  1. a more purer human era.

  3. Lalalalalala Lalalalaheufjf

    I WAS THE 10,000 SUB LADS

  4. This is wonderful, and his voice brings back a lot of memories. What a great way to look at colors.❤ this

  5. Born in 1956. I can remember when we didnt have seat belts in cars or air conditioning. I can remember no air conditioning in our home. Black and white TV. No curse words allowed on any TV shows. It is such a different world. I believe I like the old one much better. My childhood was so much better then today.

  6. Why is the young 1950s housewife who would have a high school diploma spoken to as intelligent being using words like 'elegance, beautiful, infinite, harmonious, pleasing, delightful, liveable, charming and tasteful' and she is shown mixing and painitng her own walls whereas now home renovation shows tell Millenials with college degrees and fulltime jobs to have 'real statement pieces, real feature walls and colour pops' to be 'on point' ito mpress others?' I know which era seems the peak of Western Civilisation to me.

  7. Sooo much yes. I can't even.

    I'd be super unimpressed if I were colour blind for most of my life and one day out of the blue I could see colour and these were the colours I saw.

  8. Painting over wall paper? Not a good idea.

  9. Is it me, or is the colour a bit faded?

  10. "It is color, the harp-string of beauty"

  11. I did just exactly this w/ my mom when we got new house in 1960 OMG I had forgotten so much of this. She was so proud of it all.

  12. Back in the day when women were beautiful and elegant; not the fat, blue-haired feminists that we see today.

  13. Like the 50's interior style.

  14. These are the best things on YouTube lol

  15. Oh I still hate this decor, I hated it as a child and I still hate it.

  16. Those colors are hideously boring.

  17. Alatina Thucklemuggin

    avacado, burnt orange, brown and dull gold, all the colorful wonder of the mid-20th century!

    I’m so in love and obsessed with vintage homes.

  19. This must have taken such a great amount of know how and work to assemble especially without the computerized systems and fancy tech we have today. Honestly I would totally use this wheel!

  20. Club1920s-Roleplay

    Oh yeah…. I need some colour order in my life lol. I also need the 1950s figure!!!

    I miss my Parents. My Mom is still here but she has dementia. My Grandparents are gone. I miss this kind of living. I wasn't born in the 50s, but I know my Parents were thinking about the little girl they would have one day.
