Oh wow, man

Stumbled across an image I hadn't thought of in a long time.

1970s era flower decals.  Like you might see on Laugh-In.  Painted on Goldie Hawn.

True story.  She is from this era and my parents lived in the same apartment as her sister, so they saw her a bit.  Both before and after she bacame famous.

Anyway, went down an image search rabbit hole.

Ugh.  There were on everything.  The non skid in our bathtub, the glass on the sliding glass door so you wouldn't walk right into it.  Parts of the 70s were really dumb.

Yes, very large parts.

You might appreciate Interior Desecrations.

"Sweet smokin’ Judas, what were they thinking?

Welcome back to Interior Desecrations, a brutal examination of the unlovely, unattractive, unlivable and unforgivable homes of the 1970s. All eras have some bad taste, of course – but it took the 70s to make bad taste triumphant and universal.
