Houses and things

Posted on Mon, 30 Jun 2008 by midcenturyjo

I found a fabulous book Cose & Case, Forme,colori,oggetti, nell’arredamento. Robin Guild, Euroclub Italia S.p.A.,Bergamo, 1980. Edizione Italiana. So houses and things in a book with copious Italian text but thankfully also with lots and lots of lovely retro rooms. Early 80s here and I couldn’t be more excited. You have been warned it’s the next big thing in retro decorating. Ah…. knotty pine, pastels and beige back in our lives again.

I like the pastels and the pictures in the stairways and I think that is very modern and not retro at all. Thanks for the inspiration.

That first room would make me crazy. The Vespa ad/print on the wall in the third last photo is too cute!
