I love the visual imagery of this illustration from 1956 which is predicting what kitchens will look like in 1976 – the blocks of color in a grid-like fashion remind me of Piet Mondrian’s paintings (even though this one has more different colors than Mondrian ever used). It appeared in the article “Predictions of Family Life 20 Years From Now” in the January 1956 issue of “Everywoman’s Magazine.” The illustration was by H.B. Vestal … wouldn’t it be cool to have a kitchen as colorful as this?
