Our final color trend for the week is a look back over our shoulder to the colors and design ideas of the 1950's through the 1970's. From the muted dusty colors found in old photographs to the technicolor tones on TV, these homes bring the past into the present. To get this look for yourself, check out our Valspar paint color picks below.

Randy's dusty rose couch and bright lemon and chartreuse accents are a pleasant throwback to an older time. Try your hand at it with Valspar's Sienna Dust 1007-3A and Pineapple Mousee 3007-3C.



The icy, vintage colors in Marie Gael's home are reminiscent of old technicolor movies. You can replicate the look with Valspar's Sea Treasure 6002-9C and and Citrus Tickle 6008-9C.





Sally's cheery stripes make use of not one, but six retro colors that work amazingly well together. You can get started with Valspar's Pink Flutter 1005-2A and Greenway 6005-10C.





Sandy's home is self-described as "happy Danish modern clown colors," and we see exactly what she means! If this is your kind of look, get it with Valspar's Celery 6007-10A and Ocean Sigh 5002-10A.





Tracy's pastel living room is another great example of mixing a vintage color palette and turning it into something fresh and modern. Start with Valspar's Island Orange 2010-2 and Lush Meadow 6005-C.
