The1960’s Revival in Interior Design
In 2017 we have been noticing a small revival in the interior design world of elements straight from the 1960’s. Aspects such as color, pattern and even materials are being recycled in new and exciting ways, while still giving a strong nod to their 1960’s roots. Read below to gain more insight to the splash of color and design aspects that are making this era an inspiration to interior design Orlando clients.
Vibrant colors such as Citrus and Lime are making a bold comeback. During the 1960’s, interior design was centered around creating spaces that were flamboyant and bold. Color was shockingly bright and lively, and would be considered a bit “over the top” by today’s standards.
The influence behind these choices in color were greatly inspired by the “Pop Art” art movement of the time. As the saying goes, “Art influences life” and interior design is a perfect example of how this was translated.
During this time period, colors were not limited to a small few. Homes would display almost a kaleidoscope of colors in their design scheme. This is in stark contrast to contemporary designs which feature more muted color palettes and place an emphasis on simplicity and monochromatic schemes.
Similar to color usage of the era, prints were bold, impactful, and lively. We can see many of the leading designers in 2017 bringing this back into their displays through the use of large prints and color-blocked patterns. Paying homage to the 1960’s and 1970’s, interior decorators such as Angela Neel are finding that clients are taking into account the effects of colors in 2017. Clients now see how affects the mood of their interiors, and are beginning to separate away neutral color palettes of the past and experimenting more and adding more “pop” into their living spaces.
Materials and Furnishings
During the 1906’s furniture and sculptures mainly took inspiration from nature with organic shapes and lines. Where clean lines and symmetry was very much in style not too long ago, now we are seeing tables, chair, and sculptures with free-flowing shapes being mixed into the design elements of a room to give it interest.
