Sixties interior design began as an evolution of the modern and mid-century trend. Bolder and more daring than the decade before it, sixties home décor is fun, frivolous, and adds personality to any home.
One of the most striking features of sixties home décor is bold and geometric prints. Used in wallpaper to make a huge impact, but also in soft furnishings, think of Orla Kiely-style prints in pastels, neons, brights, and even muted tones.
Sixties-style décor is also a showcase of fun, unusual, and quirky furniture. From larger pieces like sofas and bookcases to smaller decorative items like lamps, expect a combination of wood and metal, in a variation of smooth curved and straight lines to create unusual shapes.
Laminate panels popular in warm, wooden tones to make the room feel more homely and welcoming, but laminate is a modern and inexpensive equivalent to real wood panelling.
