Original Wallpaper and Carpet

As we continue working our way through the home renovation, it has been interesting to discover small fragments of the original decorating!

No doubt, it was the height of fashion back in 1978, when this house was built. A color scheme of orange and green shows up everywhere. Apparently most everything in the house was apple green - from the living room carpets to the bathroom fixtures.
However, the master bedroom / bath appears to have been primarily orange. Above is a swatch of carpet we found beneath the gray carpet we pulled up in order to install hardwood flooring in the master bedroom.

When we took down the vanity mirror - we were surprised to discover this vibrant foil wallpaper. Wow!
