1962 Decorating and Fashions

The May 1962 Family Circle Magazine had an article on the latest decorating trends. This wallpaper is AMAZING. It could be a Modern Quilt design inspiration.

 Orange and black. Blue and green.
 Colonial was the alternative to Modern. Complete with a quilt of course.
Traditional looking but with an interesting combination of patterns that would look very contemporary today.
A plainer look, more masculine, simple and elegant.

Clothing styles were also featured. I would love to get my hands on the floral daisy print in this dress!


 Simplicity sewing patterns


 A name I recall from long ago, Ship N Shore.
