This little kitchen from 1959 pretty much had it all.

For the surfaces, there was retro wood wall paneling everywhere (Weldwood prefinished Charter Walnut V Plank), Formica-like countertops (covered in white Micarta), and yellow linoleum flooring with white 4-point star insets (by Congoleum-Nairn).

For functionality, there were white & stainless steel vintage appliances (by Hotpoint), along with a black and white dinette set (by Chromcraft).

When it came to the other stereotypical midcentury modern kitchen decor, both windows had double tiers of multicolored polka dot cafe curtains, and there were three pendant lights — in pink, yellow and blue — hanging from one fixture.

And for the chef’s kiss, hanging on the back wall was a black and white contemporary-style starburst clock with white orbs on each hour.
