There's no question that design inspired by the funky colors and general freedom of the 1960s is entirely on trend right now. The visualizer of this house, who goes by Plasterlina, has titled it "That '60s House" and it is easy to see where the name come from. Still, the clean lines and creative details would probably feel more at home the upscale Haight-Ashbury of today than they would at the original Woodstock, which is definitely a good thing since there is not enough Lysol in the world to make us want to return to the real 1960s
The open plan of the main living area is decidedly modern, with a narrow but stylish kitchen opening out into a sunny living room. The spidery light fixture that hangs overhead is both practical and a bit whimsical. Overall, the color palette stays mainly neutral, true to the natural spirit of the 60s, but a few pops of mustardy yellow and some vibrant greens from the indoor ‘herb’ garden is more than welcome. The pattern on the area rug is particularly inspiring with a bit of Southwest happening, while still managing to meld with the wood flooring.
The kitchen is a little narrow, but still has the comforts that any gourmet would require. From expansive counter space to fresh herbs and a sleek cooktop as well as a natural wood breakfast bar, its a cozy slice of this home.
While a home office wasn’t really a thing in the 60s, everyone needs that workspace today. Adding a modern egg chair might invoke a Bond villain a bit, but also ensure privacy .
