More from the 80s!


Oh no I had to do it again. Drag up images from the decade that style forgot. Just look though. Not everything was foul! Images scanned from The Complete Home Decorator, Caroline Clifton-Mogg et al, Conran Octopus, London, 1985. Click to supersize the retro experience.

I don't know about anyone else but the images in my head of decor in 1985 were WAY WORSE....these are all really great spaces! I LOVE that little bed nook...ALOT.

I just recently got a whole bunch of Conran/Octopus books from the 80's and 90's out of our library. There were some rooms that were dated, but overall, the Conran books are very versatile and almost of a classic style which is why I love Terence Conran to this day and all the Conran publications. Very cool pics.

Oooh, those are my Cesca chairs except that I have them in black (see second row, photo on right). And that flower bedding looks terribly familiar.

Once I read what cardboard and k_b commented about the flower bedding, I took a second look. I recognized that pattern. It was on the wallpaper in my step-sister's bedroom.

I'm now wondering if it was particularly iconic of the 1980s like how the Cabbage Patch dolls are so 1980s.
