Colour had a strong presence in 50s interior design! A variety of bold hues and patterns were just what people needed after a long and difficult war. Smaller, sunnier and brighter homes were built and given facelifts through the addition of bright colours such as corals, blues, greens and yellows. The new era ushered in a more positive approach – the living room aesthetic, the tiles of bathrooms – even kitchen the refrigerators were sought after in bright, fun colours!
