That's So '70s

I picked up my camera for the first time in a few weeks just to take a picture of this:

If you stare at it longer than 7 seconds, the pattern will permanently damage your retinas. 

Well, probably.
Now that I'm looking at it on screen, "psychedelic" doesn't seem to be the right word.

Maybe "groovy"?

Or "far out".

Or "hideous".

You know what's funny? Somebody used to think this carpet was amazing. And in the next fifty years, it will probably be considered the pinnacle of floor fashion once again. Maybe we should just leave it, pop a disco ball on the ceiling, buy a ton of stock in polyester and wait 50 years.

You thought this was the future?
In the words of wise guy Solomon, "There is nothing new under the sun."

Or as Justin Timberlake says, "What goes around, goes around, goes around comes all the way back arrrouuunnnddd ... " Slightly less eloquent, but still catchy. Especially since it's repeated five hundred times.

Anyhoo, I don't think I can handle looking at this carpet too much longer, so we're thinking of finding some Faux-go (that would be Pergo for poor people) to lay right over the top of it. Possibly something like this:

We'll have to get some swatches and see how it looks with the rest of the house colors. Which would be wood, wood, navajo white, wood, orange, puke green, naugahyde, wood, cheetah print (really), beige-ish and wood.

Despite the decor, I must say I am SO HAPPY to finally be moved! I just want to get down and boogie.

It's a disco inferno, peeps.

And not just because I want to burn the carpet.

Pin It!
