Floral retro sheets & bedding (1970)

Spring is bursting out all over. While the tulips are blooming in the garden, a gal can add the look of spring to her bedroom.

The secret lies in a collection of sheets, towels and bedspreads designed to go together and make a decorating impact that just won’t stop.

One is Fieldcrest’s “Frost Flowers,” sure to add flower power to a room. This pattern is over-printed on solid color sheeting to bring the design into bolder relief than usual.

Manufacturers of towels, bedspreads and sheets, recognizing that women often want to make changes without doing a complete redecorating or refurbishing job, have come up with bright, colorful offerings to whet any women’s decorating appetite.

One has introduced a new collection of bedspreads in designs ranging from elegant to traditional to plain. Some are dazzling prints; others are contemporary abstracts or traditional Jacobean. All are available with matching curtains, valances and table rounds to easily achieve a total look.

Another has coordinated sheets, towels and bedspreads, making it possible to choose a design for both bath and bedroom that is dramatic.

In any event, when the heat of summer arrives, the urge to decorate will diminish as the move to outdoor activities begins. It will probably take the first cool fall breeze to bring the restlessness to the fore once again.
