Living in the 70s

Lisa, a loyal lurker from Canberra, Australia sent me the link to this 70's time capsule. What do you think? Is this the home of a little old groover hanging on to the past or is it the lair of a hard core retro buff? Either way it is an amazing trip back in time. Love it all!!!!!


Gotta love cranberry velvet

OK, maybe some of you don't care for cranberry velvet but when I saw this couch on Craigslist I had to have it. My boyfriend and his friend picked it up for me tonight. (Thanks guys!) It was advertised as a Bauhaus sofa but that term seems to be used so loosely I figured that meant the style was Bauhaus. Turns out it is actually made by Bauhaus because it's printed all over the fabric under the seat cushions. I really have no idea what that means - if the $80 my boyfriend paid for this was a steal of the century or not. If anyone out there knows any details of Bauhaus furniture, please share...I'm very curious. (P.S. My green wall sadly will have to go.)


Joe Nye

Joe Nye is an interior decorator from Los Angeles who has a knack for mixing antique furniture with fresh modern fabrics. His love for colour is evident in his designs and results in a traditional style that is warm and livable. Not stuffy or prim and proper at all.
