I grew up in an older home, but when my parents got married they updated most of the appliances. Those appliances would be the ones we used for my entire childhood. Most of my friend’s homes shared this trait and I always found it interesting to see the decisions a young couple made when moving into a home for the first time. More than a few of what I saw were kitchens like this 1970s yellow kitchen. And this wasn’t in the 1970s, this was well into the 1990s.
Nowadays I see a lot of stainless steel and I wonder in 20 years, when everyone is back on avocado green appliances, how weird they will think all this stuff was…
