Oh, you have to love this post brought to you from Retro Renovation! Take a trip in time with more kitchen and bath trends from 1968. Blues and greens were hot then and they are still hot now. The shades of blue and green have changed a bit, and the names have changed as well. But as trends come and go, contact paper on appliances is a trend I hope never to see again.
Blue and green accents in the kitchen. Circa 1968.
Remember when contact paper was the material of choice to line cupboard shelves? Contact paper on appliances? Ugh.
Homeowners still love their blue.
Powder Blue, circa 2008.
Lapis Blue, circa 2008.
Not to mention Thermador Blue knobs on their ranges.
Or we keep it blue concealed behind the oven door.
And when was there a time when we did not love green?
Avocado Green, circa 1969.
We loved our green, even in paneling.
Or this Apple Martini Green from Caesarstone, circa 2006.
Wasabi Green, Circa 2008
As we see, muted greens and vibrant greens are still popular today.
This door shown in Tea Green, by Durasupreme, circa 2009.
A variation from the old avocado green we saw from 1969.
Or my favorite, updated version of blue and green.
A much more subdued, almost muted blue shown in
Lagos Blue by Caesarstone with a lemon green wall accent color. Circa 2008.
