Pretty In Pink Ovens

April 24th, 2017 · 7 Comments

Pink was a popular color in kitchens in the 1950s and early 1960s. Let’s take a look at four pink ovens that are still in use today after five decades.

    They certainly don’t make things like they used to! I’ve had 3 stoves in 40 years.

    My mother-in-law is still using the washer and dryer that she got as wedding gifts 57 years ago.

    I remember my aunt had a pink kitchen back in the early 60’s. I want to love them but not sure I can.

    I’m actually a fan of these old Frigidaire built-in ranges and ovens. Pink probably would not be my choice but I would be delighted to use the 1961 Mesa, Arizona kitchen

    The neat pink Mesa kitchen needs to have the fridge colour-matched. The Phoenix kitchen needs the same to turn that white microwave pink. That will make both pink kitchens perfect.
    The irritating thing is, if either of these kitchens would use mint green, black, or navy instead of the bland wall or floor colours, these would have really stylish “zing”. My late aunt had a pink and black art deco kitchen in the 1950’s and as a child I found it breathtakingly modern.
