“Made for Make-Up”

I love this article about dressing tables. I’ve been enjoying thumbing through home decorating magazines from the first half of the 1940s. It’s almost like time travel. You get a peek into what daily life was like for the magazine’s readers. I can picture a woman sitting at her kitchen table, leafing through the pages, and thinking— How shall I decorate my dressing table?

This article is from the February 1940 issue of House Beautiful. Scroll down for a closer look.
