Omodern

Exciting news everyone! Down and Out Chic is hosting the first ever giveaway from The Cottage Cheese, so be sure to pop over and enter!

My husband stumbled upon Omodern last night. This site features design so bad that it's good and man-band-fashion from the 1970's, and is so funny that it actually hurts a little. Imaginary real estate ad for this home: "The kitchen is conveniently stable-adjacent." Um, is it wrong that I think the green paneling is kind of cool?
I don't know what's going on here, but that kid is really pissing Mom off. Mom's outfit is kind of adorable.
I dig this bathroom. Yep, I said it.
Although it's loud, I think this room is kind of fun. I envy that wall shelf.
Yellow and bronze make for one sexy bathroom. Heh.
A number of things puzzle me about this room. Is there some sort of electrical appliance plugged into the shower area? What is that little green rectangle on the wall behind the lavatory? Are carpet AND area rugs needed in a bath (seems a redundancy of germ collectors)? Does that white box hanging on the wall dispense some sort of feminine hygeine product?
Coordinate your kitchen with your car! A bit overboard on the green, but I still think this is one of the best 70's kitchens I've ever seen.
Not only does Omodern show off really good bad rooms, but we also have examples of decorating with faux fur...
And a wonderful spread of fashionable 1970's boy bands (although the "boys" were all middle-aged, or perhaps just looked middle-aged). Soooo many unattractive men in double knit poly in every color of the rainbow...
I love you Omodern.
Have a great weekend everyone! Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Giveaway, did you say?? I'm headed there next!
This Omodern reminds me of the 60's decor books that I buy at Goodwill. The weird color/fabric combos are so funky, they almost work. And that band is really creepy. Bad album cover choice.

Oh, My!...Omodern.

And that is not "Mom".
That is his older-slut-step-sister who still sleeps at home once in a while. That's why he needs to take a peek, to see why she's so popular.

Wow. That's all I can say. Whoever thought of matching your kitchen to your car. I'm pretty sure that faux fur bedspread would give me nightmares. Great blog here! I'm off to check out your giveaway!

omg i am having major flashbacks of my grandparent's 70's inspired furniture and carpeting. Browns and oranges and greens, oh my!

if you saw this house my husband and i are looking at you would die. owned by an 80 year old couple, purchased when it was built 1968. they had it all done up by professional designer in 68 and everything is original including the blue-green shag... and in INCREDIBLE condition. It was fantastic!

Down and Out Chic said...

that little teal mini skirt that "mom" is wearing is really cute. the little boy- kind of creepy. hehe.

DaMonique said...

It's all so ridiculous! I love it! Although the stables next to the kitchen freak me out~ gross!

anotherfishinthesea said...

wow this was disturbing.

Pretty Little World said...

I also love that green paneling in the first pic, but very much wonder how appetizing it would be to cook meals in a room that constantly smelled like horse crap....

Janne said...

Great stuff! Omodern is Swedish for unfashionable, by the way. And the white box in the shower is the hot water tank/boiler. I have a whole book on 'man bands' as you call them - I keep thinking I should make a blog post...

Sam said...

All I can say is "Wow!"

Summer said...

I'm digging those mary janes she's rocking in that bathroom!!!!
