Green Kitchen

Well I found this very Australian Kitchen in Australian Home Beautiful, February 1941. It gives a good idea of the standard type of kitchen in Australia in the 40's & 50's.

Things we have talked about for out kitchen are, steel benches (same as the pic), metal handles, small green tile splash back all the way up (much like the yellow in the pic), white/cream (haven't agreed on that yet) cupboards, oh and a green floor to match the walls. However we are having a galley kitchen with a breakfast bar.
Well it's a start, as you can see there are some difference in kitchens from the US to Australian, as we were still on a lot harsher rationing until the middle of the 1950's but then some things are the same. In some ways Australia was a decaed behind the rest of the world, but what we had we had lots of.
