This "Bright Kitchen" from a spread in HouseBeautiful's 1966 edition actually looks very enormous. However, you can see the laminate cabinets, counter tops, and (cheaply) mass produced appliances of the era.
Rhiannon's Jadeite Jewel of a Kitchen — Kitchen Tour
In September of last year, Rhiannon and her family moved from Oakland, California to a 1938 Portland home set into the green streets of the Laurelhurst neighborhood. The first order of business? Restore the kitchen, bringing back some of the space's inherent charm and color, but adding a few modern appliances to make cooking for a family easy. Join Rhiannon for a cup of tea in this adorable kitchen, rich with a lifetime's collection of jadeite.
