|Lundby 1970s doll house kitchen.|
As kids we loved playing house. We loved pretending we were "the mom." Some of us had playhouses outside. Some had toy kitchens complete with pots, pans and plastic foods. Some of us had miniature houses or doll houses.
The coolest room in any doll house was always the kitchen. There was something about the appliances, tiny bowls, plates, cups and saucers and micro-sized silverware. Doll houses were memorizing. They could keep a child's attention for hours -- well at least that's how it was for me.
I didn't have this exact kitchen (see above), but possibly a friend, neighbor or relative did. I remember it so clearly. It's designed by Lundby, a Swedish company. If I were single or married to a retro fanatic, I swear I would try to emulate this kitchen in our future home. Stainless steel is cool and modern is awesome, but there's something comforting about the older styles. Something that brings me back to simpler times of my 1970s childhood. Days when mom made her own bread and yogurt and avocado, brown, yellow and orange were the coolest colors ever.
