This Hilariously '80s Decor Video Reveals The Dark & Dusty Side Of The Decade

Holy crap, guys.

If the shoulder pads won't knock you out in this vintage video that is so '80s that it nearly permed my hair just by watching it, the decor will. Though admittedly tame by that decade's standards, the sheer volume of fabric, overscaled furniture and dried flowers makes this clip a laughable look into the past. (Though it's missing the sponge painting, wallpaper borders and faux finishes to put it really into the era.) So glad we gave up this interpretation of "English country" in favor of decidedly more streamlined trends.
