As a child of the 70's I was exposed to lots of kitchen decor that was just so bad it's now cool. Mission brown and khaki green was my parents decorating palette and still is. Now don't get me wrong, I like brown, but as a survivor of mission brown I have my limits. In our kitchen we had the classics. Firstly we had the 4ft wood carved Malaysian fork and spoon. How I loved this enormous decorating mishap. I was always waiting for Gulliver from Gulliver's Travels to arrive one night for dinner to share our fair spread. And lucky for me it still graces my parents walls, because why redecorate when you got it right the first time. Our kitchen was the height of fashion with a kid fashioned mustard and brown macrame owl, lime and brown heavily patterned lino, woodgrain laminate cupboards, a god awful flourescent light and a rope of clay folk art pots. Oh yes ladies and gentlemen a veritable eye candy of 70's goodness. I amped up the fork and spoon a bit what do you think?
Edit: Oh my I just posted with the fork and spoon going the wrong way. I'm so ashamed - luckily my sister picked it up before it really got out there. Thanks sis, she's got my back. Although she thought it wasn't right that I wasn't making the fork and spoon brown - sorry viewers just couldn't nudge the CMYK sliders in that direction.
