Karlene Dachenhausen requested a black & white mix of my Let's Go Retro! Walls & Floors, and I'm happy to oblige! I don't know why I didn't think of it before. Black and white tile is perfectly suited to the era, and was a popular choice for homeowners.

I made a white set and black set of tile walls, with four linoleum floors that will match either set. I didn't make painted walls to match, but matched the black tiles to the black paint in the game ("Black is the New Black") and the white painted portions of the walls to the "Paste Paint." That way you have the option of using painted walls that match.

I had no idea the paste paint was so blue. Thankfully, it looks white in the game.

I thought while I was at it, I'd add a few more colors taken from the 1950s paint chip brochures I found on the web: Buttercup, Camel, Seafoam, and Wedgewood. I matched them with paints and the same four linoleum floors as in the previous set.

I saw a lot of camel-colored tile growing up (sometimes called Camel Tan). All the houses on our suburban street had it in their bathrooms. It was matched with almond-colored fixtures (a creamy whitish tan). I saw a lot of wedgewood too, though not in tile. It was a popular paint color.

The walls and floors can be found where you'd expect them to be in the game. The price for each is §0.

Enjoy!
