Although it may seem logical to think small when you are faced with a small room, it can be much more exciting to think big.
This glamorous silver living room — seen here as it was in the mid-1960s — looked twice its size because it held only two large pieces of furniture.
The room’s whole look was soft and chill
Those two sofas, plus four smaller pieces, were set against a background of silvery vinyl wallpaper. The effect doubled the visual space as well as a mirror.
Sofas and mobile ottomans that were covered in creamy white Naugahyde sustained the elegance of a color scheme that was once highly impractical and often perishable.
Nothing here purports to be anything it is not, yet the general glitter was as shiny as a diamond.
There was a crystal bead curtain at the window, and quartz and plastic bibelots had been placed on glass tables that were lighted from beneath — like aquariums — to intensify their gem-like sparkle.
Starting at the intersection of the two sofas, the fur-toned off-white rug by Regal had a criss-cross pattern with three different heights of pile.
The beautiful silver and cool white collage on the wall was by Mary Bauermeister, from the Galeria Bonino.
