    this is the ugliest thing i have ever seen, and I have that book "Interior Desecrators, Horros From The Land of Shag"

    WTF IS WITH THE 70'S BULLSHIT?!?1

    Look, it doesn't look out of place from actual 70's decorating magazines:

    it's much to cluttered for my tastes, but still i like it. they have got some great furniture, art & cast iron cookware. that closet is really cute. the more i look at the pics, the more the place grows on me. cool find!

    I don't know why I don't hate this, but I find it very interesting and cool.

    yeah, i completely agree with you. it's warm, inviting, a little cluttered and i love their choice of wallpaper. the more i look at it, the more i like it.

    eta: i'm so sorry grimm. it's the '70 reinvented.

    You have to consider where this is-Portland-very dreary there. I think this has a cozy,lived in,well loved look. Refreshing not to have a "you can't touch this" feeling. Real people who are expressive and fearless live here! Good for them.
    PS-I crave that cast iron cookware collection.

    It's a little too cluttered, but I'm really digging some of the pieces and some of the wallpaper. It's too much all at once though.

    agree it's too much all at once.
    still, i like it for some reason. just not for me. i like more space and sleeker lines, and less clutter and colour and this place is pattern overkill.

    Ok..there are parts I like... but really...it does have too much of the WORST of the seventies..(and I actually like the seventies).

    This place looks like Rhoda's apartment!
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    I hate hanging plants though it works with this decor.

    It was cool to look at, but not something I'd want to live in.
