Kitchen decor, interior dwelling, Prior St, Tarragindi - Brisbane

The 1950s kitchen

 

Although the kitchen was commonly situated at the back of the house, it became a central part of home life in the post-war period.

 

The 1950s kitchen was invariably U-shaped and it was where the housewife spent much of her time. She had all the latest appliances, from a mixmaster for baking to the latest bubble fridge.

 

Decor was a whirl of pastels and florals.

 

Motto: Match your apron to the wallpaper.
