|Coffee tables and sheepskin- think Ikea|
After a particularly stressful day, I often long for the good old days.
Really old days if you're me!
I find memories of my family and the places we spent time very soothing.
Most of these interiors are not exactly like the ones I remember but there are some elements that are familiar from memory that resonate with my current sensibilities.
A silver tulip table would be nifty.

The lacquered walls, the art, the bureau as bar, its all then and now.
Yes, people actually had that carpet in 1972 and the chairs were a common sight. I included it because of the very au courant Tangerine.
I can just see my parents having fondue and a bottle of Lancer's Claret.
I believe this image is from the 1960s but could easily find its way in to a shelter mag today, no?
This is so horrible, but I think we had that TV. The sofa and carpet look sorta familiar too.
In many ways the 1970s visually sucked.
This kitchen is hard to look at but the Moroccan lattice on the cabinets is a familiar current motif.
I would really like an all white kitchen with Cararra marble subway tile backsplash but I'd take this groovy kitchen in a heart beat as long as I don't have to wear the jumpsuit.
For those of you who did not live through the early 1970s and really like some of the mod styling, beware. By the mid 80s we cringed every time we saw any of these things.
Still, they represent to me a simpler time when I was a child.
