I wonder if kids who grew up with rooms this insanely busy turned into hyperactive nutcase adults. It’s making me a little nutty just looking at these.

Makes you long for wood paneling accented with orange and yellow like that bottom photo. Oh yeah.

Flower power rules! Takes me back to my childhood bedroom. You young ones don’t know what you missed 🙂
