Retro Kitchen 1



Ahh--there is something appealing about old school modern. Granted the 60's, 70's and 80's all had their "why in the hell?" design moments but I occasionally find the decor of those eras to be quite appealing.

Sometimes when casually haunting Open House events, I come across homes where the elderly occupants have a minty fresh 1960's or 70's kitchen that wants to be remodeled but doesn't particularly need to be. Sure, the wallpaper and period flooring often leave scars on your eyeballs but sometimes the nostalgia has a pleasant taste. I'm also in awe of how anyone can keep any part of their home looking like day one after 20, 30, 40 plus years and several children later. Are the rest of us doing something wrong??

Above is a quick retro kitchen design in the Voila Large Dollhouse that features vintage and current Bodo Hennig, Momoll, Mighty World and Re-Ment accessories.
