How about this fabulous 1966 St. Charles metal and wood kitchen?
- Cool how it combines wood with metal. And French Provincial wood, no less.
- This was part of the transition to kitchens that looked like furniture – like the rest of the house, which was now encroaching as ‘open concept’ design truly takes hold.
- Awesome oven and range. So Samantha Stevens!
- Great mix and match of colors and materials as you move from space to space – showing that your retro kitchen does not have to be all matchy-matchy – works especially if you have a large space to work with, keeps the eye moving.
- Peek at the wonderful green patterned sofa, and painted panel walls in the adjacent family room.
- And here we have — harvest gold and avocado together! By 1966, the 70s have arrived!
One change that I would recommend: I think it’s much smarter to have the working sink positioned between the fridge and the stovetop, rather than at the far end. Much better for working efficiency.
Want to start re-inventing this look for yourself? There a large set of St. Charles cabinets, in Denver, just posted this week on the Postwar Steel Forum (top nav bar) that has a similar look. Snap them up, and you are well on your way to funky town!
