The dining room has a strong Danish influence. The dining table set and credenza were purchased atDanish Modern Noho. The rug, designed to look like a 1960s rya, was created from shag carpeting at S & J Biren floor coverings in Los Angeles. The gray armchair is part of a pair purchased on Craigslist “because they reminded me of chairs I had seen on ‘Bewitched,’” Didul said.
The kitchen has rich blue and blazing coral cabinets exhibiting “happiness and hopefulness,” Didul said. “The pastels of the 1950s are giving way to brighter and earthier tones.” She spotted the brown 1964 Frigidaire in a vintage copy of the Los Angeles Times Home Magazine. “It’s my favorite appliance in the whole show.”
Custom-built kitchen cabinets have a handy pass-through window to the dining room, a built-in cook top and a revolving spice rack, far left, purchased on Etsy. Didul shopped for glasses, cookware and kitchen accessories at the antique malls in Orange and Pomona, and the Pasadena Antique Center and Annex and Novotny’s Antique Gallery in Pasadena.
