January 13, 2012Kitchens from the 1930s and 1940s
By Sablemable aka Jan
I know this is a short departure from MCM, but, on Wednesday, Pam Kueber of Retro Renovation (www.retrorenovation.com) ran a post on timeless (and horrid and unfashionable) kitchens and bathrooms. I was particularly drawn to a reply from RR reader, Chris H who has a 1917 home and wants to redo the kitchen in the style of the Thirties and Forties. So I wanted to do a post on said kitchens. Chris H! Hope you’re looking!

I am plumb craaaaaazy over that floor!
FROM MID CENTURY HOME STYLE 1940S
I do believe a few, if not all, of these kitchen styles/arrangements could work in an early MCM home.
What do you think, readers?
Hope this has helped anyone looking for kitchen ideas.
