  2. Dear MissShitsville,

    I am certain we are kin somehow. OK, mebbe not–I am a New England Yankee after all. That said, I am delighted with the pics on this page for two reasons:

    1–they speak for themselves in terms of awesomeness

    2–they look WICKED familiar to me: lighting, editing, subject matter, styling. You may be interested in why.

    I have in hand a 1956 Better Homes & Gardens Decorating Book, and dammit if the shots in my book do not look like the handiwork on this page. The funny color selections, the weirdly empty rooms, the barfy mix of neutrals.

    Should we plan to swap some jpgs? I have over 300 in my book, though it is unlikely you will want more than about 30% of them. I can tell you that mid-century had a ghastly side as well.

    Then again, you might enjoy that immensely.

    Warm regards,
