As an Architect - really enjoying how much of that interior design would pass muster right now !! Some of the cooler colours of the 70's palette are very popular again, but the paneling and form shaping has returned with vengeance. I liked it then and I kind of like it again.

I agree Richard :D I suppose I like it because I love Mid Century modern design and to me it has a similar feel.
