A study in angles in this 1954 beach cottage

Here is another interior design study from my 1954 Armstrong flooring ad collection produced by Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn, Inc. (insert forefinger backwards into mouth, make popping sound.)

What I really like about this image is that…it is a study in lines and angles and planes… and how their use can keep your eye flowing through and around a room. The blue horizontal wall on the window wall…the windows themselves – running vertically, then horizontally…the strong vertical lines of the wall to the right…the angular fireplace and exhaust fan…the angled kitchen counter…and of course, the Armstrong floor, which itself presumably sweeps up to the next room (at left). This has the vibe of a vacation cottage on the beach – sky blue on a window wall…to merge with the real sea and sky…is perfect in this environment.

Nicely done!
