Vintage magazine interiors

How about a bit of vintage eye candy to see us off to the weekend. I was browsing this Flickr group and here are some of my favourite images:


From "House and Garden" magazine, April 1961
You can be excused for thinking this is a Christmas themed kitchen - it's crazy!

From "Better Homes and Gardens", October 1968
Dizzy wallpaper extended from the walls to the ceiling. Not sure how much sleep I would get in this room. And look! The bin has the same paper pattern.

If I could steal one thing from this room it would be the red Eames rocker.

From "Woman and Home", December 1963
Massive cushion envy.
From "Good Housekeeping", May 1968
Not sure about matching your wallpaper to your curtains to your chair fabric but it's still a cute room. I'd kill for the pink lamp.


From "Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book", 1956

Here's a look you could replicate now. Loving the same chairs in different colours and the cluster of 3 pendant lights above the table. Must resist trying to find similar chairs on ebay.
From "Australian Home Journal Budget Decorating", September 1979
Comfy, comfy, comfy. I would claim the pink stripe chair in the foreground as mine and stare at my reflection in the glossy ceiling just because I can.

Looking at these photos makes me miss my old yellow kitchen. But only just a little.
Have a great weekend!
