"Color Opens the Door" proclaims a Benjamin Moore consumer brochure from 1954. A sprightly black red and gray color scheme puts this room in the distinctively modern camp as do the vertical blinds. The television set is a relatively new item. The black-and-white check of the sofa upholstery is picked up in wallpaper or possibly fabric lining the open shelves of the wall unit.
