Is your family keen for outdoor living, your home tuned in to its surroundings? Then tune in the kitchen, too, and color it spectacular. In 1969l, the outdoor look was “in”!

For this kitchen from the late sixties, the interior designers suggested leaving behind the drab old brown cabinets that were typical of so many kitchens, and following the lead of this green-and-white one, inspired by Florida’s lush landscape.

So how about some swappable cabinet decor? Reversible center panels on these cabinet doors made it simple to change your decorating when you changed your mind.

Seen here, out front was a white lattice pattern, cut from vinyl fabric, and placed over shiny black patent leather. The wallpaper over the window echoed the theme with a popular wicker-style motif.

Throughout this retro space, the curved shape spelled added efficiency — and the free-wheeling kitchen island (complete with cabinetry and a countertop) could be parked wherever needed.

Over the window, wood blinds were laced with yarn and grass-green carpeting that matched the fresh, outdoor mood of the whole space.

  1. That’s a great idea for today’s kitchens also. Maybe Americans wouldn’t throw everything into the landfill if they could switch things out a bit.
