70s Rec Room – Paula
This diorama was cleverly created in a box. Open the top, fold down the side and there is the Rec Room. Reverse the procedure to store it out of sight.
The Rec Room, usually in the basement of the home, was a place the family shared to relax and have fun. Often it was equipped with a home bar, games, and music. You’d often find the TV there and a record player.
The anti-establishment trend of the 70s influenced the home décor with the “Mod” look. Trendy colors were bright green, turquoise, sunshine yellow, orange and brown.
That look is said to be making a come back.
