Colour Trends | 6th August 2014
The glitz and glamour of the 1920s and 30s came to an abrupt halt with the outbreak of war in 1939. The following decade saw decorating styles take on a more sentimental tone with traditional furniture, floral upholstery and prudent colours. Homes were small and practical and clutter was kept to a minimum, by a generation that was grateful for what they had.
