Interior Designs Through The Ages - Part 1 - The 60's
The sixties flower passion introduced a free-love theme into interior design that is now incorporated into warm pastel colors and floral designs. The trends also noted sleek straight-line furnishings and furniture as well as bright citrus colors.
One of the main contributions that the sixties gave interior design is the use of feature walls, that is, walls that have bright striking patterns or designs that catch your eye. Most times there was one main feature wall within a room.
Other fun contributions from this special decade were colorful wall art and prints like the famous Andy Warhol or film posters, as well as bright and eccentric kitchen appliances as entertaining in ones’ home because much less formal than it had been in years past.
It was a fun time to be alive - and it brought us colorful and interesting design elements - many of which - have stuck around through the decades.
