If you haven't already seen the Flickr set of the 1970 book "Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement" uploaded by Sandi Vincent, have a look here. Whenever I look at old publications I try to spot familiar artwork and decor; while clicking through this set I found a few pieces that I recognized.
The above image shows an Ackerman carved wood panel that I came across at ModCats, see the piece below.
For more of Ackerman's woodcarvings see my post here.

Another Ackerman piece; this time, a hooked wall hanging titled Garden created in 1963. Below is the same design in the "cool" colorway spotted at LA Modern Auctions; Evelyn would create her designs using either a "warm" or "cool" color palette so home owners could better match their decor.

A woodcut print titled Fighting Cock #3 by Walter Henry Williams (1920-1998) hangs on the wood panel wall in this photo. The same print sold for $2000 at a Treadway Gallery auction in September of 2008.
I just posted about the set of Finn Juhl colored drawers seen in this photo. See it here.
There are also some great illustrations in the set. I always wonder if the artist was working from a photo or just created the settings from his/her imagination. Below are a few of my favorites.
