Light colors were standard in most parts of homes.  But dark colors & wood paneling in family rooms created a warm cozy feel as seen at this 1965 Phoenix home.

    vintage homes are becoming more and more popular now. I don’t like the carpets - however, I really like the lakeside mural and the wrought ironwork partition.

    I like 60s style. I’m currently looking at houses and they are all EXACTLY the same. They look as though there is no money for furnishings!!!
    Empty rooms and moss green and khaki colored walls are as boring as white.

    Notice that the curtains are attached close to the ceiling and the furniture is place against the wall.

    I would remove the wrought iron ‘divider’ and use them as headboards for a little girls room painted in her favorite color.

    I love the wrought iron partition and the low couches! I am a native phoenician and grew up in the 60’s. It was a magical time! I am so nostalgic for that time period!

    I love the low couches with the simple lines in the first photo. Even the fabric has a nice print. Though I don’t like carpets of any color, the bright grassy green of the carpet in the same photo was rather a pleasant and unusual shade. I have never liked wall paneling, and it’s illegal in parts of Canada because it’s a fire hazard. I love the stereo console and the city scapes.
