Cupboard space equal to that in many average homes is built into Mrs. Johnson's 7-foot, 10-inch by 4-foot, 10-inch kitchen. inches by 7 feet 10 inches and is equipped with u full- sized r e f r i g e r a t o r , cupboards enough for everything needed in a kitchen, a modern, attractive sink with for- mica top, and shelves for appliances. A highly ornamental and practical formica-top bar separates the kitchen from the living room, with two decorative bar stools placed on the living room side. The bathroom would fit into the decor of any modern home. The original tile still · ornaments the wall around the bath tub, but the wash basin is now a built-in unit with an attractive silver- speckled black top. A black, hand-painted shower curtain adds a touch of luxury to the room. Closet space, so often a problem even in large homes, is an o u t s t a n d i n g f pain re of Mrs. Johnson's apartment. Not only is the closet large, but every square inch of space has been utilized to the fullest extent. One long rod for clothes stretches across the length of the closet, with a second rod placed above it near the ceiling for .shorter articles of wearing apparel such as jackets, blouses and full slips. AT ONE SIDE of the closet a large chest of drawers has been pushed against the wall; after the fashion of a low, built-in unit. Legs of the chest were removed in order to afford more room for shelves above. C a r e f u l l y '..spaced shelves provide storage; room for hats, purses and the like. A large round table with folding legs takes up little room when stored on one side of the spacious closet which is really a tiny room in itself. There is a place for everything in this small but perfect apartment, and, perhaps out of necessity, everything is always in its place. Enjoyable living in miniature was achieved with an eye to the practical and f u n c t i o n a l as well as the neat and attractive. INTERIOR DESIGNERS 643 W. Broadway Long Beach, Calif.
