Trends from the 70's...

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Raycross Interiors, we’re going to be looking back at the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom trends throughout the decades. Raycross was founded in 1976 so we’re starting in the 70’s, looking at the good, the bad and the ugly. Which ones do you remember and which would you never want to come back into fashion?

As many of you will remember, avocado green and harvest gold dominated kitchens across the country in the 70’s. From fridges to ovens and even wallpaper, this bizarre colour scheme sometimes made its way into bathrooms too in the way of sinks, baths and toilets…

Graphic flooring and lino in bright geometric patterns, and designs in bold colours such as lemon yellow and burnt orange were also popular. Lino floors were sturdy enough to last through the decade and there’s a chance there’s still some hiding on kitchen floors around the UK.

Moving on from patterned floors to patterned walls, rooms were often floor to ceiling in florals. Patterns swept across the nation covering wallpapers, bedspreads and furniture in bold and bright patterns, from paisleys to blossoms…

And finally, if you didn’t come across a funny shaped lamp standing tall next to a brightly patterned sofa on top of a shaggy carpet or rug, were you really living in the 70’s? To see all these top trends from the 70’s, take a look on our Pinterest. https://uk.pinterest.com/RaycrossDesign/70s-trends-raycross-interiors-40th-anniversary/
