Roberts Radio RD60 DAB Digital Radio in Duck Egg


Ever noticed how some of the best dressed kitchens have Roberts radios in them? I have. I couldn't believe it when I looked into Roberts radios and found that they have just launched new Spring colours; among them is the gorgeous duck egg blue! It is also the first eco-friendly retro style digital radio they have produced, with a battery life of around 120 hours. As you know, duck egg blue is going to be the highlight colour in my new kitchen so I couldn't resist ordering one for the window sill.

Have a sweet day!

  2. I just love these and would love one! Duck egg blue is beautiful - altho I might go for pale pink or the Cath Kidston floral print which I have seen around a lot. Enjoy yours :)

    I thought of you on Saturday when I finally got to visit Anthropologie on Regent Street....what an experience, isn't it a gorgeous shop. Every bit as lovely as I expected and more. I would have spent hours there but the pull of Hamleys just up the road was just too much for some people!

    Happy Monday :)

  10. Now yoy've given me a complex about my plain ordinary kitchen radio!! And yes, sad as ever, my first thought on all these white rooms is 'what a lot of work to keep it clean'!!

  11. Hi Torie Jayne,
    Well, I'm probably the only one to remember Robert's Radio's as a child !!!!....can't believe that I've just admitted that !!..... They weren't in such beautiful colours then though. I think that one will look beautiful in your new kitchen.
    I am also loving the kitchen's that you have shown us. You always make me want to re-decorate !! XXXX

  14. One of those pictures is actually of my kitchen! The reason that the Roberts Radio turns up in so many stylish kitchens is because the stylist for the magazine turns up with it on the day of the shoot and ensures that it is in the photo!
