Hey Robin! Where in Idaho was Bing's retreat? Was it in Sun Valley? I love to see vintage magazines. When I was a young girl, my parents built an addition to our house. It was a "family room" and many of the ideas for the room came from the pages of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I still remember that room fondly. It had a cathedral ceiling, a dutch door that led to the back patio (loved that door) and a square bay window with a window seat and bookcases on either side.Love,Susan and Bentleyxxoo
That room is timeless - like your Cape Cod house!I always love a Dutch door, too.These vintage magazines are a treat!
Hi again Robin! Alpine Lake is in northern Idaho, north of Coeur d'Alene. It is absolutely beautiful up there. When Bing lived there it was probably even more remote than it is now. There are lots of glacier lakes up there and heavily forested mountains. Lana Turner grew up in that area of the state. Thanks for giving me the name of the lake so I could google map it!Love,Susan and Bentleyxxoo
Oh, I just love looking at olden magazines with homes featured. This looks like it could still be in style today.Be a sweetie,Shelia ;)
Will you look at that fireplace? How gorgeous is that! I wonder who lives in it now, and if they've kept it the way it was. Keep the old mags coming. I love Vintage Magazine Monday!
I wish I had a fun 60's rustic mountain retreat like that! :-)
Hi Robin! Love those vintage photos! I'm sure his home was as swanky as he was!Hope you're having a wonderful night!
I agree with the others, this style looks timeless to me also! It could easily be adapted to homes today. I guess ole Bing was a trend setter too! Wonderful old magazine!
wow, as best I can tell, that looks like a room that would be designed Today. Lovin the red checks~! I love all magazines but vintage are the best.. Thanks for sharing this with us..hugsSonny
