The 50s are known for the use of pastels in the the home, in fashion, and even automobiles of the time period! However, after doing some research "There were three major color trends in the 50s; pastel, modern and Scandinavian. Pastel colors that were particularly popular were pink, turquoise, mint green, pale yellow and blue. Modern colors were clean and bright and included vibrant yellow, electric blue, orange, red, black and white.The desired result with a modern color scheme was to create a marked contrast between colors.The Scandinavian color scheme was sophisticated and heavily influenced by nature. The Scandinavian color palette included shades of brown, cream, gray and green. For the first time ever in the ’50s, paint colors were available in any possible hue. Black, white and red as a color scheme was huge! Turquoise was extremely popular." Oh yes, gimme anything in the turquoise!
