The epitome of good taste (part 2 that is)

Time to revisit How to Decorate Without a Decorator, A Realistic Guide to Interior Design by Mary Gilliatt, Thames and Hudson, London, 1977. More rooms that were the height of fashion in the decade many think taste forgot. Love the batik cushions in the Central Park apartment. (Who am I fooling? I really want that view!) The green in that entry way/greenhouse is just beautiful and I spy a peacock chair! See I am a child of the 70s. I must be reliving my youth. Can't get enough retro then visit my Flickr set retro modern.
