A cheery 1945 kitchen to mark month’s end

Just a sweet and simple 40s “American” kitchen today. In my recent survey, readers asked for more from the 40s. This photo is a great example: Sweet, clear colors that are very much of the era…the cabinets, still simple and white… And as we’ve discussed before, notice the not-all-that-subtle use of patriotic red-white-blue color scheme. In this case accented by clean yellow and green.

A very cheerful crayola kitchen for a country emerging from hard times. As the copy says:

For a good start to happiness, start your plans now.

    Well, I hate to reveal so much of myself as a newbie to the site but…my favorite part of that photo are the socks on the girl! 🙂

    That’s how I’d like my kitchen to look when I’m finished remodeling my cabinets, countertop, and flooring.

    I was born in 1945, and my kitchen, God bless it, harkens back to the days when things appeared to be simpler. There are ’40’s items, as well as some from the ’50s. As I tell people, only the groceries are modern! Thank you for your website. Wish I could figure out how to send photos to accompany my comments.
