of blue which she has done so much
to popularize among British women
extends even to her new home,
In the house, recently decorated
under the princess’ own supervision,
the shade of blue predominates.
Princess Mary’s ideas of the ideal
home are distinctly modern, and as
a result several walls have been re
moved in Harewood house to pro

During the course of rebuilding the
princess has made at least three

supervise the work.
One of the principal interests is
the nursery on the top floor, also
painted blue, where her two little
sons will play. Tiny hunting scenes
will decorate the nursery walls.
