1989 Living Room Right Hand View

A living room in 1989 - the third and final image which shows the right hand viewThis is the right hand and final view of the 1989 living room and, for such a large and time-consuming project, this seems to come round quite quickly. One final step to complete the project is to produce a movie of, essentially, the same images but taken as the camera revolves and this is something I will work on this week despite the electrical work which is going on around me and will necessitate turning off the power for one possibly two days.

This scene shows the way in which hi-fi was taking over the living spaces in rooms particularly with the influx of available forms of media. Although this looks cumbersome and probably from a modern perspective, antiquated, this was to lay the foundations for the way in which media is presented today although, of course, none of it was streamed.

Again, since this is a forward-looking family, there are ‘Andy Warhol’ style prints on the walls which provide some colour and interest. One feature to note is that people still tended to have quite a lot of ornamentation on furniture such as wall units. However, this ostentation was beginning to disappear and by the advent of the next decade much of the ornamentation that you see will have gone. In order to prepare for this I have included vases and the like on the unit and the storage on one wall but I have tried to keep other ornamentation to a minimum.

I am Midcentury Styles and so I will not do a room in the next decade which would be very different with wood floors, less patterns and many more solid areas of colour.

This image is much smaller than the final image which I will post in its entirety on Flickr, the link being below.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
