Flashback To The 70's -
It Doesn't Get Any Funkier Than This!
By Robin Seyglinski
My fiancé and I collect antiques. I always went to estate sales and was attracted to those 70's ashtrays. The colors and shapes were intriguing.
My fiancé collected lava lamps and had a funky retro table that his mom purchased at a garage sale.
I am such a simple person and only like white walls. I would say it is hereditary.
Everything was always white in my mom's house.
I really liked the retro 70's era so we decided to go for it. It took me sometime to give him the ok, to paint another color but I got daring.
Kevin taped the wall and asked for my approval and I said it was perfect. I was extremely happy with the outcome.
The couch and chairs I won on Ebay. They fit the room so perfect, believe it or not the couch was rarely used and was made in 1970, I just had to have it.
Kevin's sister won the auction and I could not thank her enough. The furniture completed the room.
Thank you for your time,
(Note from Michael: Robin's willingness to get away from those all-white walls should be an inspiration if you've been grappling with a similar decision. Doesn't her new room look fantastic?!)
