My parents built that house in 1970.

And then there was the full wall mural of a waterfall in our living room; the other side being floor to ceiling mirrored tiles. It was certainly groovy.

I know have that wall hanging in my bedroom and love it!

Do you remember that event?

In the house we live in, there isn’t any wallpaper at all — but some of the walls are painted to look as if they’re papered. : )

When we go cottage shopping, I’ve noticed many of the older homes have layers and layers of paper on the wall, but in the modern homes, I haven’t noticed much.

I moved here last year and for some reason it makes me feel better knowing others lived here and made it out. :)

I know this because me, my husband and our two boys live in that very house. We bought it from my parents six years ago and promptly started to remove the 1980′s striped/floral wallpaper…yes the living room had striped, floral paper. The dining room had pink floral wallpaper with a border! GAH! I am still in the process of removing the pink floral wallpaper from the stairway and upstairs hallway. It is such a PROCESS.

I loved the bold design and colors of marimkko and always have!

McKay hanging in her bathroom. Right in front of the toilet, at eye level. I dug up the quote:

“So much depends upon our willingness to make up our minds, collectively and individually, that present levels of performance are not acceptable unto [us] or … the Lord. In saying that, I am not calling for flashy, temporary differences in our performance levels, but a quiet resolve … to do a better job, to lengthen our stride.” Spencer W. Kimball

I could read, and I figured out what the quote said. But just because I could read it didn’t mean I knew what it meant. Then I made up a song to the tune of these words. You know, little songs that kids make up on their own. I’d sing that song every time I used that toilet.

I still remember that little song. In fact, it’s the tune to the song which helped me dredge up the quote to include here. But it’s because the song was engraved in what looked like black granite and mounted nicely onto a frame that caused me to look at it so much. I knew my mom thought it was important to hang it in such a prominent place.

For my 12th birthday, my parents gave me the gift of re-decorating my room. I chose that wallpaper and sewed matching curtains and Hollywood bed cover. I loved that wallpaper.

A huge influence on me from day one!

Love those wallpapers, your Mum has great taste!

Rachel
