Breakfast, lunch or dinner would have been a sunny, warm affair in this California kitchen/dining room, as seen back in the mid-1970s.

The designers, Rowen & Mentzer, combined two distinct country patterns to cover the walls — and even the ceiling — of what is most easily described as a country-style breakfast nook.

The first wallpaper print featured squares arranged in “crazy quilt” style. In it, there were nine different two-pattern combinations with 8 triangles arranged in a pinwheel shape. This geometric print was repeated in the fabric for the chair cushions.

The second wallpaper style, below the quilt design paper, had a yellow background with repeated large patterns of multicolored flowers.

The vintage baskets hanging on the wall above the hutch were family heirlooms.
