The 1950s kitchen
Dear Blogging friends and family,
Welcome to Tuesday (if you are in Australia, or Monday for those elsewhere),
A little bit of fun to brighten up your day (!!)
After sharing with you last week the pink bathroom, I though it would be fun to visit some 1950's kitchens and yes, I was able to locate a few pink ones plus yellow, green, blue and white!! Colour, or more correctly the pastels was very fashionable in the 1950s. They make our modern kitchens look rather lacking in character.
What do you think? — fan or not?
Women of the 1950s were so proud of their new kitchens. They had come out of the war years and wanted something bright, new, slick and "advanced" and they were compared to kitchens of previous decades. They came with all the mod-cons and made cooking easier than ever and I can imagine women eager to cook in them.
Whilst I wouldn't want a 1950s style kitchen in my own house, they do bring back sweet memories of my childhood as I can remember going into older homes and seeing kitchens just like these.
What colour is your favourite? I quite like the pale yellow or the blue (quite calming) — pink is just not quite the right colour for cooking and green is too hospital looking to me!!
What colour is your current kitchen - mine is blue and white and red appliances.
Have a fabulous day dear friends and I will chat with you tomorrow.
Finding joy (its not hard to find)
This bright yellow would be far too hard first thing in the morning - I would certainly wake up with a shock!!
