1950s classic: a new old English Rose kitchen

I’m all for salvaging in favour of splashing out, but sometimes there’s just nothing left to salvage. I’ve been idly checking out the wonderful Salvoweb for a while to see if there are any English Rose kitchens going begging, hoping to snag a bargain. But there are very few of them about, what’s left always looks a bit knackered, and what are the odds of it actually fitting your existing kitchen? So I was very pleased to find out that John Lewis of Hungerford are doing a very passable looky-likey, its Creme de la Creme range. You won’t get that thrill of discovering a modern classic at a knockdown price (far from it, unfortunately) but you will get the same scrumptious curves, ice-cream colours, metallic handle indents and, most importantly, that vibe of post-war, never-had-it-so-good optimism.
