I am now the proud owner of a binder of large, vintage 1954 Armstrong advertising comps — created by Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn, Inc., and signed off by Max Banzhaf in Floor Division National Advertisements. Pretty cool, huh?
Meanwhile – readers had been asking for more living room ideas — and I found some great ones in here.
In this modern-yet-classic interior, the designer begins with a very neutral brown/wood backdrop, adding medium blue, chartreuse and smalled punch of red to the mix. Overall – a delightful yet easy-to-live with look.
Click to enlarge and there are some fun things to notice:
- Horses here and there
- Pinch pleats that don’t take themselves too seriously
- A peak into the kitchen, with the chartreuse carrying into that space
- Look at the floor as it also transitions into the kitchen; there’s a change in the tile color to redefine the new spaces.
Meanwhile, I’ll feature more from my proprietary stash (different from what’s in the books) over time.
