Designers

The 1970’s Colours is a collection made up of 16 colors as well as a gradient of 8 “Pure Greys”.‎ This new range is the follow up of Patrick Baty’s work on the 50s and the 60s.‎
These seven colors are pure inventiontions of the 60s and 70s.‎ They bear witness to the influence of the great designer David HICKS in the field of decorating over these two decades.‎

The 1970’s Colours Collection - 24 tints

This British designer radically changed the way people decorated by swaping chinz and flowery motifs for geometrical patterns – inspired by “The grammar of Ornament” by Owen Jones – blended with a strong sense of color.‎ He was an overnight success.‎ The shades are Burnt Orange, Cola Colour, Green Gage, Purple Ink, Jewel Blue and Damson.‎ These colors are emblematic of his work and are staged in his book “On Decoration”.‎

The shade Helena R comes from some of the work he did for the famous Rubenstein cosmetic company.‎ The 9 other shades are also taken from the 1955 BS 2660 range which was not replaced before 1972.‎ They were the most popular colors in the 60s and 70s of the whole chart.‎ In fact, these colors were created to introduce more soothing neutral colors into decorating.‎ There are many examples of these types of colors scattered in a good many color fans from these decades.‎
