Harmony House: 1940-1968
In 1940, Sears introduced the Harmony House brand as an interior-decorating scheme that used four basic colours that could be coordinated with each other. (The year before, Sears catalogs featured "Charm House," a similar program.) Customers were encouraged to use a colour wheel that was supplied in the catalog for coordinating colours. Harmonizing colours had long been a problem for the company. For example, rose-coloured draperies made by one source might clash with a rose rug produced by another manufacturer. Each factory used its own colours, and the clashes that resulted were impeding the company's sales of home furnishings. In response to customer demand, Sears eventually expanded Harmony House's palette to include 18 colours that they considered to be the most attractive to customers. Each colour came in light, medium, and dark shades. Harmony House colours were: Tuscan Rose and Wine, Valley Rose, Federal Gold, Cherry Pink and Red, Jubilee Peach, Spice Beige and Brown, Colonial Blue, Sage Green, Aquamarine, Chartreuse, Dawn Gray, Mint Green, Pacific Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Parchment Ivory, Beige, and Brown, Victorian Pink, Rose, Red and Wine, and Malibu Peach, Coral and Rust.
