Groovy bathroom wallpaper.  The house was built in 1972.

    Wow! That house looks brand new! I love the first bathroom but the rest is a bit ugly. lol

    Even I will admit that not all retro stuff is in good taste! Do like the blond bedroom furniture, though.

    I would move right in….the house looks spotless! Ugly decorating doesn’t bother me. Filth and disrepair bother me.

    If I could find a house like the hot pink dazzler you had on early, looked like retro Vegas, I would buy it, pay the list price, plus to include the furniture! I am way into retro.

    I think the wallpaper in the dining room was used on That 70’s show.

    If that carpet is 40 years old, then these people need some kind of award for cleanliness.

    I would so live in this type of house, sans the dark kitchen cabinets. I love these retro ‘museum’ homes

    I almost rented a little old house in Arkansas with red countertops in the kitchen. Had to pass it up because the yard didn’t have a fence for my dogs.
    ::sigh::

    This is RIGHT down the street from me - I’m super curious to know where it is (this is a very big money town). What a fabulous find!

    I don’t have a problem with any of it. Does that mean I have a problem?

    I kinda love the first bathroom and the green wallpaper room…this house is amazing, I love it. I don’t know if I could stand the metallic wallpaper but it’s almost so vintage it’s cool

    I love it. Just one thing has me wondering. In the first bathroom, the picture is taken facing a mirrored wall.

    Where is the photographer/camera?

    I sure wish we had colorful carpet in OUR house!

    The first bathroom is an optical illusion. I haven’t figured it out yet. I love the green room.
