Wahay... those delights are quite something! Some are verging on an assault on the eyes :) love it, great post!


What makes me laugh is the fact that some of these rooms are coming back as trends. Stupid hispters thinking that this all is classy. HAHA!
My parents remodeled their house but forgot to redo the closets in the master bedroom. They are still that hideous green that cannot decide if it should be lemon yellow or poopy brown.
Oh the modern era confounds me.


Your captions were hysterical. :D


Great captions :) they really are weird! And has that woman really got her hand down her trousers?! Also scary is if you take away the orange plastic-ness the first picture it looks remarkably like ikea bathroom designs now?

Abbie - an assault on the eyes is right! There was also one grass-green kitchen with a car to match!

Lauren - Oh wow, I'll bet your parents are just used to it. I think it's safe to say that colour will never, ever, be resurrected in design!

Angela - Thank you! These photos killed me.

Fiona - Somehow I hadn't noticed her hand down her trousers! That's probably a good thing, I would have tried to incorporate that into the caption!

Denise ♥


Brilliant! I think the first bathroom is back in style, though. The hair-do and pantsuit may be next. Heaven help us.

Good Golly, that green/yellow/orange/brown thing in decor then - there are some things that should NEVER undergo a revival. Except for the espadrilles on the model in the first photo- great then and now. BTW, your captions are hilarious!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels

oh my gosh Denise! I just about died laughing looking at these!! Where did you find them?


heehee! LOVE this post.

I do quite love the tiled bathroom, not in my house however!!


But I LOVE the shoes on the model in the second photo. I want them.

Denise @ Swelle

Sian - those shoes are pretty wicked! xx


Delightfully ghastly! I especially like the photos' captions. I just had to share this on Facebook.

Denise @ Swelle

Aw, thank you!! ♥
