Period Style

There are some colour combinations that epitomize specific periods in history.

This often came about due to availability. It could have been down to: expense of materials, pigments, technology, or simply affected by specific design and/or fads of the time.

In this section there are some tips and colours to help you 'get the look’.


Note:- To help get the look, try scouring charity or junk shops, car boot sales or school fairs etc. Keep in mind, the theme you are hoping to achieve; that way you won’t miss any much needed items when they turn up. Often it is the little accessories and details which help authenticate any chosen scheme.

  • Please be aware that colours are only representations and should not be taken as completely accurate. Many factors in reproduction can and will alter their appearance. These should be taken as rough guidelines only.
