The only kitchen I've had that was the "retro" colors was my first apartment and the appliances were Copper. Looked brown to me.
Growing up we had white, avocado green and harvest gold. I hate white appliances and the harvest gold didn't show fingerprints as bad as the darn stainless steel stuff. I'm constantly cleaning the stove and refrigerator with stainless steel cleaner because the finish is nothing like commercial appliances.
