Emile Norman’s pebble concrete mural and counter, which was silicone treated against dust and grease, made this retro kitchen as decorative as a living room.

The various layers were made with different colors of concrete and rock/pebble additions. Some stones were embedded and provided texture to the mosaic mural, while others held space during the molding phase, and then were removed to create round-shaped empty spaces.

The thick grey concrete countertop and the brown cabinetry below both echoed colors in the composition.

This model kitchen was built at the Los Angeles County Fair as part of House Beautiful’s “Exhibition of the Arts of Daily Living” in 1954.
