ENTER: The Time Machine Part IV- The 1950's

By
Home Stager with Empire Home Staging Solutions

Time has shown us some very different styles and trends throughout the century's, but there is one decade that really grasps the heart of America and introduces to us the new sound of Rock & Roll!    

Let's hop back in our Home Staging Time Machine and travel back to the day's of bobbie socks, poodle skirts and the juke box!  2008...1990...1980...1970...1960...1950!

                                                                                                 

In the 1950's, if you owned a professional home staging business, you  may have  come across homes like this with similar interiors!

 

 

Kitchens were filled with appliances and furniture pieces in an array of colors right out of a bowl of sherbet! (Pinks, pale greens,soft yellows) and on the contrast, bright red colors were also found and checkerboard floors were abound.  (This one shown in black and white).

 

 

 

You could have possibly gone out for a consultation in something similar to this full skirted dress.  Of course in a variety of colors and patterns so that you could have one for every day of the week!

 

 

 

 

 As you can see, this professional home stager, had a "Perfect Day",... probably out shopping for some more inventory and lunch with friends!  Now it's time to sit down at her IBM Electric Typewriter and type up a home staging proposal for her new client! 

Notice the gloves ladies...you certainly could not have left the house without those in the 1950's!

 

 

Here's a look at a staged bathroom of the 50's...and don't forget the washroom... every part of the house should be thoroughly cleaned and professionally staged in order to get that sale! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 You may have had similar items in your inventory for staging, these lightweight pieces would have been perfect for  any room in the house!

                                                                                                

A 1950's professional home stager, may have put a nickle in the juke box while having lunch with friends at her favorite diner!  Some of our biggest rock-n-roll icon's of the 50's were probably being played!

   Fats Domino

 

 

 

This home stager obviously used a lot more dishes on this table in the 50's than we would use in our stagings today!  

We can even find this retro color palette of brights making a come back and being sold in stores again today! 

 

 

Staging in the 1950's definitely would have been exciting!   I think this is one era I could see myself staging in,... I would have loved to rock-around-the-clock!

Fernando- The power of re-design, got to love it!

Ana- Oh well, I guess I will just have to imagine! :)

Melissa-I'm sure your kitchen was just lovely! Thanks for stopping by!

Kat- The fifties were the BEST!  It's a shame we don't have that safety factor in our world anymore.  I remember skating and biking all over town too...and trick-or-treating was always the BEST!

Cathy- Didn't I get that from your staging portfolio?

Russell- I guess your parents wanted everything just right before they brought you into this world!

Cheryl- Glad you stumbled across this post...you can stumble in anytime! (0:

Hello Michelle, these are such neat pictures. I love many of the items from older days - the colors are vibrant and offer a spark of life.  Nice chronological log. I got to check out your other series.

I remember those chrome and formica kitchen table sets... red or yellow, of course!  Oh the wonderful world of synthetic materials - how we embraced it then.

This is the exact recreation of the home me and my wife want to have. We have been planning on buying an older home for years and take the home back to its original time and just let everyone who visits enjoy their trip down memory lane.
