1960s Paint

These mid-20th century paint colours are a reaction against the austerity of the period following World War II. Modern methods of pigmentation led to a revolution in the colours used for interiors. Popular colours in the 1960s, such as Carmine, Trumpet and Brighton led the way, alongside the iconic Hicks' Blue from David Hicks, one of the most important designers of the 60s and 70s. Use these colours and muted related whites to create a contemporary mid-twentieth century scheme.

The era of freedom, booming economic growth and Pop spawned a dramatic shift in interior decoration style encapsulating the moment – examples include Carmine, Brighton, and Dorchester Pink.
