Home Decor (1959)

Here are some lovely pictures of home decor from my 1959 Good Housekeeping Needlecraft book. I'm normally not a big fan of 50s/60s decor but I quite liked these images.

 A sewing closet. Perfect if you don't have space for a sewing room.
 I love the needlework on this chair!

 I'm not sure if I hate this rug or love it...
 Every bathroom should have a vanity table! I wish I had space for one in my tiny bathroom...
I must learn to tat so I can make pretty tablecloths like this one.

That's All.

  1. I do love the blue and white living room. I've tried tatting, but I couldn't get my brain around it! I hope you have better luck!

  3. Ooh I love the sewing cupboard! Know what you mean about the rug tho, at first glance I hated it but now thinking I kinda like it! :)
