This is a fabulous copy of the Better Homes & Gardens Decorating Book put out by Meredith Publishing in the 1950's and 60's. This one is in great condition! I don't think anyone has EVER flipped through all of the pages - well, except for me when I took these few pics! The book is a five ring binder and there are no tears or missing pages. The plastic page protectors are still in place.

This book shows you "How to plan colors and furnishings that reflect the personality of your family - over 300 full color illustrations." Inside cover lists copyrights 1956, 1961 by Meredith Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa.

The chapters cover everything you could possibly need to know and learn!

This looks like it would be a great book for the Mid Century Modernist. It would also be great for that budding interior design student. What better way to learn about this era of design!
