The 1950s Home Decorator
'It is an extraordinary fact that the laundry where a housewife spends so many working hours is generally the most neglected and least attractive room in the house. Make the laundry light and bright, equip it intelligently, and one of the most onerous duties of the housewife will quickly become a simple, almost pleasant pastime'.
I sure am glad that they added the 'almost pleasant' part at the end! So you see parts of it are rather outdated, but on the whole it has some great tips still. I am starting re-upholstery classes soon so I will make sure to take extra care in the furniture suggestion chapter!
