Actually, out at the Oklahoma Historical Society's new museum complex, they've got one of those pink nightmares set up on display! It'll make you queasy just standing in front of it!

I dunno. It's better than that awful avacado that was so in style in the 70s.

ETA: I like the second one. The blue on pink is pretty. Reminds me of 50's era cars.

Procter & Gamble used to install kitchens of that color in order upset people's stomachs.

And look at the price of a whole new kitchen- $3100-3600!

Pink should never be a decorating choice. Never.

What's with the weird-ass monkey thing hanging off the right-hand counter in the all-pink kitchen? Where do I get me one of those?

On second thought, maybe it's a lobster?

Does anyone else think it's a bit odd to have the washer/dryer right in there with everything else? Looks like too much work to me. I enjoy cooking, but staring at the laundry would ruin it for me.

Oh, that's the washer/dryer? I thought it was some sort of weird oven combination.

What are those green, ball things sticking up in the foreground? Are they plants?

Since I don't see a pink oven, it could be some kind of cooking equipment. But the blue one definintely is a washer/dryer.

Someone else suggested the green ball things were plastic topiaries.

We did not have either of these pallettes in our house growing up. My mother tended toward avacado green in the early seventies and chocolate brown in the later seventies.

No one besides me thinks that pink kitchen is kind of cute?
