Makin' house

One of my most treasured thrift store finds, Laura Ashley home decorating book from the late 80's. The decor is so reminiscent of Adam and Barbara Maitland of Beetlejuice, you know, before they died and the Deetz's move in and make the house all trendy 80's (AKA - electric colours and geometric shapes). 

The whole aesthetic of this period in home decorating was so frilly, fru-fru, patchwork-y. Like Little House on The Prairie but amped up to feedback level. Looking at the images in this book I can just smell the pot-pouree.
