When It's Not Easy Being Green

I've been meaning to post about this fabulous site I discovered a while back, Eurobad. As you might've guessed from the name, Eurobad highlights the best in garish European home design from the 1970s. Some are so eurobad, they're eurogood.

Mid-century modern furniture design from the 50s and 60s was so wonderful - lots of Danish teak and tasteful colors - so what went wrong when we reached the 70s? Did the effects of psychedelic drugs finally take their tole on interior decorating? A common mistake I've seen with a lot of 70s interior design seems to be that the more something matches, the better. It's the easy way out for people with no sense of home decor. Thus we've all seen a lot of bedrooms where the psychedelic design on the comforter is matched by the drapes, rug, and worse, the wallpaper. Therefore, I present a room to you that would make even Kermit the Frog dry heave. This particular gem of a kitchen was apparently created by someone who loved the color green so much so that it absolutely had to match the sportscar, or maybe it was the other way around? And as if they couldn't get enough green, they put two matching trees in there as well. (Click on picture for a larger view.)



There's more where this came from on the Eurobad site. Check them out, if you dare.
