Don Mills Decorating: A 1953 Multipurpose Kitchen

“You can cook… sew… wash… iron… in this all purpose kitchen!” says this ad from Crane Ltd. …Oh BOY, can I? But all snide jokes aside, I thought the angled roof and clerestory windows made it worthy of note – I know there’s more than a few homes on Cottonwood and Paperbirch Drive with this type of kitchen configuration – though probably not quite so big… and full of so many exciting, mind-numbing domestic chore possibilities!

Of special note: The bat-phone on the wall, and the brushed aluminum hanging light, and the silver tea service on the sink. You know, just in case Princess Margaret drops in while you’re starching hubby’s shirts.
