Interior Decoration A to Z by Betty Pepis c. 1965




Following the footsteps of my favorite people/bloggers, I too will periodically post photos of some favorites of my vintage book collection. I am a notorious thrift-store /estate sale scavenger and have been since my early high school days. You can imagine the ungodly amount of random knickknacks I've acquired. And in true packrat fashion, a lot of my best finds get shoved in a corner of my room, wearing coats of dust. Time to start cleaning out-

This book I found at a random thrift store in south LA. 90 cents I believe it was. I have a weakness for design books, especially the ones from the early to late sixties. I avoid the eighties at all cost, especially since I lived through horrid days of lightening bolt-all over print couches. In this "tome", Betty Pepis defines relevant interior design terms and applies them to everyday decorating. I've definitely found inspiration for my own room makeover. But more on that later.

The shapes of the tables influence how they
should be arranged so that they can evoke sensual decorations.
The three most popular types are modern, retro
and antique. Fusion d├ęcor is different things to different people, but
it is hard to find better than this.

You can use colored paper, silver tinsel, and fake snow to produce
your property into a Xmas delight. You can find many rewards for these unique
seasonal bulbs which might be cluster powered,
and power protecting is one among people rewards. Inflatables have become very
common and are available in most vacation motifs.
