Step back into the 50s with this time capsule home

You know when you see a classic pink Cadillac in the driveway that you’re in for a blast from the past. 

A unique house has gone up for sale in Dallas that’s making buyers feel like they’ve stepped back into a 1950s time capsule every time they attend an open.

The home features a pine kitchen, red leather features, plenty of bench stools and retro outdoor furniture.

And if the decor doesn’t give away the era enough, a sign in the kitchen reads ‘lost in the ’50s’ to remind you which decade you’ve been transported to.


The new mid-century modern interior of the 1951-built house was designed by renowned architect, Gordon Nichols.

The home Nichols named the Smith House, follows a tasteful ‘block colour’ theme with yellows, greens, blues, reds, purples and oranges spilling throughout the property.

The kitchen displays its original cabinetry, vintage pink appliances, and features a giant decorative hand beater hanging over the kitchen sink.

Outdoors the property boasts an in-ground swimming pool and deck.

All main living areas and bedrooms open onto the outdoor verandah and have views of the pool. Picture:
