COTTAGE AMONG MAPLE TREES
Built Twenty-five Times In 1906.
This cottage home has been built in
almost every climate fiom Buenos Ayres,
South America to Dublin, Ireland It
is deceiving in appearance, looking as
expensive from the exterior as a house
that cost from $2 500 to $3,000. This cut
shows it standing among maple trees,
with maple trees* for a background, is
painted ivory white and the shingles are
Biainecl moss gie&n, -which gives the ex
teiior an effective appearance
The house is 24x24 feet 6 inches, ex
clusive, of the veranda across the fronv,
and I believe you will agree that the
arrangement is a splendid one Every
thing is convenient and every inch of
space is used to the best advantage
First story is 9 feet, second story 8 in
the clear, theie. is a 7-foot babement

beautiful, it is quite reasonable to

Here are some rules by which to go.
The most restful wallpaper is of one

rather bad for nerves, but is warm and
cosy, especially if patternless. Dark
browns and drabs depress sensitive folk,

quieting and soothing, Green is splen

writingrooms and libraries. Clear, but
not too vivid, yellow, we are told, pro
duces exhilaration and self-confidence.
Dining Boom Chairs.
Unless a dining room be finished in
Gothic style, with massive sideboards
to match, there is no reason for buying
high-backed dining room chairs. The
present way of serymg by having
things passed at tbjQ left while the
plate is withdrawn irom the right is
unhandy enough for'Tboth servant and
person at table with&it a high-backed
chair to provlaTfe-aaflttional chances for,

of large chairs may be given to the
father and mother at table, while if
there be an invalid or aged person the
stay at table should be made as com

cushions and shoulder rests.
For Chamber Windows.
Hand made- effects carry thru the
chamber draperies. Here the windows
have ruffled, lace trimmed curtains of
net, and inner draperies of mercerized
cotton taffeta, with a dot on a finely
corded ground, which are bordered with
appliea floral bands, cut in outline
from flowered chintz or cretonne. The
floral note sounds strongly in all house
fitting lore in bedrooms very natural
looking flowers are garlanded on wall,
frieze and draperies, and in hall and
library conventionalized flowers form
the motif in wall and floor coverings.

Bungalow designing is now recog
nized as a distinct branch of house
building, and it is a successful artist
who can cope with the seemingly
simple, but, in reality, difficult prob
lem. A bungalow no longer means
merely a country house or a mere
shack. To make the bungalow live
able and comfortable and at the same
time keep it simple is not a light task.
A Massachusetts architect has been
unusually successful with a bungalow
house, as it plight be called, for there
are two stories.
Outwardly it is a pleasing composi
tion in rough-cast plaster, with a low
projecting roof and a cedar trim. In
wardly it has all the charm of stained
walls, generous fireplaces and simple
furnishings. A small hall gives en
trance to a large living room, which in
turn opens into an equally spacious
dining room. The service part of the
house is worthy of attention as it is
especially well handled.
The house is furnished in a manner
best calculated to display its charm,
namely, in a rather severe way. The
furniture is stained to harmonize with
the trim, which in several rooms is
natural cedar waxed, but unpolished.
The living room has a fine big fireplace
faced with brown brick, and opposite
the fireplace is a circular bay window.
The woodwork of the house is partic
ularly fine, cedar and cypress being
used extensively. The hall is finished
in the former, the well-designed stair
case showing the grain of the wood to
great advantage. Browns and grays
with a little deep orange are the pre
In the living room and the dining
rom the rugs combine gray and black,
and yellow, which blend well with
plaster and brown stain. The lighting
thruout the house is by means of well
designed copper and iron fixtures. The
dining room, simple and complete, fol
lows the general scheme of the lower
floor. Mission furniture has been
chosen for the furnishing of this room.
Broad steps lead thru a long French
window onto the verandah, which
forms a portion of the side of the
The front part of the bungalow is
separated from the rear, which is used
for ervants' quarters and contains an
ample kitchen and servants' room. A
one side is a covered porch, used as an
outdoor living room.

of recesses and cupboards so necessary

Neither of the hot water plants nor the
steam has given as good satisfaction been
as efficient or economical as the combination

For any building containing ten rooms or
under I will not again put in anything ex
