London. Lewis E. Nunn, Builder and Decorator. 1938.
Rectangular booklet 5 1/2 x 8 1/8 inches featuring creative uses of wall and ceiling paper to achieve striking results in eight model rooms: two bedrooms, four lounges (living rooms), a dining room, and an entry. A full page color illustration of each room is accompanied by one or two samples (5 base samples and 3 base and accent samples) of the paper employed on the walls (most often textured) to achieve harmonious and visually compelling results. Toning to bottom edge of front cover. The bedroom titled "The Lyndale" ("a happy arrangement of two wall papers in the modern manner") has been inserted in the booklet upside down; otherwise, very good clean condition. This distinctive Lewis E. Nunn booklet is a remarkable example of creative design employed in marketing high-quality wall and ceiling coverings and would make an excellent addition to a design library as it captures both the look and feel of Deco wall decor and features a wide range of home interiors and furnishings.
