Think Pink: How to Rock the Retro Kitschen Revival

Girl gloss mode is activated with retro-inspired, high-shine lacquered tableware that’ll turn your kitchen into a Kitschen!

Here at Gigi & Tom we’ve been dipping into drip-worthy pops of colourful ceramics to keep our kitchens kitschy and cute! Firm believers that injecting fun into everyday life is the key to happiness, we’ve taken inspiration from retro kitchenware with a sweet kick.

How can one race into the retro revival?
Think pink of course! Whether channelling the OG 1950’s pink princess, Barbie, or taking inspo from Grease’s Pink Ladies (#teamrizzo), pink was the primary colour dominating the 50’s aesthetic from cars to makeup to fashion to furnishings, and for good reason.

Full of joy and feminine energy, it is little surprise that pink was coming in hot during the late 50’s as the cultural second-wave of feminism emerged. Today, the colour is as pretty and popular as ever amongst all ages and genders, whether you prefer pretty and pastel or hot and shocking shades à la Valentino FW22/23.

As temperatures drop, our craving for creature comforts naturally piques, equating to more time spent pottering around the house and whipping up winter warmers. It is no coincidence that the chilly season coincides with Cancer season, and just like it’s (hermit) crabby persona, home life and hibernation scuttles to the fore of this crustacean core.

As we spend more time nesting, hosting, baking (or ordering in), the simple joy of serving mouthwatering morsels on cute-as-a-button kitchenware is a true celebration of the joys of girlhood. Our latest range of endorphin-boosting bakeware and kitschy kitchenware has been crafted in a charming colour palette of pinks, white and red in high-shine, glossy shades from baby to Barbie. A simple, sweet and easy way to add colour to your home, colourful tableware injects personality to mealtimes with minimum commitment. Turn up the retro vibes with sweet, scalloped tablecloths and napkins or go full force with pink lacquered appliances straight out of a Smeg catalogue.

No matter the current decade, we’ll be channelling our inner domestic goddess’ as we rock the retro resurgence with crockery in complementary shades designed to be mixed and matched to perfect the quirky, cute charm of kitschen-ware. Join our girl gang and shop our Kitschen collection now.
