As seen back in 1967, this Atlantic City apartment’s decor was crisp, cool and invigorating.

Built into the white window wall of the living room was a wealth of storage space, engineered to hold the stereo system, records, a serving bar, and a liquor cabinet.

That storage wall, a feature worked out by the interior designers, made possible the clean-swept, shipshape mood of this cool white apartment.

Furnishings were simple and classic — such as the white sofa piped in black, and the steel and leather chairs designed by Marcel Breuer. On the heavy glass table, there was a round green tree-like sculpture by Harry Bertoia.

Matchstick bamboo blinds, painted white, diffused the sunlight without shutting out the view of the beach.

The same blinds covered the door to the terrace, which faced the ocean directly across the boardwalk.

The shining, white-lacquered window wall, the white tiled floor — not to mention the blue Atlantic horizon glimpsed outside — all contributed to the sensation of being afloat.
