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.
