I found this copy of a vintage Better Homes & Gardens Decorating book at an estate sale once upon a time and I was so thrilled to have found it!

The book is stocked full of practical decorating know hows and it is so well organized and put together. I mostly just love flipping through for all the photos though. So much mid century modern furniture to drool over! There's some serious ugly too... but let's just focus on the loveliness...
