home: trend [ 60s ]
This season give your home a modern retro colourful pop of colour with the 60s trend. Stores are filling with midcentury silhouettes in furniture, great retro patterns in wallpaper, fabrics and cushions and those immediately indentifiable colours associated with the swinging decade of the 60s.
Use teals, mustards and burnt oranges but soften with fresh white or creams to balance the palette. Make angles curved and woods light and layer up block colours with pops of great wild pattern.
High street stores have plenty this season to work for this trend but it’s great to mix in the original pieces – hunt for vintage furniture – a statement dresser or sideboard, track down original samples of fabric to make cushions from and browse antique markets and fairs for ceramics and ornaments to enrich the look.
