the perfect wedding gift?

Following on from the  extended holiday,  courtesy of Will and Kate,  I take time out to go through yet another book kindly on loan from my big sister.




This book,  published in 1956,  was presented to my sister's mother-in-law on her leaving work to get married.  How times have changed.

All feminism discussions aside (as this is neither the time nor place)  it does however, have some killer illustrations,  fabulous furniture ideas and some gloriously British (ie.  not quite as cool as the Scandinavians) room layout suggestions.  Very of it's era - and somewhat contemporary too.










Elle Deco it may not be - but maybe someone should have given a copy to Wills and Kate!
