Despite all the hubbub saying otherwise, the MidCentury era aesthetic is still alive and well here in Southern California. But while it's easy to get those Knoll chairs, Noguchi lamp, and matching accessories to create your own slice of MCM flashback heaven, getting the interior paint colour era-authentic isn't as easy.

Lo and behold, the retro-tastic folks at Populuxe Books have posted some wonderful scans from a 1958 DuPont and Sherwin Williams paint catalog that showcases a myriad of era true paint swatches that might inspire you to take the roller and brush to the walls in the near future.
