Older design books, either found at the library (yes, I am an active library user) or at the thrift store, are favorites of mine to look through when I’m tired of looking at the same white rooms on Pinterest and need inspiration. The Complete Book of Decorating, Edited by Corinne Benicka from 1976 gave me a little thrill this week. This book is on point with trends that are happening in the 20-teens in Interior Design – plywood, bold colors, low sectionals, pale wood, and mixed metals. It actually reminds me of flipping through a current Schoolhouse Electric catalog. Here are few photos from this book that caught my eye.
