An exceptional, oversized mid-century design book: "House & Garden's Complete Guide to Interior Decoration" Copyright 1960, by the editors of the always elegant House & Garden Magazine. Rare to see this edition with it's dust jacket present, but this one does have it's dust jacket. Self described as "A practical and authoritative encyclopedia of ideas for decorating rooms of all types and period." It definitely skews midcentury modern, but there is plenty of beautiful Hollywood Regency and traditional 60's decor to make fans of all types of design happy.
