    Oh Good God no! All kinds of no in every language that exists. Jesus, it's like their hobby is collecting the fugliest stuff in the world and use it to decorate their house with. UGH.

    The 1950s was craptastic 60 years ago and it still is. As you can see.

    Some of it's way too busy. I never saw a dishwasher with a wood surface, you'd think with all the wood already in there they'd spare the wooden look on the dishwasher. I kinda like the red and green apple in the kitchen.

    the apples are vintage ice buckets from the 60s and 70s. i have a few in my kitchen, they're cool.
    the rest of the place is pretty hideous and there's just way too much going on. i like a vintage piece here and there but not a technicolor 70s wood-paneled nightmare. it's soooooo busy and and eye rapes you.

    oh, they're ice buckets. I like them anyway but even better that they have a function.

    I hate it. Straight up Porpoise Spit. I can hear the Abba clear across 2 oceans and 5000 miles of dirt. The only thing that's missing from those pictures is the husband's mistress in rubber gloves cleaning out the under-sink cabinets after the wife offed herself.

    Ugh.

    This house belongs in Interior Desecrations. It's a transplant from the 1970s. I like the blue in the dining room and some of the furniture, but it's too busy. I appreciate the colorfulness, though. It's much easier on my eyes, even with the clashing patterns.

    The interior reminds me of an upgraded, somewhat customized mobile home. Like at any minute you could just attach a truck to this place and roll it down the street on the wheels that are hidden by the underpinning.

    Actually, the 1950s bits are quite nice. It's the 60s and worse, the 70s crap that hurts my eyes. I am not a fan of mixing the 70s with any other decade, decor-wise, especially not the elegant and minimalist 50s. It needs to be isolated. Quarantined. Burned.

    The Tretchikoff painting of the green-faced Chinese lady is from 1952. The horrible eye-raping "colorful" fabrics on that couch...later.

    But this damn painting!

    A dear friend of mine who died tragically some years ago owned one of those redwood forest prints. The exact same image. She adored it; it completely suited her. I've seen several in thrift stores since then and it always weirds me out. I guess there really are a LOT of them out there...
