Obsessed with Aqua!

20-retro-aqua-Items-for-your-RV-kitchenWhen we put the deposit down on our first RV, my next goal was to begin accessorizing! I wanted our RV to have a cool, retro vibe, as I am a huge fan of midcentury modern design and the RV lifestyle undeniably has a very midcentury, Great American Roadtrip feel about it. I knew we would not make many mods to this RV, so accessorizing to bring in that retro feel was important.

Our 2016 Holiday Rambler Admiral XE has retro black and white leather dinette cushions that makes me think of a man’s bowling shirt and the way that it is color blocked. I wanted to pull that retro feeling into the kitchen, and so I began my online hunt. I started looking at cream colors, which I LOVE in small appliances, but felt that too much of that would make for a stark black and white look which I did not want.

And then, I became obsessed with aqua (or turquoise, or teal, if you prefer).

It all started with a stock photo of the Winnebago View’s ultra-modern kitchen with lovely aqua cookware sitting on the stove. I really wanted that ultra-modern kitchen, however after test driving the View, we knew it would be too cramped for two adults and two Siberian Huskies. I imagined them (the huskies) on the small sofa and us on the floor watching TV at night. Yeah.

I digress. You know I hunted everywhere for that cookware set and finally found the GreenPan Focus 10pc Ceramic Non-Stick Cookware Set in Turquoise. After that, I never looked back and it was aqua all the way.

Here is the complete list of all my aqua accessories!
