Design Deja Vu 3: House & Garden Interior Decoration 1960

Sunday, April 8, 2012

Did you have a good Easter holiday?  We had an absolutely beautiful weekend in this part of the country and perfect weather for the Easter celebration at Coolidge Park on the river Easter morning.  

Today I'm very excited to share the following images with you.  I've blogged before about  my growing collection of Vintage decorating books.  Last week I added to my collection with a 1960 edition of House & Garden's Interior Decoration.  I found it at a used bookstore and although the cover is very worn and unpretty, the photographs found within are stunning.  Would you like to see what 1960 looked like?  Please keep in mind that these are photos of photos, so the quality's not the best...

Yes, circa 1960.  Loving this color palette and the little green chair with the white painted frame! Oh, and of course the Billy Baldwin slipper chairs!

White slipcovers and lots of Chinoserie.  So of the moment!

Timeless girls room.  I love the pink and red together.

Wallpaper or mural?  Does it matter? It's fantastic!

If you look closely, you can see that the sofa fabric is an ombre.  The curtains and ottoman are printed Belgian linen.  

Needless to say, I'm completely enamored with this book.  If you like these photos,  then head over to The Green Room Interiors on Facebook.  I've put an album together with more images photos from the 60's.  And I'd be so grateful if you "like" us!
