50 years of interiors

Times and fashions change over 50 years but the fundamentals always stay the same, functionality of a kitchen and how the family use it.

1960 - 1969

RETRO MODERN

The swinging sixties, the groovy era. Colour was nothing to be afraid of and people handpicked the best of past designs to create a unique blend of Victorian, Edwardian, 1920s and art nouveau arrangements.

1970 - 1979

DARING DESIGNS

The 1970s made earthly tones beautiful, but you didn’t live in the 70s if you didn’t have brave, statement wallpaper.

1980 - 1989

BIG BOLD AND LOUD COLOURS

The 1980s went OTT on matching, open plan kitchens were born for family living and red and black were the colours to choose.

1990 - 1999

FAMILY KITCHENS

Kitchens in the 1990s were simpler and more unobtrusive than the 80s. They were easier on the eye, more welcoming and therefore the driver behind the modern-day kitchen being a family living space.

DIGITAL INTERIOR

The 2000s were all about nautical home décor and feature walls. When we entered the 2010s, everyone went crazy for grey, quartz and sleek, modern kitchens.

RETRO MODERN

The swinging sixties, the groovy era. Colour was nothing to be afraid of and people handpicked the best of past designs to create a unique blend of Victorian, Edwardian, 1920s and art nouveau arrangements.

1960s kitchens were elegant but versatile, functional and easy to maintain.

1970 - 1979

DARING DESIGNS

The 1970s made earthly tones beautiful, but you didn’t live in the 70s if you didn’t have brave, statement wallpaper.

The era is often, harshly, criticised for being tacky or garish. But combine bold textures, strong colours and multiple patterns and shapes and you get a century of interior artistry.

1980 - 1989

BIG BOLD AND LOUD COLOURS

The 1980s went OTT on matching, open plan kitchens were born for family living and red and black were the colours to choose.

The 80s adopted an American Gigolo style, modern with clean-lined furniture and sleek décor. Glossy cabinets were a staple in high-design urban kitchens and added colour to minimalist spaces.

What happens next in interior design will be driven by one thing, social media. Pinterest and Instagram allow us to search, save and share our favourite designs, and influence what the next 50 years of interior is going to look like.
