This 1970s retro kitchen’s wild graphics combined a feeling for space with shouts of exuberant color. Take a look as the lines went up, down and all around.

Kitchens don’t have to be dull, and California has produced more than its share of the exciting and the innovative.

In this Los Angeles display kitchen, Designer I Jarmin Roach created a true eye-dazzler, using a graphics approach that emphasized pure, strong color, with well-defined edges to give it direct focus.

The Mondrianesque pattern was an integral part of the wall cabinet and floor materials, rather than painted on, and even though there was good storage space, the design is what one notices — not the rows of cabinets.

A wandering line continues from the vinyl tile floor up the wall, and wrapped around the room. The refrigerator, ovens and cooktops were integrated into the scheme, too, becoming vital elements of the design.

Neutrals relieved the color, letting the graphics speak emphatically for themselves, and imparted a feeling of quiet intimacy to the carpeted dining niche. Space flowed easily, both in fact and in feeling.

This kitchen was roomy (21 by 28 feet) and space-enlarging tricks such as leaving air over the cooktops, instead of filling in cabinets, opened it up even more. Vistas unfolded from each of its angles.

Californian in outlook, this 1970s kitchen decor with its unique graphical treatment was open, bold, and unhesitating.
