Rewind - 1970

Back when Elvis was still eating peanut butter & jelly sambos, shooting teles, and watching girls wrestling in their undies. (Now there's a guy who knew how to use money and fame!)

Back before minimalist interiors invaded the scene, this is how Australians aspired to decorate their houses.

I love this book, hours of fun have been spent pouring through these pages!

Is it wrong of me to want this as my house? I've already got the orange domed lightshade, but I think I need the floral wall paper to go with.
Love your doilified skirt by the way!

I have this book too. Isn't it wonderful?! It's full of inspiration. I love the kids rooms and all the orange. So much orange.
