Fugly, or Fantastic?

I secretly love this afghan / blanket thing from the Time Life Art of Sewing series. The series is a 10-volume guide to sewing and knitting that came out in the 1970s, and has some amazing design and photography. Not cheesy, more glam and retro-licious. I think this afghan, knit in the HoJo color ways, could look amazing in a really pared down, modern bedroom, with no totchkes or knick-nacks to give a sense of fustiness or grandma-ness.

what do you think?

love the colors... not crazy about the crochet... maybe you could update it in the details?
making with a nice fiber will also help turn that trash design into designer treasure...

I think it would look really cool in one color in different shades, it will look ultra modern.
