A popular style of the 1970s was a reinterpretation of colonial interiors, which was consistent with a new style of architecture practised by architects such as Roger Walker. In a reaction to modernist style it incorporated ‘rustic’ elements such as exposed brick, bright colours and 19th-century references such as the pot belly stove and leadlight lampshade. These are seen in the Wellington house of the Haimes family, built in the mid-1970s.
