Looking back at some of the hideous decor in my mum and dads house when I was younger makes me glad that fashions change so often. When I was really young we had a carpet called ‘Autumn Leaves’ I’m sure you can imagine what it looks like already and how busy it made our already crammed living room look like. Here’s a reminder of what our homes used to look like in the 70s & 80s! I hope this brings back some good memories for you 🙂 Enjoy! And don’t forget to share this with your friends if you enjoyed it!

Now these really were the bees-knees. With a radio on one side and a record player on the other side the possibilities really were endless.
Apart from playing music on them, these were a proper piece of furniture. I remember we put lots of family photos on top of mine.

We used to have one of these in our back room, it reminds me of sitting in with my family on a Saturday night.
