There was a lot of leftover autumnal hues from the ’70s into the early ’80s and those colors are evident in these living rooms this period. Brown carpet seemed to be in a lot of homes back then before the ’80s accelerated and ushered in hypercolor T-shirts.

Most living rooms didn’t have great big windows to let in oodles of natural light but you can see similar décor trends of the ’80s with the earth tones. Indoor plants gained popularity in the ’70s as Americans got more Earth-conscious and continued to creep into the early ’80s.

These candid photos captured people on the couches in their living rooms from the 1980s.
