Vintaeg home decorating: The fresh look in fabrics for spring 1965
From American Home – March 1965
Here they are — some of the most refreshing new drapery fabrics we’ve seen in many a springtime.
The strongest influence in contemporary fabrics is turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau. Then there are the Matisse florals, smashing and rather like cut paper patterns, and the bold two-color silhouettes like our sunflower.
Much in evidence are darker grounds. In color, the trend is either to uninhibited primary combinations — clean, clear and crisp; or to the grays, ochers and browns.
