Throwback Thursday: 1990s Style

The ‘90s are back and bigger than ever. Nostalgia for the 1990s has infiltrated every aspect of our culture as those born in the late ‘80s/early 90s reflect fondly on their childhoods. And since they’re now in positions to spread this nostalgia to the masses (um, guilty as charged) aspects of ‘90s fashion, culture, and decor are everywhere. While we may look back at the ‘90s fondly, I think most people agree that a lot of the trends haven’t aged well. While most of the people reading this probably remember what the ‘90s looked like, let’s take a look at some popular interior design choices from the 1990s for anyone who’s forgotten (or blocked it out of their memories)

Get the Look For Less: Grimm Stars’ Hollywood Hills Home

Get the Look For Less: Grimm Stars’ Hollywood Hills Home

As fans of the television show Grimm, when Apartment Therapy posted a tour of David Giuntoli and Bitsie Tulloch’s home we were thrilled to see the stars again.

Throwback Thursday: 1940s Style

Throwback Thursday: 1940s Style

The 1940s is basically defined by World War II. Basically every aspect of life was affected by it. In terms of design the decade is basically split into wartime and post-war. During the ware there wasn’t much new design as rationing and supply shortages stifled production for anything but war supplies. After the war it was a time of recovery, and production ramped up again. Technologies that had been developed for war use were now available to home consumers. After the war was also when the rise of the single-family suburban home began. While the first half of the ‘40s was still heavily influenced by the designs of the 1930s, the second half set the stage for the mid-century modern design of the 1950s that’s been so popular lately. But let’s take a look at what was going on design-wise during the 1940s.
