Porch dining — well, almost! As seen in the late 1950s, a cheerful wallpaper mural gave this eating area off the kitchen a whimsical outdoor feel.

Shoji screen folding shutters — with light blue frames around opaque plastic — flanked the windows, so they were attractive opened or closed.

Short cafe curtains of white with blue screened diners from the (real) street, and vice versa.

Painted black “planters” and “fencing” around the eat-in kitchen’s Parisian sidewalk cafe offered the room form, while the blue and orchid color accents were refreshing even on the hottest days.

The table and chairs were made of melamine-topped metal, in a style that played well with the trompe l’oeil decorations. 

The finishing touch was the hanging lamp over the dining table. The curved metal pattern over the glass shade provided good lighting and just the right French accent.
