A Fridge Fit for a Beach House



When I spotted this retro-looking Big Chill fridge, I knew it was just the thing for my (future) beach house. And then I saw this one:



Decisions, decisions.

  1. We used to an old refigerator like that white one. I loved how the handle opened it up. It was almost like a stick shift! lol

    Congratulations on your new blog, Beach Cottage Love!

  9. Tough call on the fridge colour. The turquoise does have a more cottage/beachy look to it, I think.

    What about a turquoise fridge door and a white freezer door -- then you don't have to choose between the two :-)

  10. I love these too (even if they aren't the most practical solution).

    I'd definitely suggest going with the white. The shade of blue will get very old, very fast. If you like that color, incorporate it in other ways like paint, art & accessories.

  11. I like the blue, but I think my favorite is the white. So clean and crisp, and definitely reminds me of being a kid at the beach!

  16. Oh how I wish!! Our house came with all new Bosch & I can't stand them! I would take these any day! I would love to gut my kitchen but will have to wait a few years before I can justify it to my accountant, er, hubby.

  20. get the WHITE! i have the blue (mine is by northstar, custom color) and i wish i had gotten white. the color i chose is beautiful, but it changes throughout the day in the light and i am so sensitive to it not matching perfectly with everything in my kitchen and so it drives me nutso from like 3-6pm! white is so clean and it just seems more "real." that's my two cents. :)
