This is an interesting idea.

While not in CA, they built a mall in my hometown in the same year I was born. Up until the early 90s, it was incredible inside. Everything in heavy dark brown wood, with fountains with plastic trees running the length of the lower level. It was almost like a Polynesian restaurant, which, I think, i...

That is WAY HOT. I wish I lived in southern California... and, er, had a million dollars.

DON'T DO IT!!! My mom's cabinets at home are full of classic late 70s / early 80s Star Wars/Smurf etc. fastfood promotional glasses that were put in the dishwasher and destroyed through severe fading. As a result, I adopted the rule of thumb that anything pre-1986 gets handwashed. My complete set of...

We've got a pretty amazing vintage Weber's drive in over the bridge in Jersey, complete with sputnik on the roof. There is carhop service, but, alas, not via rollerskates. Following our return from our Graceland roadtrip a few years ago, my boyfriend and I went there for burgers, and they had an Elv...

Then, in the 80s, everything became dark and...

I've tried to do the Emma Peel flip in the past with varying degrees of success. It normally only works in the first few weeks after I get my hair cut, and then only when my hair is cut right. Am BEYOND stressing, though, because I just lost the veritable God Of Hair after he moved to Savannah with ...

It's funny that you guys are talking about Dwell Vs. Atomic Ranch. I just moved in with my boyfriend, and we had several disagreements over how to integrate the furniture. We're both modernists, so it didn't occur to us that it would be an issue; however, to paraphrase that old Donny & Marie son...

In response to Chimay's post above, I think that has to do with the greater problem of there being no accountability anymore. With the growing number of times people are changing jobs/careers in a lifetime, they know less and care less about what they do. This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine -- the numb...

Hi, SDR, Thanks so much for the tips. I'm going to have to think about what route to go as I don't really trust my skills to do such in-depth repairs myself. Also have a Danish modern couch with 3 wire hooks that have popped out underneath, so maybe when I locate someone to repair that, I can see if...

Yes - Castaway it is! Thanks for that. I wanted to go back the next time I was in town, but I couldn't remember what it was called. Does anyone have any memories of what it was like back in the day?

There's a really cool place up in the hills of Burbank that has a terraced patio that looks out over the city. There are also fire pits you can sit around. I was there about five years ago, but I can't remember what it was called. Does anyone know? The inside looked like it had been redone, but you ...

Hi, SDR,

Thanks so much for trying to help with my little dilemma. I'll post some pictures later tonight.

Some of the marks will be covered with the computer when I put it on there, but if I can get them off, that would be even better.

Hi, everybody, I'm new to the Lotta Livin' community, but I have been an avid fan of mid-century architecture and design for about five years. We don't have a lot of what my boyfriend and I refer to as "mid-century sexiness" (i.e. coffeeshops, flat-roofed houses, etc.) out here on the East Coast, bu...
