From December 1950 issue of "Better Home and Gardens"
"Kitchens are for Living"
"Our kitchen is the heart of your home. It's where your family gathers after work or after the movies to talk, and to snack, and to read the newspaper. So make your kitchen as livable as it can be. The Glade Porters of Glendale, California, chose cherry colors, patterned wallpaper, natural wood cabinets and added a friendly fireplace. You can too."

Before Updating for the 2012 Lifestyle
When our clients purchased this home in 2010, they became the 3rd homeowner. Before then, little had changed. Along the way the natural wood cabinets and wood ceilings were painted "white". Appliances were upgraded to circa 1960's sleek black models, and an addition of a dishwasher was added. The original wood flooring was covered with sheet vinyl and the old fashion pattern wallpaper was replaced with "white" paint. Even a built-in recessed toaster was installed. Yet, the bones of the kitchen remained intact.
|In the late 60's appliances were changed|
MKandcompany Interior Design and Decoration gives this dated kitchen the respect it deserved by maintaining the original bones and details.
|Today the charm remains|
