From the mid-30s to the 50s, Hazel Dell Brown loved those bird cages. This is still a really cool kitchen. Put that soup on and kick back with Good Housekeeping til the kids get home from school. What a life! Source: Dream Kitchens for 1941 by Hazel Dell Brown for Armstrong Cork Company.

As part of our 150th anniversary celebration, we’re featuring the color palettes from the most memorable decades, starting with the 1930s and ’40s. The Bauhaus-inspired modern movement featured impactful, streamlined design. Interior colors tended to be soft and dusty with yellows, bluish grays and pinks with deep green and burgundy accents. Want this look for your home? Try Vogue Green SW 0065, Cascade Green SW 0066, Belvedere Cream SW 0067, Copen Blue SW 0068 and Orchid SW 0071.
