Mom chose a blue and white wall paper with a repeated eagle motif and outfitted the hutch with blue flow plates from her great-grandparents. She had Dad install a chair rail and painted the wall beneath it blue. Mom had a braided rug too, just like in this picture.
I loved that room.

Living room ideas included this wild gingham check motif! Love those toile' fabrics.
The couch and chair and even the tables look similar to what I grew up with. We even had a white painted fireplace for a while.
This more elegant room has drapes similar to ones Mom had in the later 60s, a Jacobean influence. I always loved the camel back rolled arms sofas and owned one for many years.
