Everybody that lived in the 60's knows that you had avocado green shag carpet in the house with the accompanying avocado green appliances.  Just ask Elvis.  If he were still around, that is.

It's just a matter of perspective. It's not so bad.

I can't look at that without hearing the sound of Fred Flintstone running in my head.

For all of you talking about how '60s this is, this photo was a 1956 national advertisement for Excelon Tile by Armstrong and was included in the "Armstrong book of interior decoration (1962)". Then again people who lived in '60s basements often had to put up with mistakes from the '50s.

camelclub, I think this would be more like it! Although the colors would clash with all that red!

Jeez, TFI is from a 1956 ad for floor tile. Avocado Green and Harvest Gold were popular from the very late '60s to '80. Only somebody who was color blind would combine a primary/pastel color scheme with "earth tones".
 A Brief History of Kitchen Appliance Color Choices

While white appliances were the only choices initially, by the 1950s colors such as Stratford Yellow, Sherwood Green, Turquoise Green, Cadet Blue, Woodtone Brown, Petal Pink and Canary Yellow offered homemakers exciting new ways to coordinate their kitchens. Cadet Blue and Woodtone Brown proved to be unpopular and were discontinued in less than 10 years as were several of the other colors.

By 1960 a few new shades had been added and almost as quickly cancelled including an attempt at a charcoal gray. Standard yellow, pink and turquoise were the only real survivors of this color craze. A new color, Coppertone became a popular choice until the 1980s. In fact, Coppertone and turquoise were the two favorite appliance colors, after white, for several years.

As the later 60's approached, turquoise was replaced by avocado and a Harvest Gold shade. These became the new stars for the remainder of the 60's, the 70's and the early 80's. Bright Poppy Red made a short appearance in the 70's but as the decade closed New Naturals had become more popular. Harvest Wheat, Onyx Black, Coffee, Fresh Avocado and Almond were introduced with Almond and Harvest Gold definitely taking the lead. The 80's saw Coppertone and Avocado fade away.

Thanks George. I haven't learned the 'art' of photoshopping.
