15 Images That’ll Remind You Of Home Decor & Furnishings In The 70s And 80s

By Angie on August 22, 2016


The 70s was big and bold and the 80s was flowery and chintzy.  You will be forgiven for thinking I’m describing what was in my wardrobe – I’m talking wallpaper, carpets, curtains and tablecloths, to name but a few.  We had some very interesting furniture and furnishings back in the day, some of the patterns being enough to give you a migraine!

Have a laugh with me as I show you some images of what we were surrounded by when we were younger – it’s sure to cheer you up!

1  Video Recorder

This was the slimline version!

See how useful the remote control is.  Being attached to the recorder by a short wire slightly defeats the object!

2  Den

Did you use some coloured sheets  and a washing airer and chair to make a den!den

We were easily pleased in those days but it was actually good fun, eating biscuits under there!

3  Television 

Look at this nice, modern telly!

5  Blankets

I had about 4 of these on my bed, all different colours.

Some of mine were too small and used to untuck!
