The other book in this post is 'Your Beautiful Home on a Budget'-a book I have had for a while. It is full of incredibly awful design ideas, which I can't imagine anyone, even in the seventies, being able to live with. Look at this bathroom! Too much.
My favourite picture in the book is this one. I love the cosy lifestyle it evokes-and the multimedia/entertainment shown-'Ooh shall we read a book, this one, that one, eat a grape, watch tv?'The bed is our oyster.' This room actually looks quite liveable and cosy, so maybe not all the designs are bad. The oak leaf carpet reminds me of a similar one we had in our house in the seventies-but it was not browns-more reds, golds and yellows. Every piece of furniture is covered in pattern-bold and often not good-such as the bad table and chairs below. Imagine eating your breakfast from this table.
