'the practical encyclopedia of good decorating'

i have a set of decorating encyclopedias that i found in my grandmother's attic a couple of years ago on my bookshelf that i flip through from time to time, copyright 1970. hilarious, to say the least. although, upon posting this photo i realized that i recently had a hand in designing a room with a sofa fabric not unlike the one shown here. the only difference was the color, and it looks good!
