Curtains
The modern window, with its huge panes of glass and simple framework, makes an insistent demand for curtains. Without curtains windows of this kind give a blank, staring appearance to the room.
Floors And Floor Coverings
In planning a room the color values should be divided into the natural divisions of the heaviest, or darkest, part at the bottom, which is the floor; the medium color tone in the middle, which is the wall; and the lightest at the top, which is the ceiling.
The Treatment Of Walls
Plain walls, whether painted, tinted, or papered, are more restful in effect and form better backgrounds than figured walls, simply for the fact that a plain surface is quiet, while a figured wall will be less of a background.
Artificial Lighting
To light a room successfully appropriate lights must be placed where they are needed to keep the feeling of balance and proportion and bring out the charm of the room by their relation to its furnishing.
Painted Furniture
The love of color which is strong in human nature is shown in the welcome which has been given to painted furniture. If we turn back to review the past we find this same feeling cropping out in the different periods and in the different grades of furniture.
Synopsis Of Period Styles
When trying to select furniture for the home, people often become bewildered by the amount and variety to be found, and, not knowing exactly what to look for in the different styles, make an inappropriate or bad selection.
