Wahoo! Retro time!

Posted on Mon, 17 Sep 2007 by midcenturyjo


This week’s retro treats are from Better Homes Decorating Ideas, Ruth Quatermaine, Meridith Publishing Company, 1967. My scanner has been running hot. True 60s inspiration or desperation. Love it or hate here’s your retro therapy.

It’s my favourite time of the week, retro time!! This week’s amazing pictures are scanned from The Complete Book of Decorating. An Illustrated Guide to Designing Your Home, Corinne Benicka, Lansdowne Press, Sydney, 1980. And before someone comments they are smoking in that conversation pit. Bad people but the cushions are divine!

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!!!!!
