A Modern Upgrade
We called our kitchen 'the time warp' because it looked like it hadn't been touched since the 1960s," says homeowner and Southern Living
Executive Editor Jessica Thuston. "The matching yellow laminate floors, cabinets, and countertops—I have a feeling it was
pretty great back in its day." However, fast-forward 50 years and this space was in major need of an update. "We loved the
size and basic layout, but everything else had to go," Jessica says. Tour how she gave this relic some modern-day appeal.
