Orange Vintagewares from yay retro!

Orange is a wonderful retro colour which brings to mind the 1960s and 70s, when bright ceramics, plastics and melaware came to the fore in homes across Britain. Nowadays people just adore this colour-scheme anew, mixing orange tones with lime green, rich chocolate and a range of blues to great effect in the modern vintage homes.

yay retro! love to show you vintage homewares that look great together...Let's start with the bright orange flowery Crown Devon ware, designed by Mary Quant, it's a really quick way to add an instant vintage feel to your kitchen. We have a whole host of items in this pattern, including a huge biscuit jar, coffee and sugar storage jars, a large flour jar and even flour and sugar shakers!

We think this would look marvellous alongside a set of 70s orange Melaware Cups and Saucers. Melamine was a key contender to usurp breakable china and ceramics in our kitchens back in the day, so much so that some potteries even developed their own ranges of Melamine tea sets (just in case)! However, as a nation we never lost our love of china cups for the great British cuppa. Now we see melaware tea sets being sought after in today's kitchens as they are so stylish and resilient.

How about popping these adorable cups on a stunning vintage flowery tray? This St Michael brand tray from 1970s Marks & Spencer is one of the most looked for designs. These trays are ideal to use as design feature in your kitchen, pop it on your worktop to frame your vintage homeware collection when not in use. 

If you fancy buying several yay retro! vintage homeware items at once, we always aim to combine postage for you if we can safely do so (packaging wise), refunding any postage not required. Why not pop into yay retro! now?
