Double retro trouble!

Posted on Fri, 21 Sep 2007 by midcenturyjo

What better way to end the working week than a second dose of retro inspiration. Once again these images are scanned from Better Homes Decorating Ideas, Ruth Quatermaine, Meridith Publishing Company, 1967. Bedrooms bedrooms and more bedrooms. Master, guest and children’s rooms to love or loathe.

Wahoo! Retro time!

This week’s retro treats are from Better Homes Decorating Ideas, Ruth Quatermaine, Meridith Publishing Company, 1967. My scanner has been running hot. True 60s inspiration or desperation. Love it or hate here’s your retro therapy.

It’s my favourite time of the week, retro time!! This week’s amazing pictures are scanned from The Complete Book of Decorating. An Illustrated Guide to Designing Your Home, Corinne Benicka, Lansdowne Press, Sydney, 1980. And before someone comments they are smoking in that conversation pit. Bad people but the cushions are divine!

Time for another trip to the retro vault. This time a look at wall coverings and window treatments. Images scanned from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 17, Greystone Pres, 1971.
