rAs a kid in the70s, I have an appreciation for the music, the clothes and yes, even the decor of the era. Granted, you won't spot me wearing a polyester outfit anytime soon, but I loved the unique style of the era, especially the colors used in decorating. I can remember my parents home had wall to wall orange shag carpeting, and I thought it was the greatest thing ever! As a matter of fact, many things were orange in our home...from the orange in our sofa and pillows, to the curtains and accessories. Orange was king back then! I still embrace the orange in my home today, but with more of a vintage modern with a splash of Ikea mixed in. On a recent post in the Apartment Therapy blog, they were stating that orange was making a comeback as a popular color to use in the home....I didn't realize that it ever went away as a popular color. If you look in many decorating catalogs such as Blu Dot and CB2, you will see that orange is alive and well, and still quite popular. Below are some vintage photos of my parent's and grandparent's house from the 70s and 80s. Enjoy the retro stylin'!
