So much to love about this room!! The caption reads: “A colourful living-room decorated both simply and spontaneously. The hand-designed tapestries, cushions and curtains are all by the designer himself. Architect Egle Amaldi.” (much more after the jump…)
I found this image in another vintage book picked up recently, called: Living Spaces: 150 Design Ideas from around the World. Studio Vista/Whitney Library of Design. New York. Edited by Franco Magnani- 1978
Let’s take a closer look- I mean, SOOOO much awesomeness going on. First, check out the great bookcase. Love all the random elements that feel collected over time. Then there’s the great striped upholstery on the couch.
I love how he carried the stripe to line up from the curtain onto the wall- also there’s an accent of color on the bottom of the curtain too. Just a great cozy and colorful space that I would have loved to hang out in. I can’t find much more info about the architect, but if you ever come across this book- DEFINITELY get it!
