The folks over at Modern Capital posted a great link on their Facebook page today. Paint company California Paints have a feature on their website where they showcase various paint colors (both interior and exterior) according to time period in their 20th Century Colors of America.
If you head down to the 1940s to the 1960s you’ll find colors for, our favorite, mid-century modern!
Here’s what they had to say:
The post-World War II housing boom and the popularization of modern architecture brought bold colors in deep tones into popularity once again. Earth tones dominated exteriors, while interiors featured sophisticated, modulated neutral shades like bone, gray-beige, pearl gray, and taupe alongside saturated accents in fuchsia, teal, evergreen, charcoal, and chocolate with strong contrasts in chartreuse, tangerine, gold, and sulfur yellow.
Check out the colors below and some of the stories behind those individual colors.
