The pieces from the new collection pay homage to a vintage kitchen aesthetic that is more than just a fleeting phase. Instead, Joanna invites you to fill your space with timeless pieces that will struggle to go out of style.  Here’s all you need to know about the Magnolia-approved interior design trend. 

Joanna Gaines’ vintage kitchen trend

Many products in Magnolia’s spring 2022 collection celebrate the vintage kitchen trend – but none more so than the Vintage Blue Stripe Bowl (opens in new tab) (above). According to Magnolia, this bowl is inspired by vintage crockery found at an antique fair (a favorite haunt of Joanna’s).  The designer recommends pairing the bowl with the Vintage Blue Stripe Plates and Tumblers for a coordinated set. Joanna Gaines’ collections consist of several vintage-inspired pieces, including a large mixing bowl and zinc scalloped plant pots that will elevate your kitchen houseplants (below). However, the designer is not alone in her adoration for this timeless kitchen trend.  deVOL’s (opens in new tab) Creative Director, Helen Parker, also highlights the vintage kitchen movement that will reshape our schemes this springtime. ‘It is definitely worth spending time sourcing vintage pieces to break up a room; they can really make a difference to the finished look and always add personality and character,’ she says.  

How to style vintage pieces in the kitchen 

Whether you’ve invested in a Magnolia piece or you’ve sourced a local antique market, the secret to styling remains the same: be brave.  ‘It is buying vintage or unusual pieces rather than high street shopping. It is putting things in your kitchen that may be better suited to a living room or your grandma’s home,’ Helen explains. The kitchen expert urges you to be brave and unique in your color choices and steer away from a tried and tested (but obvious) look. ‘It’s about mixing up old with new and always trying to source authentic and well-made pieces,’ she adds.  Are our future modern kitchen ideas rooted in the past? Joanna Gaines would certainly suggest so.
