1966 Kitchen Fashion Portfolio

Family Circle magazine has always been a welcome guide for homemakers (7,500,000, the cover boasts!), covering everything from cost saving cuisine families love to affordable fashions and home decoration. On that note, Family Circle ran this 'Kitchen Fashion Portfolio' in its February 1966 issue. Why, a lot of these solutions are still relevant today! You'll want to click on the pictures for more information on how these looks could be achieved in your own kitchen!

Nice countertops and really nice pans!

Add a wall area and some matching window treatments!

A great look for a 'junk snupper'!

Here's an advertisement from the same magazine that I thought would go well with this post. The product is Armstrong flooring. While the shiny floor does attract the eye, other things like the hanging pretzels, the garish 'barbecue' sign, and the odd bust that is placed much lower than all other room decorations might keep the eye for longer than intended.

Nothing says "I have a stylish kitchen" like hanging pretzels.

Stylish and clean! I just don't think leaving food hanging about like that is a good thing!
