Groovy Wall Graphics, 1976

wall stripes 70s

The black and whites are from 1976. The last photo is from a contemporary, retro-ized apartment in Singapore. My dad painted something almost exactly like those stripes, right down to the color scheme, in the first place I remember living, a tiny condo in the San Gabriel Valley.

    Dark brown, orange, and yellow. What was it about the 70’s that those colors were its anthem?

    Very good question. And was there another decade that had its own colors?

    I know the ’80s is totally known for pastels and its day-glo stuff. I remember Westwood in ’84, geez. You’d practically go deaf from the hot orange, pink and green clothes and accessories shouting from the shop window mannequins.
