Vintage Tablescape Thursday

When I file my dissertation I want to spend a week in this house, having cocktails and appetizers by this fire place!  This amazing tablescape (floorscape?) is from the February 1969 issue of Sunset. The magazine doesn’t say much about where this house is located, other than it’s 25 miles from San Francisco and designed by architects John Arrison and Tajima Fuller.

    Wow! What a great room! I can practically hear them humming ‘Kumba-Yah’ as they lounge by the fireplace!
