As the sun slowly sets over this last chapter of The Apartment Book, by the editors of Apartment Life magazine, Meredith Corporation, 1980 we bid farewell to perms and platforms, chunky sofas and chunky food props. The 70s are slowly morphing into the 80s and if we didn’t know better we’d be predicting back in the day the final domination of the planet by house plants. Oh how I love this first picture. A market garden in old tins (including if you look closely Pepsi). I’m speechless as to why and you’d be too if you realised that out of “shot” (or scan in this case… it couldn’t all fit on the scanner bed) is a bedroom. A market garden in recycled cans bedroom. Only in the 70s!
