Colorful 70's Interiors

Rooms from the 70's today - and let's start with my favorite - "Supergraphics" on your wall, from an advertisement for Lucite Paint. Nice chair!

And would you look what I found -the same chair again, this time in an ad for Eureka vacuum cleaners - complete with a cat, this time:

A cool living room - we need all the "cool" we can get, with this summer heat:

A rec room for a family, complete with a 20 foot bean bag sofa, and flooring from Armstrong:

An orange kitchen, also courtesy of Armstrong flooring:

A living room from 1974. Let's nix that end table in the foreground, shall we? It doesn't look right at all. And I want pillows with more punch, too::

Let's call this one "Birds On A Wall". In a bedroom. With inflatable furniture. That's all I'm saying:

I'm outta here.

Must be why my favorite colors back in the day were yellow and orange, it was quite popular then. Love the birds on the wall!!!!

Wow, a cat who stays around when the vacuum cleaner is out, that is not happening at my house! Love that bean bag sofa, but how do you get up after? LOL.

Too too cool! Love those circle chairs. I had cousins who owned inflatable furniture back in the day-- in a zebra pattern!!

Fabulous! I've seen those birds before, I must have read that magazine and the image stuck in my subconscious. Love them.

I remember the colorful '70s so well. Fond memories. My favorite decade.

And don't forget...that chair was in fact a stereo sound chamber. You hooked up the receiver or turntable and listened to music that surrounded you.
