Just saw A Serious Man (which I am still slightly perturbed by) and was very taken with the styling and interiors. Very Mad Men. Very now, in a then sort of way.
And I realised something. ASM is more sixties interiors, but who can tell the difference between the lates sixties and the early seventies anyway.
This thing that I realised is about the colour purple. Not the book/film (doing charades moves). If you know me, you'll know that I love purple, and most of my clothes are many different shades of purple, and quite a lot of my interior acessories / walls.
Basically, there were two kinds of seventies. You either had an orange / brown seventies experience (a la Morcheeba Big Calm), or you had a purple one.
And I've often wondered why my sister loves purple too, and sometimes wondered if she'd copied me (in the way sisters do) but now I realise that we both had the same seventies childhood: the purple one.
If it'd been the orange/brown one, who knows where I'd be.
