I picked up a Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book at a recent garage sale with the intent to resell. When I flipped thorough it at home, I decided it was a keeper. Published in 1975 it combines the mod era with that nostalgia/antique movement. Very cool.
This first picture shows the same room done in different colors. Quite a difference. Which one do you prefer? By the way, click on any photo to bring it up larger.
Say good-bye to boring doors with these fun colors.
Arrows anyone? I don't remember them being this popular. Quite a statement!
What a fun redo on an old bathroom! Believe it or not, my sister and I painted out bedroom these exact colors, bright yellow walls and dark/bright orange trim, somewhere around 1977. It was fun, but I have to admit when we repainted off-white over it years later, it did seem much more calm and cool.
Decor sure has changed. I have a few more shots from this book I'll post tomorrow.
Have a colorful day!
