Back to the future — Fifties interior book

Once a year our local libary has a sale of their discontinued books, with all profit going to charity. Being always on the hunt for that perfect second hand treasure I am off course present every year. Last time I found this neat little sixties paperback.

'Het Binnenhuis' — roughly translated to 'The Interior House' — contains 150 pages filled with interior advice and decorating tips. Although I fear there pricelists might be a bit out of date...



Now I have to admit that my attention tends to wander when reading non-fiction but fortunately for me this book is brim filled with illustrations!







One of the illustrations I am fond of the most is the one with the futuristic looking television sets, much beter looking than the current flat screens.

What an awesome find! I can't wait for our annual library sale. I missed it last year!
