I forgot ….

… or maybe you all forgot to remind me. “Jo where are the retro posts?” It’s been weeks and weeks since I creaked open a vintage home decor book, swatted away the moths and fired up the scanner. Today’s pictures have no particular theme and you’ll have to guess which ones are retrolicious and which ones are shocking. Shouldn’t be too hard. Images scanned from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 1, Meredith Corporation, New York, 1971. Now just don’t let me forget again!

oh that brown bedroom is giving me the creeps, how could anyone possibly sleep there? The bottom pic is hilarious, its like a trick picture, to me the bench looks like its been flipped, when did we favour back cushions over bottom cushions ??!!

Folder of Ideas, I was thinking the same thing about that bench. What a hoot! Funny how I don't particularly like any of these rooms but upon clsser inspection, there's alot of really great pieces I'd totally have in my home.
