Interior Design student work

"A good decorator not only plans and schemes, but he also knows how the job is done."
- Albert Hadley

The following images are from an Interior Design student's work circa 1948. This was part of the package I received in the Vintage Indie Swap from my secret partner.




Very fun to look through....especially the budget!

Hey Harriet said...

Oooh! I'm loving those prices!

& Geeez, that secret partner parcel must have been big! Are you still unpacking it ;)

Ha. Very cool! I bet that was a fun exchange for the swap. And you're right...the budget *is* fun to look at. I need to make one of my own and see if I can beat those prices. LOL.

Utter coolness! And I'm in love with the color palette. What a wonderful thing to own.

I do love looking at that older stuff. The budget is the best! I have a copy of an old carpentry quote from about 60 years ago where the carpenter was charging $2.10 per hour for his labor.

That's so cool! I guess a good colour palette is timeless ☺

All old is new again it seems! I would have that entire plan from the layout right down to the fabric choices. But especially the budget :)

Oh how fun! I love seeing how ideas and trends have changed (and some that have stayed the same and come back).
