Sweet smokin’ Judas, what were they thinking?

Welcome back to Interior Desecrations, a brutal examination of the unlovely, unattractive, unlivable and unforgivable homes of the 1970s. All eras have some bad taste, of course – but it took the 70s to make bad taste triumphant and universal. It took the 70s to convince everyone to stick foil wallpaper on the wall, paint the bathtub purple smother the floors in shag so deep it tickled the tops of your ankles, and hang art that managed to clash with everything, including itself. I mean, look at the picture on this page – what is that? A dissected Rubiks’s Cube attempts to threaten a potted plant and his child, I guess.

Love the rug, too. They didn’t even make AMC cars in those color combinations. They didn’t dare.

Interior Desecrations was once a website, a popular & venerable part of the Institute of Official Cheer – and then it was a book! And now it's out of print! So here we are, back where it began.

NOTE: This site has been revised in early 2021. Some subsites are offline for a while, as they're resized and brought up to snuff, inasmuch as snuff-upability is possble.
