Can You Tell Which Room Was Decorated in 1970?

A Flickr stream posted by Mike Love has been making the blogrounds due to its giddy depiction of 70′s decor, more specifically, selected pages from the Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, published in 1970. It’s a glorious cacophony of gold and zebra stripes, polka dots and pink, but overall, much too much for a Monday (we came close to tagging a few of the photos “may offend”).

Laugh if you will, but then visit, if you will, this piece from last Thursday’s NY Times House and Home, where today’s designers try to create happiness with–yes!–gold and zebra stripes, polka dots and pink. The similarities are uncanny.
