In the 60s and 70s, life was different, and so were our houses. Do you remember the orange flowered wallpaper and groovy furniture?

Laminate was very popular, as were pops of colour. The 60s and 70s really marked a changed in decor and even now families embrace these retro influences.

Let’s have a look back tonight at these awesome kitchens of the past…

Tell us, what colour was your kitchen?

  1. Helen Petty

    I moved into a Navy home in the early 80’s, about three shades of green, two of orange and a bit of purple in the kitchen just for fun. Sickening is too polite a description.

  2. Ruth Hourigan

    I’m in a 50 year old govt house. Except for the colour, this is pretty much what my current kitchen looks like. LOL

    • Victoria Alexandra D

      In the early 80’s we bought a house off the plan …. kitchen red with black benches . Bathrooms royal blue and red. OMG what was I thinking , but hey that was the fashion 🙁

  3. Doug Lambert

    Disgusting! Cars were even painted that colour. Was it called, ming blue or something like that?

  4. Jennifer Payn

    No our interior was not bright& gawdy-mb similar style/outlay.
