      Toniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!! Even though I’m a MCM chick, I absolutely love that first image of the 1930 kitchen! Yes, I could easily move into that era home!

    I love them all but the last one with the aqua, pink and yellow is my favorite! I so want those back slanted cabinets above the countertop! At only 4’10” tall, I dream of all my storage within reach 🙂

      Andreaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was reading where that color green used during the depression was actually called Depression Green, LOL! The 1937 mod kitchen is one of my favorites, too!

        My grandmother had just about everything from upholstery to glassware in that shade of green! I didn’t realise it had a name. She would have been choosing things for her house (in England) in the late 30s.

        I love the 1947 green and white kitchen, especially the breakfast nook.

    Drool… I can’t decide which I like the best! I really like that salmon pink and white one, I think seeing all the mix of patterns, and then the salmon counter tops are pretty awesome, too. Who am I kidding… all those counter tops are awesome.
