Recalling the home fashions of the 50's, this volume offers today's home decorator a more discerning perspective on an era that evokes endless nostalgia. With functional household products-kettles, toasters, hand blenders, and more-being fashionably designed, these stylish accessories make chores at home far more glamorous.

This colorful, easy-to-follow guide highlights the look of the period-from materials like Formica and molded plywood to the patterns of sgraffito and dissected fruit. It also provides how-to projects for creating classic styles in a modern setting.
