These bright and boldly-colored kitchen countertops and cabinetry were made from plastic-topped Formica in shades of red, blue, chartreuse and white.
The colorful surfaces got bonus flair from the red and black poppy flower wallpaper — and matching curtains — at the end of the room.
What made that section of the kitchen stand out was the custom peninsula-style mix-bake center, which offered everything from an area to store and stir, to a cool white marble inset that was perfect for rolling out dough.

The full-size photo below shows just one part of this vintage 1960s kitchen. But first, here you can also see some of its other features: an oven, an appliance garage with a red slide-up door, and an under-cabinet enclosure for a stand mixer on a pull-out shelf.
Nearby were the sink, oven and refrigerator, along with additional counter space and more full-height cabinetry.
The entire space was actually divided up into six sections: 1. Mix-Bake, 2. Food preparation and cleanup, 3. Cooking, 4. Eating, 5. Refrigerating-freezing, and 6. Serving.
On the far side of this room, beyond the telephone and the typewriter, could be found a sewing center and a laundry area.
