Last fall several people were sharing pictures of the kitchens in their mid-century homes. I finally got around to taking pictures of mine. Considering the room is approximately 8' by 10', there is only one angle that you can really see it from.
My house is an open-concept floor plan, which for this area, was very ahead of it's time when the house was built in the late 1950s. My living room, dining room, and kitchen are all one big open area, seperated by a couple of half-walls.
Since the living room is done in the colors of avocado green, burnt orange and brown, the kitchen and dining room are in keeping with this. I painted the two walls in the kitchen a color from Sherwin Williams called "Brassy" which really looks like good-old avocado to me. I love the way it looks.
Here's the view from the living room.
And the view from the hallway.
Looking from the hallway through the kitchen, dining room and living room toward the door to the garage.
One last view of the kitchen. Small but efficient!
