From a practical guide to decoration, published in 1973 by Reader's Digest, we find this vintage home shot via Flickr. We're for more of a timeless style, and this photo screams of a particular time. Nonetheless, we were able to list some lessons learned from this vintage practical guide:
- Open shelving as spatial dividers: lets light through while storing and displaying objects.
- Varied pads of light create "rooms" within a room.
- We'll always like a white palette with bursts of color, no matter what the period.
- That built-in seating looks like it could double for guest sleeping.
What do you think - what practical lessons are to be learned from this 1970's guide? We'd love to Flickr Find your present-day Montreal homes - please just label your Flickr photos with "apartmenttherapymontreal".
