A Travesty of Home Decor

Sewing For Your Home
McCall Pattern Company

Prepare yourself for some of the most disturbing decorating we have had here at ALB in a long time. It would probably help if you were medicated to look upon the bedrooms presented below. I shudder to think what would happen to me if I had to actually LIVE in one of these rooms. The amount of fabric needed had to be staggering!

The color schemes feature derivatives of the 1970s favorites of Harvest Gold and Avocado Green.  The portable typewriters add a nice “modern” touch. As a teen in the 1970s, no one I knew had a bedroom like the ones presented. Canopy beds were big deal, but again, no one I knew had one.

In case you are wondering, the first picture is both a bedroom and a “room for entertaining.” I think it is a nice touch to have the bowl of fruit and the table so people have a convenient place to put their keys at the next swinger’s party.

Stay groovy,

  1. I can’t say that I have ever been a matchy-matchy fan, but the scale on which the designs have been undertaken would be suitable for interesting boutique hotels.

    The thing to remember about art and design is that what comes round, goes round – so being critical of the past is really being critical of our own decisions today. Art and design is about being able to appreciate people’s concepts.

  2. Twenty-four-hour bedroom is right! Who could get to sleep or stay asleep with those patterns breakdancing around you all night?!

  3. I’m not sure how you can even find the bed in some of these rooms! Even the ceiling is wallpapered in one room!
