What do we want?

More retro! Once again the scans are from Woman's Day All Colour Book of Home Decorating & Design, Edited by Babette Hayes, Octopus Australia, 1977. Some interesting space saving solutions here as well as some that are just "interesting" including ruched headboards and bathroom carpet. I wonder why we stopped doing those last two? Enjoy!

I love the black/white bathroom - except I'm starting to think that is carpet not tile. EEEWWW. And I'm really not sure what to make of the photo to the left of it. (?????)

Yes Kim it is carpet and as you say "EEEWWW". Could never understand that trend. The one to the left of it is of kitchen cabinets painted with the most over the top picnic food.

About the "most over the top picnic food" theme painted on the kitchen cabinets, I am curious to know what is the name of this style of painting or art. Do you know?

I've always found myself curious about it.
