50s Decorative Art & Blue Velvet

"50s Decorative Art"
edited by Charlotte and Peter Fiell

I got this book the other day.  I like it for its design information and the fact that it flat out tells you that it's just a platform to start from.  It has tons of pictures.  It covers furniture, textiles, lighting, glass, china, home design, and some other stuff.  If you want some ideas for a more retro home, I would suggest this book.  Understand the shapes and design elements, then make it your own!

Have you heard and seen this video by Lana Del Rey for "Blue Velvet"?  I think its swell.
