Off the shelf retro

Posted on Tue, 25 May 2010 by midcenturyjo

I’m still flipping through the pages of Storage, A House and Garden Book, Melinda Davis, Pantheon Books, New York, 1978. Fab homes and fab ideas. I’d move right in to any of them. OK I lie. I just can’t do primary colours. Never could. So no red chairs and green walls and what I think is the world’s largest stack of Componibili storage units. I will however spend tonight dreaming of the Shaker room. Sigh.

Wow! I can’t believe that these interiors are actually from the seventees! To me, these spaces seem more contemporary than retro. The only thing that gives it away is the old Tv sets and other electronics in the shots. I especially like the first and third shot, I could absolutely live there!

WoW, the 70s?….these look so now without a doubt!

1970’s retro! Nice – if you like the era pieces – although there are spaces that look quite mod! The green walls and red chairs are a bit much but I would love to design for a client!

I love these, especially that third picture. I am completely obsessed with big bookshelves–they just say "home" to me.

Those red and yellow chairs are so now.
