Your Own Room
Everything I know about interior design I learned from this book.
It was given to me by my Mom when I was a preteen. (in the 60's)
(And if you saw my house, you might say.. "Well, that explains a lot.")
I learned all about color personalities. I learned to dig jazzy color combos.
I learned about comforting colors and refreshing ones.
I wanted to be a chick that was hip to space!
I spent hours moving little furniture rectangles around graph-paper rooms.
I learned that furniture had jivey names
like Jacobean, Hepplewhite, Windsor and Modern.
I read that adding a few zany pieces would add soul.
I really wanted a room like this shimmering, star studded, "Ballerina bedroom",
but since I shared a room with my sister,
the "Two-sister-room-with-privacy" was more practical.
I loved this book!!
If you have any chickies in your life (10-11-12 year olds)
a far out guide like this might be the grooviest gift you can give them.
(No, I don't usually talk this way, but the book does.)
I'm joining the Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingie Thursday.
