This sweet red and blue prairie-style bedroom decor was echoed all over this space thanks to three different coordinating fabrics.

In the late 1940s, Wishmaker chose two traditional calico patterns From the Metropolitan Museum’s collection, and reproduced them.

There was a floral print on a red background (called Bombay), a small blue and white stylized geometric pattern (called Calcutta) also on red, and a plain denim-colored blue cotton.

The decorative trio showed up on the bed, upholstered chair, dressing table skirt, window curtains, closet accessories.

The blue had the most play in ruffled form — it showed up on the pillow shams, bed skirt, boudoir chair skirt, as curtain trim… and even as an added frill around the mirror.

The room’s woodwork and trim (including ceiling molding) were decorative with a classic English flair, rather than the flat paneling that was so popular at the time.

That lightly stained wood helped give the room the kind of perfectly comfy, cozy country feel that has fans in every era.
