I have a nice sized kitchen, but not very well planned for practicality. I have pretty much had everything in the same place since we moved in over a year ago. After seeing this video I am inspired to look at it with fresh eyes and get it set up to work for me.
I did say 1949... I actually like her dress, though I'm not too sure I could get away with it.
I did a quick search of 1940's kitchens and found some cute images.
Here are several cute pictures from a catalog. It has other stuff from around that time, too, but still interesting.
Here is a pic from a retro blog I found (looking for pictures). Seems there are a lot of blogs dedicated to retro design. Of course, there are blogs dedicated to just about anything, so this should be no surprise. I will check it out more later. Something about the simplicity of that time calls to me!
