Here’s Exactly What Your House Looked Like in 1984
Three words: Laura Ashley bedspread
But let us remind you that just three short decades ago, your stylin’ house looked a liiittttle bit different. Let’s take a (wildly embarrassing) walk down memory lane, shall we? Here's what the world looked like in 1984.
EVERYTHING WAS SURROUNDED BY WOOD
…Including the TV (which was always tuned to Who’s the Boss?).
AND YOU HAD A REALLY HIGH-TECH SOUND SYSTEM
A record player and cassette deck, oooo…
YOUR KITCHEN HAD BRAND-NEW FORMICA COUNTERTOPS
Bonus points for wood cabinets that hit right at the bottom of the drop ceiling.
IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE LAURA ASHLEY FLORALS
…Especially in the bedroom.
“MODERN” DINING TABLES WERE ALL THE RAGE
Especially when paired with some classy southwestern art and chairs from--you guessed it--Laura Ashley.
YOU HAD ONE OF THESE BABIES IN YOUR DRIVEWAY
Ooo, the Toyota Cressida. So boxy and practical.
AND YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE ON THE BLOCK WITH A FINISHED BASEMENT
It had wood paneling, a wet bar and hunter green berber carpeting.
YOUR ENTIRE BATHROOM WAS PINK
Including the bathtub and toilet. Wait, isn’t that Pantone’s color of the year?
AND YOUR PLAYROOM LOOKED LIKE THIS
My Little Pony FTW.
THIS FUGLY COUCH WAS IN THE REC ROOM
Floating in a sea of puffy brown carpeting.
...WITH THIS POSTER OVER IT
At least one thing about 1984 was awesome.
