If you are into 1960's design, you are sure to love this informative and interesting book. It is loaded with many wonderful examples of mid-century modern homes and decor. It was written by Frances Melanie Obst (UCLA) and published by The Macmillan Company in 1963. (Zoom for larger views.)

From the Preface:
This book is written on the assumption that most people want a satisfying and attractive home. Since good design, discriminating taste, and a philosophy of planning are products of our values and thinking, these concepts are emphasized. The point of view of this writing is the contemporary influence on home furnishing – the sense of airiness and space, uncluttered lines and fine proportions, sensitive use of materials in natural colors and textures, and the organic interrelationship between life indoors and outdoors. This view is built upon one of the oldest architectural principles which is known today as “naturalism.”

This fabulous hardcover book measures 11.25 inches high, 8.5 inches long, 1 inch thick, and it contains 332 pages (not including the front matter). Excellent vintage condition.
