Kid’s Room with Fireman’s Pole, 1979

Kid's Room 1979

I’ll be celebrating physical spaces and the design thereof all week, because there are some things the internet can’t replace. To wit, an abode that combines wood paneling, deep orange and red highlights, and a bloody pole as a means of entrance. The latter was the ideal method of travel before helicopter parents and the American legal system killed everything that was fun.

Suggested changes include replacing the butterflies (?) with a Star Wars poster, and I’m taking requests for ways to better use the space currently occupied by the wall gym (?). Bookshelf? Toy shelf? Wet bar?

The image is from the Flickr collection of Glen.H, one of the things that makes the internet irreplaceable.

    I say that back wall would be a great space for a TV, gaming console (Atari 2600, perhaps), and a couple bean bag chairs.
