I need inspiration to help me create a Fifties-style diner kitchen.

I need inspiration to help create a Fifties-style diner kitchen.

I’m looking to get some inspiration and help to design a Fifties-style kitchen-diner. I don’t have a lot of space, but I’m happy to take on board any ideas.

In the Fifties, Italian cafés in London featured great materials, like strongly patterned Formicas, chrome trims, sharp angles,expressive typefaces and coherent interiors that were expertly detailed. For inspiration, try www.classiccafes.co.uk, which shows cafés that are still running, as well as ones that have disappeared.
