I have checked out from the library Handmade Modern: Mid-Century Inspired Projects for Your Home
by Todd Oldham. It’s a fun book with loads of cool projects. I don’t have a lot of faith that the finished pieces would turn out that nice (especially if I’m making them) but it does have a lot of interesting ideas and good tips. And fun rooms like this…
Best part though is that it reminded me of this super cool Christmas present Tim got me a few years ago that I have resting down in the basement – the complete set of The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement. Published in 1970, "the complete A-Z encyclopedia answers every decorating question — solves every decorating and home improvement problem!"
Volume 2 AME-BAS is one of my favorites. Covers art, atrium, attics, avant-garde, banquettes…
Every time I get these books out I get so sucked into them – such great stuff!

These books are going to come in very handy when we find our perfect 70s dream house!
