This rustic living room decor from 1968 stood out thanks to its high ceiling filled with three gorgeous wood trusses painted black — a dramatic contrast against the painted white wood plank walls.

The floor in this comfortable country space was made from old red brick, and connected to a wide fireplace hearth set upon several stacked layers of matching brickwork.

The sofa, chairs and other furniture fabrics in the room were in various patterns of black and white, with some splashes of bright sunshine yellow.

The coordinating yellow rug in the conversation area in front of the fireplace tied that section of the room together.

Full-height sliding doors and glass windows offered an expansive view of the rolling countryside beyond, and simple white curtains can be drawn for privacy.
