The Retro Kitchen of THE FUTURE !!

This 1950's glamourized vision of a kitchen of the future, might look a little dated now, but back then, anything that was plastic or chrome metal, was considered cutting edge!
Of course this film depicts the fantasy kitchen, as envisioned at the time - funny how we've all gone " old world "  again, now that the future is here ! .In the actual 1950's kitchen of the period, popular colors were pastel shades like pink, aqua and turquoise in tiling, walls, curtains.Tupper wear was everywhere of course - plastic again !

Dandie and Brian from Bike and Birds , glam it up for a 1950's theme Halloween Party.

There is however something really heartwarming and nostalgic about the 1950's kitchen. Perhaps it was the optimistic outlook folks had about the future.
