Here, 1970s interior designer Hector Grant’s dramatic night sky living room decor took its colors from his discovery of a Japanese cotton batik.

Placidly stylish was this designer room, looking as if months of shopping and delivery delays had gone into its perfection.

Despite the professional look, everything shown inside this Chicago condominium came right off the Sears store floor back in 1971.

The indigo in a multicolor batik suggested the dark painted walls, matching slipcover fabric, and shag rug.

The batik itself is a brightener — two lengths paneling the wall, generous shirrings of it in Austrian blinds, draped to emphasize its oval medallion.

Further easy-to-come-by brightening: self-stick mirror tiles applied to the window revealed the clean, white contrast of campaign chests and Parsons tables.

Elsewhere in the room, note the light-piping acrylic sculpture as well as the self-stick vinyl floor tiles that simulated the wood grain of bleached walnut parquetry.
