1950’s Lifestyles!


Retro Home

The lifestyles of the 1950s was like no other time in America.
The economy was booming! And products were being created and produced at record rates. The 50’s brought on a dramatic change in music, and in fashion! Home decorating styles called for bright and clean colors!. Men and Women’s fashion were real classy and women looked fabulous! For more detailed information and tips of Women’s fashion from the 1950’s visit: Retro Dee’s Guild to the Best Era Ever! Men were dashing in their Fedora fur, or woven straw hats, that came in multi colors and were worn on a slight tilt angle.! And a great fitting suit to match. That’s the way it was at the time, Women wore dresses and Men wore suits!

The 1950’s stand out among the decades, with so much in way of new products like, TV sets were becoming the main source of entertainment other than radio programs.
Rock and Roll was new and hot and the Parents and Media did not look very kindly to the change! And it was also a time of big gas guzzling cars! But man what style they had from the manufacturers of the Chevy, Ford, Oldsmobile, Buick, and the more luxury autos, like the Cadillacs, Jaguars, Bentley’s, and more!

Furniture was designed to fit the times, classy in every way, and that great time period furniture is in style today! Kitchen sets were in vinyl, and cool looking chrome, with wonderful formica tops!  and shiny chrome small appliances like, coffee makers, toasters, mixers, and one for milk shakes! And air conditioning was becoming more popular in the 1950’s. Yes there’s no doubt about it, the 1950’s was the decade of change!

One thought on “1950’s Lifestyles!

  1. I love this entry! The furniture was truly adorable then… so difficult and pricey to find vintage furniture of the 50’s these days. Everything was so neat and pretty. 🙂 It was change but for the better, wish it could have stayed that way.
