This image is from the series ‘Ideal Home’, which records successive changes in the decor of a north London home throughout the 1980s. The view through the window is probably a mirror image of the other side of the street: 1930s semi-detached houses – the epitome of British suburbia. Through delving into the detail of domestic arrangements, Taylor catalogues the ordinary suburban lifestyle, analysing people’s connection to commodities and their environment.

Labels and date

This image is from the series Ideal Home that records successive changes in the décor
of a North London home throughout the 1980s. The view through the window
is probably a mirror image of the other side of the street: 1930s semi-detached houses, the epitome of British post-war suburbia. Through delving into the considered detail of domestic arrangements, Taylor catalogued the ordinary suburban lifestyle, revealing people's connection to commodities and their environment.
