[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #DC943C;”] T [/dropcap]his week from Mum’s Drawer we have extracted an attractive brochure detailing how to brighten your home with Dulux paints.

More than 50 years after this pamphlet was printed, the retro-styling of the homes is very much back in vogue.

It is a little hard to read in this image, but the range of colours suggested for the lounge included nasturtium (ceiling), parchment (walls) and golf brown (walls).

Suggestions for the adult bedrooms – including those with two single beds – ranged from Nile green or pumpkin to Cloud pink and pewter.
