There's something about a well-designed kitchen that makes me want to abandon my takeout-loving ways and transform into the type of person who hosts dinner parties on the regular and whips up delectable meals with ease. Or at least someone who plays the part on Instagram.
And nothing piques my interest more than a light, airy kitchen with a few pops of pastel. Coincidentally that seems to be exactly the aesthetic of most popular Instagram influencers. The secret to their style? A smattering of retro-inspired, pastel appliances from Smeg.

Saasha Burns, the founder of bespoke vitamin brand Bear Ltd., took a more subdued approach, pairing her white Smeg fridge with simple white subway tiles (and a surfboard, of course).
Sam Ushiro, the colorful blogger behind Aww Sam, went a bit bolder with her recent kitchen remodel. Her pink fridge sits atop a rainbow floor and is accented with pink chairs, a pink Smeg toaster, and a multicolored assortment of accessories.
The classic mint green fridge popped up again in the studio space Emily Henderson designed for Joy Cho of Oh, Joy. She played off the colorful choice by creating a rainbow-inspired baseboard for the white cabinets.

Jennifer Dittrich of Interior Dame chose to pair her mint fridge with dark cabinets for an unexpected contrast that feels decidedly design-forward.
