This Mid-Century Kitchen Hasn’t Been Touched For 60 Years

In an exciting, albeit unexpected discovery, furniture craftsman Nathan Chandler bought a house built in 1950s era that had remained uninhabited for over half a century, leaving its retro style interior in mint condition. The interior design of its mid-century kitchen provided us with a look at bygone days.

For undisclosed reasons, the original owners never moved in nor touched the space. Therefore, we have a rare opportunity to view the vintage furniture and elements of interior decoration. From the pastel pink counters to the manuals still attached to the unused home appliances, every detail in this mid-century, time-capsule kitchen looks like something straight out of a 1950s American family sitcom.

Step Back in Time By Taking a Peek at This Mid-Century Kitchen

Pastel pink is emblematic of the design of the post-war period.

Soldiers returning from the war worked on adapting to their new reality by going to college, buying homes, starting families. As consumerism and glamor swept the nation, advertisers launched campaigns aimed at mothers, fathers, children. Powdery pastels became trendy and associated with American housewives to convey youth, hospitality, kindness, and joy.

Surprisingly, the appliances and their manuals look as if they were left there only yesterday.

Everything is in excellent condition, which makes this kitchen a paradise for antique lovers.

The retro pastel pink kitchen features a stove with four burners.

The burners have stainless steel covers that shine like mirrors.

The designer kitchen even has a pastel pink oven!

The fridge is on the small side, but it is pink, fitting perfectly into the design concept.

Furthermore, it looks like the room includes one of the very first dishwashers.

Although the fate of this one-of-a-kind period home is unknown, we are thankful for the opportunity to have a look inside! How do you feel about this mid-century kitchen? Please leave your thoughts in the comments!


I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about,
why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and
i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very
much appreciated.

My brother recommended I might like this blog. He was totally right.
This post truly made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this
information! Thanks!
