Amazing Kodachrome Photos Capture People at Home in the 1950s

The 1950s were a decade filled with exuberance, radiating a positive outlook from the United States triumphant post-war recovery. The emphasis of a ’50s household was on comfort and leisure, with the decade being a prosperous time for most middle class families.

More and more families were flocking to the suburbs, abandoning their city slicker lifestyles for a cozy home in a neighborhood and a big backyard for Fido. And because there was more time allocated for recreation and relaxation, interior design and d├ęcor became vibrant and fun.

Pastel colors and patterned dishware made for cozy kitchens, while colorful walls and furniture in living rooms made for the perfect place to settle down and watch the tube.

These amazing Kodachrome photos were found by Suzanne that show what house interiors looked like in the late 1950s.
