A frame of sunshine colors softened the view of the sliding glass doors in this Pasadena, California poolside party room, without impeding either the outlook or traffic to the poolside terrace.
Paisley-patterned sailcloth — boldly colored with pink, yellow, green and white — was used for both the curtains and upholstery in this bonus living room, seen here in the mid-1960s.
The overcurtains were permanently tied back, and formed daytime shields for the sheer white curtains that are drawn across the glass at night.
The shape and cutouts of the yellow-lined valance was repeated in a second, all-yellow valance at the outer edge of the porch roof.
In the background of the room were four elegant dark wood chairs and a matching gaming table with a baize top that matched the carpet.
