The way we were... Take a trip down mem­ory lane and see how you cooked, dec­o­rated and lived

You’ve got to love the era that brought us the pea­cock head­board (first time around!)

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Contents -

Dur­ing this time our homes were as bold as our clothes, from wall-to-wall pri­mary colours and av­o­cado bath­room suites to a riot of pat­terns. You’d find em­bel­lished wall­pa­per, so­fas, blinds and floor tiles all in one space! Browns and burnt or­ange, pan­elled tim­ber and rat­tan ruled our rooms.

The back­yard was no wall­flower ei­ther, packed with more pot­ted plants than a gar­den cen­tre. ‘More is more’ was our styling tip, as BHG turned stark court­yards into lovely liv­ing spa­ces. The con­cept (but not the name) of the ‘out­door room’ was born.

Moulded fur­ni­ture makes plas­tic fan­tas­tic.

We love the ex­treme colour co­or­di­na­tion.

Potty over plants, like we are to­day.

Ex­otic fare ’70s style.
