White kitchen appliances are making a comeback

Originally kitchens were simply a room with shelving, a wood stove, and an eating area. When household electricity became available, kitchen appliances came on the scene with just one choice of color: white. In the 1950s, pastels were the rage, including colors such as Sherwood Green, Turquoise Green, Stratford Yellow, Canary Yellow, Woodtone Brown, Cadet Blue, and Petal Pink. These options offered exciting new decorating opportunities.
