vintage image of the day, 1963 colors, May 2, 12

In September, 1962 House and Garden put out it's color forecast for 1963.  There was an accompanying article with the color schemes used in some fab rooms.

This one is called Wintergreen. The first page of the article has all the color predictions.

I thought it looked familiar and I searched the color predictions for 2013 and yep, next years colors are very similar.

Many are dead on...

This text was the facing page of the Wintergreen room.

Love the colors! How funny that they're so back for 2013.

I know! Isn't it funny how everything comes back in style?

I love the porcelain stove, Saarinen table, and Bertoia chairs in the first picture! We painted the kitchen in our 1965 hirise apartment a very similar green, looked great!
