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!

    In Feng Shui, the Fire or stove is best positioned in the center of the house, or at least the center of the kitchen. How did we get away from this practice and start putting the stove against the wall? I had no idea island cooktops were so popular as recently as the designs you showed here. Perhaps that was in part to MidCentury fascinations with exotica – japanese, polynesian, design concepts? Thanks!

    I’m stoked to see these pics especially the kitchens. Mine is 1960 Westinghouse w same stove & oven original to the building. Cherry wood furniture(some) & brick-o-brack from ’59. Now it’s time to cruise your site. Wuff, mark
