A 1956 yellow-pink-aquamarine Youngstown kitchen – so sweet

Several readers have asked about color combo’s for their yellow kitchens, including what I thought of a turquoise/aquamarine floor. Hey – this works fine, don’t you think? Aquamarine actually has more yellow than blue in it. And how about the pink walls – including the butterfly wallpaper.

Another readers asked about installing boomerang/chevron pulls on cabinet doors vertically. This looks great, too!

Finally, re the floor – notice the three stripes of darker green vinyl tile interrupting the mass of floor… nice, without overdoing it.

Altogether… such a well-designed kitchen!

Thanks to Java1888 from flickr for the photo — he has TONS of great vintage images on his photostream, he’s one of my very favorites! Image: Youngstown Kitchens.

    So sweet and yummy, but not too over-done or cutesy… The kitchen table and lamp add some “edge” with a modern touch. Love it!!! I’ve been going crazy trying to decide on a pattern for our kitchen floor – now here’s another option, dang it!
