MCM Porn: Kitsch-O-Rama Kitchens!

Title graphic from "Bewitched"

We have a passion for vintage kitchen interiors and wanted to share some of our faves with you. Most of these date from the late 50’s into the mid-60’s. We prefer the more modern Laura Petri style kitchens over the early 50’s Lucy Ricardo versions. Some of these feature design ideas we’d be happy to use today!

Mid Century Modern Moment
We dig this orange and pink color combo!

Vintage 60's Kitchen
Every home needs a giant asterisk in the middle of their kitchen floor!

Where do we start? This 1961 Formica Kitchen includes insulin shots for all guests.

Vintage 60's Kitchen
“Oh it was nothing! I just threw on my pearls and whipped this little snack up in no time!”

Pre-dating the “Jetsons,” we are loving this 1957 Fridgidaire Kitchen of the Future!

“Yes, Madge, you cook us something while I paint another modern masterpiece!”

Why yes, that “back yard” patio looks quite realistic in this 1961 Hotpoint Kitchen ad!

Vintage 60's Kitchen
SO Don, Betty, and Sally Draper!

Hi Michael!
What does the term “Bear” mean to you?

“A fun-loving, huggable, big, hairy guy.”

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

How would you describe your personal interior design style?

“Modern, natural & minimal. I don’t like a lot of clutter. While I prefer clean lines and a modern aesthetic I love bringing nature inside. Wood accents, plants and natural light are essential.”

What kind of music do you listen to?

“Everything from Fleetwood Mac to Drake. I love discovering new artists and I will forever be a huge Tori Amos fan.”

“I am an avid Crossfitter. It may not be everyone’s thing but it certainly works for me. I come from an endurance background, so incorporating weightlifting is essential if I want to bulk up. I try to go to Crossfit least 5-7 times a week. I also enjoy swimming, biking, hiking and skiing when I can.”

Occupation: “I work as an Art Director and Photographer.”

Hobbies: “Cooking, Crossfit, outdoors, music, painting/drawing, travel, photography.”

Turn Ons: “Blue eyes, strong hands, creativity, spontaneity, affectionate guys, confidence and above all someone that makes me laugh.”

Turn Offs: “A negative disposition, bullies, unacceptance within our own community, ignorance and arrogance. “

Personal Statement:
“Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
