One of my favorite interior books. Very appealing '60s and '70s interiors that seem to belong to interesting people. This book has an authenticity and appeal that you will not find in other interior books of the period, which often lean too far in the direction of bland professionalism or tacky manufacturer promotions. Also a glimpse of European family life and mores. Veterans of 1970s Northern California will recognize certain tropes, such as diagonal wood siding, rainbow murals, and children with Free to Be You and Me records.

This book is awesome! I will never have to buy another home improvement/interior design book ever again. The designs are contemporary as well as classic. There are even instructions to build furniture, make your own bedspreads, and hordes of other interesting design projects.

I recently picked up this book and I am amazed at my investment! There are more than 1,000 pages of color pictures, projects and ideas for anyone that is looking to decorate their home the Do-It-Yourself way. From selecting colors to adding the finishing touches, this book not only gives ideas, it shows you how to complete the projects as well. This is the best book that I have found for home decorating and remodeling; and it has something for everyone reguardless of style or skill level.

This book is decidedly dated yet still manages to be relevant by today's decorating standards. Good style never goes out and although there are some glaringly bad pictures of the 70's heavy-handed approach at it's worse (think crazy patterned wallpaper and excess), there are tons of pictures and details that inspire. The original House Book is still one of my all-time favorite Terence Conran books.

Although this book was published in the 1970s, the concepts of combining various textures, colors, materials, and their placement in each space of your home are timeless. The photography is amusingly dated, though. Even so, the staged designs on each page are delicious to flip through - it look very much like an Ikea catalog... but from the 1970s!

The first time I saw this book was c. 1980 along with the Kitchen Book at a neighbor's house. I was hooked. In 1981 we put an island in our kitchen insipred from one of those books. Imagine that! At the time I could not afford to buy the books now with the vision of Amazon/Used I can buy the house book as I picked up the
kitchen book at a book sale. Yes, it is going down memory lane but still you can
pick up cool ideas. Wonder where IKEA got its insipration?! Imagine my joy that I was able to visit a Conran Store (1981) on Long Island. It is long gone, too bad.
Was my intro to Marrimeko fabric etc.
