Check out this ranch for sale, “minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.” It was built in 1974 and appears to have been decorated with every single style of wallpaper on the market at the time. Talk about a time capsule! And the entry hall is only the beginning.
We also have a dining room, in which the chairs were upholstered (camouflaged?) to match the walls:
In the kitchen, they weren’t content to leave the pattern on the vertical spaces. It also runs rampant across the soffit and ceiling–not to mention the floor:
This room has paint instead of paper (in Pantone’s Color of the Year!), but check out the wallpapered door that matches the rest of the hall. How groovy is that?
Some of the wallpaper actually looks a little more ’80s than ’70s to me, so maybe some rooms were updated along the way.
When I was growing up, my mom hired an interior designer who sold her on this exact same grassy-green colored carpet for our living room in 1984 (I’m having flashbacks):
The house has plenty of space–4 BR, 4BA, and 4,660 sq feet–and they’re asking $750,000. Could be a great deal for someone who either 1) loves wallpaper or 2) loves stripping it. It sits on over half an acre and has a beautiful in-ground pool, too. Lots of potential! Anyone up for the challenge?
