When I was in my teens we had a friend of the family who once he retired would travel for about five or six months out of the year. A lot of that time he would need someone to watch his house for him. It was a small two bedroom house with a basement that we would look after and spend the night at provided we cleaned up.
Now, one of the interesting things about this house is that it was purchased sometime in the 1950s and he had lived in it since then.
He was the only owner and kept everything original. It was amazing, all the kitchen stuff looked brand new and was totally original.
In a strange and unexpected discovery, furniture designer and creator Nathan Chandler found and bought a home that had remained sealed since 1956, keeping its mid-century American interior perfectly intact.
Though the house has recently been sold, the retro interior design of this kitchen provided us with a look at a time long gone.
The fate of this period kitchen is uncertain, but we’re glad to have had a look into such a strangely-preserved historic space!
The first thing you’ll notice is that this kitchen has pink everywhere
