When thinking about home interiors, like me, you might cringe at the memory of your childhood home. The best version of our family home was new green carpet and a black high-backed vinyl lounge with orange nylon-cushioned seating. My mother was proud of her modern choices and teamed up the “mod look” with a teak extender dining table and a sliding-door settee.The bright green kitchen cupboards and red laminex kitchen table and chairs were all part of the ‘70’s look.
When I married and we furnished our home in the ‘80’s, the colour palette revolved around peaches, apricots, salmon and mission brown. Pine furniture was affordable and popular. Modular lounges were just the thing and vertical blinds were a new innovation in widow coverings.
We displayed our good crockery in open shelves on the country style sideboard. And the VCR, and stereo equipment and speakers were proud pieces of the loungeroom furniture.I still love a busy living space, full of things that remind me of family and our full and crazy lives. But I realise that this isn’t the look of today. These days home interiors reflect minimalist design. Design that meets the needs of our changing lifestyles. Everything is white and grey. Gallery-sized artworks grace the stark walls. Large mirrors and pendant lighting are popular. Floor areas are tiled or polished concrete, sleek and clean. I do see the benefits of this style of living. Old houses full of knick-knacks are dusty and hard to clean and very few of us have time to spend vacuuming and dusting every day. What huge changes we have seen in interior design in one lifetime. Makes you wonder where to next!
