The Vintage Home #10
Wow. My brain can barely handle this; it's hard to say which startles me the most. Is it the mirrored Rubik's Cube end table? Or maybe its the overbearing level of blue in the room.... or perhaps the odd way tiny flower pots are hung on a lattice fence? Who knows - but it's interesting to look at. You've got to hand it to designers in the seventies - they weren't shy about experimenting. Perhaps all that recreational drug use gave them the courage.
Anyway, take a few minutes and have a look at a few other bold interiors from this 1974 issue of Woman's Day magazine.
I'm okay with this; however, the metallic lamp behind the couch looks like someone is storing their gas furnace exhaust vent in the living room. The metal floor decoration looks like alien head-wear.
So chaotically put together, it looks like a booth at a flea market. The books stuffed in a pocket on the pillow chair is a nice touch. That's an Omaha phone book BTW and the game on the shelf is Score Four. I can't make out the book titles though.
I'd also like to add that the
rug is the perfect color to hide all those bong water stains.
The entire wall and floor seems to be covered in small reflective red squares. Can you imagine the tension headaches you'd get living like this? The yellow frame apparently holds a picture of the void. That's deep, man.
What kind of room is this? Is this an office? There's a wine rack, a shag throw rug, some trippy wall art, and of course the DOOR! DOOR! DOOR! DOOR!
