Inspired by the 70's design era of Yellow I have chosen Marigold by Behr for Today's Colour Story. Its that 'sunshiney' happy colour of the 70's home design scene .
On our colour wheel, the Pure hue is Yellow, adding tint white, Hue green, secondary colour orange, saturation is strong/dark giving us that golden colour. This formula equals stunning.
Just how did we use this colour in our design's of the 70's.......here is the inspiring Throwback!
In reflection when looking at some of these lines in designs of the 70's we can see how we are still using them today. Look again at the sofa, we still gravitate to this form but we have refocused on our textile choices, incorporating textured linens and bamboo.
Today we are again looking at using metals in design, from industrial to modern contemporary styles with the infusion of brass and copper from lighting to hardware. Marigold is a vibrant colour that we can use in many aspects of design and in our space decor. I notice this colour in decor accents of glass and sculpture. So as we look back at design eras, notice how the fashion & textiles harmonize into interior design. Recently we seen this harmony played out in glam textile and interior designs revival in the movie,
But no matter what, we are all still seeking that 'sunshiney' feeling like then today.
