60s kitchen – a colorful example

60s kitchen 1966

60s kitchen 1966Okay, I admit that I really may be losing my mind, but I love this kitchen! There are so many elements that come together so nicely:

  • The white French Provincial cabinets.
  • Of course, the fabulous wallpaper enveloping the room in color.
  • The window shade – a version of which you can still order today.
  • The vintage embossed linoleum/sheet vinyl floor.
  • And be sure to enlarge the thumbnail to see the Frigidaire Flair (or imitator) range – very very cool.

The laminate countertop is what pushes this kitchen design into kitsch (especially when combined with the wallpaper.) If you used something more neutral — a white washed woodgrain would be great — I think the room would be more timeless. That said, so ’66!

    Wow! I swear this wallpaper is almost identical to what we had in our kitchen when I was growing up, except ours was in shades of orange. I got such a kick out of seeing this! -Julia 🙂

    These are the very cabinets in the bathroom of the house my husband and I are in the process of purchasing. Even the hardware!
