14 April 1957 “Oh, What A Darling Little Home”

Hubby and I are in the middle of our staycation. Today we are building our stonewall in the front of our house and have been busy doing yard work. This actually is quite enjoyable. We have punctuated it with walks and little jaunts, in between the rain of course.

Therefore, with the 1940’s theme, I thought I would share this great little short article about this darling couple. They have a sweet little one story home. The husband is a band musician and enjoys word work in his basement shop. Look at the cute little touches he has made. Also notice the price tag for the home and land was only $4100. That is about $50,000 with today’s inflation.

And here are some great magazine looks for what was the latest thing in 1940’s interiors. Simply click the image and it will take you to a great Flickr page of these interiors.

Isn’t it interesting here how the modern is still mixed with a sort of homey antiquity, as the floral wallpaper yet the bold deep almost black green back ground setting off the ice cream mint and pink pain colors.


Have a wonderful day and if you get a chance, do a little house dreaming.
