"The bar ... is tucked between family room and kitchen, concealed by sliding doors. An ice-maker in lower cupboard adds convenience."

This was essentially a clever use of a tiny area just to the right as you came in the side entrance. Notice the second entry way to the family room at right.

Floorplan featuring Laundry Room

 

"Even the laundry room at right is handsomely paneled in laminate and enclosed by acrylic sliding doors that resemble pretty screens. A sunny area at the front of this space makes sorting, folding and ironing a pleasure rather than a chore."

Yes, that looks like Harvest Gold on that washer and dryer. I'm not sure how well the folding doors would hold up in this kind of a high use area. The sink next to the washer indicates there are still things that have to be soaked or washed by hand in 1964. In the future, enzyme based stain removers will come in squeeze bottles, washing machines will have hand-washable/extra-delicate settings, and there won't be much demand for an ironing area no matter how sunny or pleasant.
