Kitchen Cacophony

I bet this cathedral-ceiling kitchen has excellent acoustics, and that's why Junior is practicing his trumpet solo there. Judging from his intense focus on the sheet music, he has superior powers of concentration—which is good, because the combination of powder-puff pink appliances and barn-wood cabinets would 'distract' most people, I dare say. Even in 1963.

The copy chirpily encourages you to collect as many appliances as you can in order to achieve your dream kitchen. [Duh.] And while we're assured that their color and design 'harmonize from year to year', hindsight tells a different story; pastel colors were largely discontinued by the mid-60s, replaced by—you guessed it—Avocado, Harvest and their earth-toned ilk.
