Happy Wednesday to all my Decor Peeps! I am still tired and dragging after a stint at camp with a small drove of elementary kids from my church. While I was there, my friend Michelle G. couldn’t wait to show me the decor in the “hospitality suite” on campus. It’s a little trailer of sorts with a living room, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms. Anywho, couldn’t resist taking a few pics to share this little time capsule, circa 1974. Let’s start with the faux wood paneling and console television. Yes, I remember having both in my childhood home!
Faux Wood Paneling is a Decor Faux Pas
You know I love owls! But this one’s kinda creepy. I think it’s made of pinecones or something.

These dated wood cabinets would look great with a few good coats of creamy white paint. This look reminds me of an old ship interior for some reason . . .

Little has changed in this little love nest since 1974.
Some lovely shell art – this is why I’m not really into crafting . . .

This is the bathroom. I really don’t know what to say about this . . .
Now the lighting definitely had some potential! Hanging drum shades are totally hot right now, so you could just remove that velvet trim.

And I also like this one – I actually have a similar sconce in one of my daughter’s rooms with that same hobnail glass.

Ok, now THIS I love!!! What a cool wood light switch cover – if only it wasn’t placed on top of wood paneling. At least the light switch cover appears to be real wood.

Wow, it just occurred to me that this is totally James Rockford’s beach trailer!!!! Now I’m not going to be able to get that theme song out of my head all day. Anywho, here I am with my bevy of 5th grade campers and my brave co-counselor.

We made it without any ticks or broken bones, but not without a lot of drama and waayyyy more information about Justin Beiber than I ever wanted to know. If your home looks like the one featured in today’s post, contact The Decorologist immediately!
