Everyone’s kitchen seemed to be orange & brown or green & brown.
Our kitchen was valencia and teak and the neighbours kitchen was apple green and pine.
I prefer my old kitchen to the one here which is pine and pink laminate :rip: what were they thinking when they built here.
I got married in 1975 I wore a kaftan, DH wore tan trousers and shirt….. glad he didn’t wear the purple flairs.:lol:July 8, 2008 at 4:25 am #333356AnjaMember
I can’t find the photo, but I had a ‘suit’ of apple green, with white piping. The pants were flared of course, and there was a little tank top.
It was bootiful!July 8, 2008 at 4:27 am #333357bushyMember
So everyone has told of their embarrassing fashions of the 70’s, well I still have some of mine, I dont wear them but you never know they may make a comeback !!
Carefully stored are a pair of bold checked pants by Levi’s, so big the flair that they covered my shoes which was a shame really as they were 3 tone leather with elevated soles, in green, brown and claret color.
Top this with a beautiful paisely body shirt, so tight couldn’t do up the top buttons, which was cool as this exposed the hairy chest and ubiquitous gold chain.
Just to complete the picture I also sported a porn star droopy moustache
I solemnly swear I have never worn a safari suit in all my life !!!
Apologies to any of our lady members who I have made violently ill.July 8, 2008 at 4:52 am #333358bplumMember
how embarrasing reading these posts – i admit to 1974 wedding, he wore purple velvet w frilly shirt & bow tie, I had the floppy hat with long purple velvet ribbon . . our first kitchen had yellow & brown cabinets (Sofala Gold & Iberian Oak – what a memory!). Our waterbed (of course) had a reb/black/white geometric print spread. I did macrame and the standard fare for a dinner party was pumpkin soup followed by spag bol – served in chunky earthernware dishes – wine in pottery goblets. Otherwise, a fondue!
Oh happy days!July 8, 2008 at 6:58 am #333359jilumasamMember
Oh I remember learning Macrame and French knitting at school. I look at my childhood photos and think “ooh yuck those clothes are sooo dated”
I’ve only just moved from a house that was pure 1970″s from the carpet, to the front entrance way with textured gold/brown metallic wallpaper!!!! Fortunately common sense prevailed and the laminate in the kitchen was cream and not orange or lime green!

I love paisley!! I’ve always loved paisley and I’ll love it until the day I croak!
I remember having a funky denim jumpsuit, my name curved out in wire on a leather band and I remember going to the Sunbury Pop Festival! :metal:July 8, 2008 at 10:51 am #333363GiannaMember
Teenagers in the area wore shoes/sandals that looked like they were made of old tyres and creaked when they walked.
Ah yes, Treads! 😆 They went well with the hipster jeans and the knitted crop tops.
We had an oversized wooden spoon and fork on the kitchen wall. Very classy.
Didn’t everyone? 😆 Along with the electric can opener proudly displayed on the bench top.
I remember chocolate brown embossed wallpaper. :rip:
Here (in this house) was Mission Brown exposed beams and bright green laminate. The green has gone but the “chocolate” beams remain. 😆July 9, 2008 at 12:05 am #333364luvinMember

That sounds like a carbon copy of my wedding in ’78.:lol:
Hubby had the shirt with the vienetta ruffles down the front and the velvet bow tie to top it all off. What a look!:lol::lol:
At least Dad wore a plain dark brown suit and tie and if I know my Dad he probably still has it and it is probably the only suit he owns.:hug:July 9, 2008 at 11:05 pm #333369Michelle-smMember
Oh Pearl, I think those boys would need councelling after having to wear somrthing like that.:lol::lol::lol:
