|These red vintage style appliances are showstoppers. The black and white tile just adds to the "retroness"
|This stove appears pretty authentic, but look closely and see what current feature it has.
Does anyone remember cooking on a stove like this....or maybe there was one in your mother's or grandmother's kitchen? This oldie was on display in the store, but not for sale. Don't you love the advertisement?
|Look at that double oven! What a nice work space by the burners too.
|Not only does this beauty have a "Sensational new quick-set automatic timer", but it also has a spectacular built in "Jiffy Griddle". I think it is behind "door #2" on the right. When you open the door the 2 burner griddle slides out.
|In the yellow shaded lighting the finish takes on a bronze tone, which is something to remember when selecting the lighting for your own home. Slate is softer and less obvious than black while still adding a rich tone to go with darker cabinets.
|I don't remember the avocado being this bright and cheerful, but I do remember wearing bell bottoms !
|I think the second photo may be my own kitchen from the 70's! And look they even made avocado green sinks to match the appliances too! The light fixture in the top photo is back in style. Maybe there is truth in if you hang on to it, it comes back?
We have probably all seen what they call "integrated" appliances in kitchens. That is where the appliance has a panel on the front that matches the kitchen cabinets. The appliances blend in so well that sometimes you don't even realize what you are looking at!
|This built-in could almost pass as a pantry with drawers below.
Can you guess where the freezer is?
|This would be great for a wine conoseur but if not, you can have a refrigerator on both sides. Yes, the freezer is on the bottom.
|Yes, I think this old faithful deserves it's blue ribbon!
