Friday Back When.

Friday Back When.

Color is your most effective means of creating an attractive room. And the least expensive. Marvelous colors are available in low-priced as well as rich fabrics; unlimited in paints.

Dare to show courage and your personal taste in selecting color. Pay no attention to what colors are fashionable. If you are too timid, you risk dullness. By adhering to the principles of color harmony found in these pages you can feel confident.

Even practicality is no longer an issue. Luxurious- looking off-white tones are possible as basic colors today due to the basic fabric finishes and easily maintained floorcoverings.

Friday Back When is a weekly feature highlighting images and text from vintage decorating books. Today’s exert is from The Complete Family Interior Decorating Book, 1972.
