Several shades of green were in play in this vintage 1960s kitchen — from a dark spruce in the floral daisy wallpaper, to the chartreuse of the cabinetry, to the slightest hint of lime in the lemon yellow Formica countertops.

Only one part of the meal prep area is shown here — the kitchen island cooking center, which had an electric cooktop and oven at its center.

Behind the oven, the countertops were raised about four inches, creating a breakfast bar that was also open to the dining area nearby. The high shelf added extra serving space, and shielded the stove burners from view on the other side.


The bright and bold colors were relieved by white appliances and accessories, as well as an old-fashioned black stove hood-style exhaust fan that was nearly as wide as the kitchen island it hovered above.

A dark wood cabinet served as a pantry, with its finish matching that of the exposed beams in the ceiling.

That tall storage, a step away in the background, held small appliances, food supplies and paper napkins and towels. Storage below the counter included drawers and sleves for utensils, pans, lids, molds and broilers.
