Our 2013 Retro Renovation Color of the Year is Drexel Premier Chapter One Flower Power Rich Lime Green… so heck to the yeah, it was good to hear from reader Rebecca, who recently captured many fantabulous photos of a 1967 time capsule home on a home tour in Palm Desert, California. This house is absolutely dreamy — Lookie that little daffodil lamp in the bathroom — bulbs in the bulbs! And wait until you see the television set.
This lovely home was designer-decorated in the early 1970s — all matchy matchy confection perfection. This collage that Kate made, from some of the photos on Rebecca’s blog Mid-Century Modern Remodel [<--go see 'em] only hints at the loveliness in this space.
When Rebecca emailed me, she wrote:
I thought you would get a kick out of this time capsule home I stumbled across in the desert @ Palm Springs Modernism Week. It wasn’t advertised at all and kind of tacked on to a “Designer Home Showcase” tour of newly decorated homes. That green is my favorite color too. I literally gasped when I stepped inside. The second bathroom foil wallpaper reminded me of your office patchwork. Even the colors!Happy Friday!!!!!Rebecca
Thank you, Rebecca, for thinking to share your luscious discovery here — and thank you, for giving us permission to use some of your photos to make an enticing collage. Readers — head over to Rebecca’s blog to see all the photos. And may the luck o’ the Irish be with you.
