1970s Redux

Posted on Dec 5, 2011 in Feature, Life | 10 comments

If you follow me on a Twitter, you know about my 1970s vintage obsession. And most likely, my vintage owl collection. My vintage obsession began around 2009 – I started buying vintage dresses on eBay and I was completely hooked. Then came scouring Goodwill, Salvation Army, and various other thrift stores for clothes. It stayed with clothes for a while, until I bought my beautiful pride and joy, my vintage Marimekko print, and from then on it’s been all about the 70s. My apartment always had a 70s vibe, lots of orange and brown, but it’s gone into overdrive since I’be been living alone.

So, meet my apartment. I moved in on September 1st, and have been decorating fiendishly ever since. I can’t seem to go a week without hitting up Goodwill and buying something random to decorate the apartment with. There’s a mix of 70s and Mid-century modern in the apartment – basically I’m a sucker for anything from the 1950s-1970s.


And now presenting, 1970s Redux!

    OWLS!! I love owls!  Also, we had that same coffee thermos when I was a kid.  My mom may still have it.

      I have an owl problem, to the point that my friends now monitor my owl purchases.

        My mom collected owls. I got a little catch in my throat looking through these pictures.

    Your apartment is so cute. As a fellow lover of anything from the 1950’s-1970’s I’m a little jealous.

    ZOMG! I want all your owl things. I may collect owl things, not from a certain era, just owls in general and I would go crazy in your place! It looks super cute, I love your taste!

    It’s all so cute! I love how warm and cozy it is for you and your pups :). I love the owls. I have a ton of skeleton keys that I need to do something with.
