Aww yeah. If this doesn’t scream heinous-but-amazing, I’m not sure what does. We’ve featured the epic photoblog, My Parents Were Awesome, but with so many incredible submissions of people’s parents "back in the day," bloggers have been able to filter through and create their own niche collections—like this one that Apartment Therapy called, ‘My Parents Were Awesome… But Their Decor Was Not.’ Wood paneling, patterned wall paper, shag carpets, tweed sofas… while many things old are new again, some things are better off left in the past and enjoyed only in photographs.

Parents, you better watch out: those photo boxes of yours are so getting raided over the holidays! Stats for Retro Home LOLs Trending: Older & Chilly
