Let me tell you WHY you should use colours of the 1950's when you decorate.
The SOFT gentle colours of the 1950's recall a different age. An age where Mum did lots of baking and served her family large meals on their cheerful Formica table. When I step into a kitchen or cafe done up in these ice cream colours I just go aaaawwwww. It sends me mushy. I remember my Nana and how her kitchen used to smell. Delicious home baking using REAL butter and cups of sugar. No concern then about being healthy, just sweet and tasty and golden brown goodness.
In the below link you can view authentic 1950's paint colours so you can make your 1950's project as realistic as possible.
The next link is for my New Zealand readers so that they can source the kind of paint colours they are after.
We have the same yummy pink and mint in our ceramic knob range as well as the all time favourite of cream. Applying these shades to your furniture and accessorising with our knobs will ensure a Fifties feel.
Alternatively use them on your kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Delicious!
