Retro revisited

Posted on Mon, 25 Jun 2007 by midcenturyjo

I love this book. Practical Decorating Ideas, Ure Smith, Sydney. 1973. I’ve since found out it was also published in Ameria under the title Decorating For Every Room In Your House, Fawcett Publications, 1969. How do I know? I bought both at the book fair and thought the pictures looked familiar!

Great book! all the design/how to books from the late 60’s early 70’s are so much fun.

Love the blue green room. Rug could be bigger. I can’t beleive this is from the late 60s.

I’m not sure whether to laugh or puke. (I do recognize the Robert Indiana art in 2nd last photo)
