Nowhere in the home ir built-in furniture quite as valual le as about the fireside, for its use seems to give a certain "domestic* atmos which nothing in the way of furnish? ings looks well. Such a space may very often be fitted by a clever carpenter with a few low bookshelves painted or btained to match the surrounding wood bloom. Many house plants are chosen for the beauty of their foliage alone, and when this is tho case they should be displayed in the most effective man? ner possible. They should not be so placed as to screen the clusters of a geranium, the blossom of a rose or the flower of a camellia. It is also a great mistake to so srrange indoor plant.? that, though possessing n decorative appearance from the outside, they pre? sent anything but an attractive note at regards the decorative scheme of the interior. Broadly speaking, plants for indoors may be divided into two classes - THE BUILT-IN SEAT HERE, BESIDES BEING A CONVENIENT RESTING PLACE. HAS SERVED TO CONNECT AS A UNIT THE PILLARS LEADING INTO THE LIBRARY WITH THE WOODWORK OF THE STAIRCASE. pherel Window Opening Into Kitchen. The dining room may have a built-ir si?e'jo?;rd or buffet which will be verj serviceable. Many such buffets are built within alcoves or recesses de? signed by architects for the purpose, and they frequently include a tiny window or door which opens into the pantry or the kitchen and which will be useful to the maid who serves the table. China closets or cupboards arc particularly beautiful v??ahen built into a house, and, as in the library, excellent use may be made of the spaces which in many dining rooms exist at the sides of a mantel or a chimney piece. China Cupboard?? in Recesses. Low china cupboards may be built within the-e rt cesses, with their tops o^ a level with the shelf of the mantel. The glass tioors may be either plain or designed in any simple, beautiful pattern. Corner cupboards are often very beautiful as well as useful, and if the. woodwork of the dining room is white and the surroundings of a Colonial character one might copy the ancient corner cupboards built within certain New England houses and adapt the very simple and graceful designs of early American architects. When one is remodelling a house or a city apartment the use of built-in furniture will jftcn be helpful. Fre? quently there exists an awkward recess! or an alcove space which seems to defy any successful arrangement, and in - work, and the result will be a really valuable decorative asset. One Way to Utilize Unused Doorways. The spaces within unused doorways may sometimes be made into bookcases by being fitted with shelves and long, straight curtains hung upon a slender brass pole across the top. Where such space.'; are of sufficient depth they may even be made into closets' by the use of two vertical panels of lattice work hinged to open like doors. In some old-fashioned houses there arc frequently deep spaces or "reveals" within windows, and it would be simple, indeed, to build a window seat within : uch a space. Decorative Hat Hack. In the hallway of one old-fashioned country home a very decorative and useful, though simple, detail was had by placing a wide horizontal strip of wood upon the wall between two doors about live feet above the floor. The wood was painted white and upon it were fixed brass hooks, reproductions <*f old English brasses of the time of William and Mary or of Queen Anne. The res'.'l'.. was a very useful rack upon which to hang hats and wraps, and it agreed precisely with the quaint, old fa-?hior.ed character of the home. There in scarcely any room in the average licmc which could not be made more comfortable and far more distinctive by the use of simple built-in furniture, which even an ordinarily good carpen? ter could construct. FOR THE INDOOR GARDEN The Floral Artist Selects Not Necessarily an Abundance of Plants, but Those Which Harmonize with Each Other and with Their Surroundings. THE choice of plant? for the i?. door garden is dependent upoi many things. There are housi plants which require a high tempera ture, other.-: which thrive better wit; less heat, plants which require an abun dance of direct sunlight and which will not flourish a day without it, and other plants which do very nicely under less exacting conditions. Recently a grea'. interest has been shown in indoor gardening. The old fashioned plan of filling a window so full of plants that the glass was almost completely hidden by them has long since passed away. Surely with indoor gardens, as with everything else, a sense of disproportion is not a thing to be det>ired, or, in these days of an advanced knowledge of things artistic, to be tolerated. Nothing could be more out of keeping with harmony in dec? oration than a window full to over? flowing of house plants of all descrip? tions, set in nondescript receptacles. Agreement with Surroundings. The modern house decorator lias learned to avoid any sucn atrocious ar? rangements, and seeks to select plants for indoors with careful thought as to the details of foliage, flower, contras*. and suitability. Fur instance, omc would not place finc-lcavcd r.nd coarse ? leaved plants in close proximity ?"here the effect of contrast was not desired, nor would one place a delicately foli? ated plant in a room so stern and for? mal that the plant might seem like a stranded exotic. Again, scarlet-flow? ered plants would hardly be in keep? ing with a room decorated with crim? son wall paper or hangings; nor would it be well to place plants, such as tho tuberose or the oleander, whose flowers are strongly scented, in a very small room, as their fragrance is oppressive in the contined atmosphere of a small space. Musk is so offensive to many persons that, lovely little plant that it is, it would be well perhaps to omit it from the indoor garden list. On the other hand, there are plants whose flowers, though they exhale a pro? nounced fragrance, are not objection? able, for, while their perfume fi pene? trating, it is delicate. In this clasG of house plants may be listed the hya? cinth, the narcissus, the rose and th. lemon verbena. Select Some Perennially Flowering Fiants. When choosing plants for indoor use it is well to select some that will bloom continually, so that there will not be the u.ihappy contrast of a long no flowering pentad, following luxurious often Bsves the inanimate from be? coming oppressive. Great Variety from Which to Chooao. ?Following is a list of plants for in? door gardens from which selections may be made: Camellia, daphne, azalea, cyclamen, geranium, helio? trope, roso, fuchsia, myrtle, abutil?n, calla lily, cuphoa, oleander, jasmine, | solanum (Jerusalem cherry), lemon ; verbenn, hoya (wax plant), begonia, ' oxalis, amaryllis, hyacinth, tulip, daf fodil, narcissus, primrose, cineraria, ! stock, wallflower, gloxinia, pelargo- j r.ium, marguerite, petunia, francoa ' (bridal wreath) and Amazon lily (BttCkSrU Amazonia) among the flow? ering plants. Of course, there are other indoor house plants, but those mentioned above are most generally ' cultivated. As the hyacinth, the nar- , cissu.i, the tulip, the daffodil and the j jonquil are bulb plants they are to be considered for the flowers only, and not at all for foliage, in so far as prrmamncy is concerned. The camel? lia, the cineraria, the a;.alea and the cuphea had best be chosen only by ? those who have hothouses or con- ' eervatories. A list of ideal flowering plants, easily grown indoors, includes the geranium, | though its true blossoming season is. in sumrfler. Fuschia culturo is* not diffi? cult, snd although it is prone to bud dropping, this can be prevented if the watering is carefully attended to. There are both double and single varieties. The heliotrope is also known to ev? eryone, and is one of the delights of the indoor garden. There are a num? ber of varieties to select from. If "pinching?' is attended to the plants may be kept compact, although it it often ns lovely if allowed to ramble. The old-fashioned heliotrope (Ilelfa tropnat Pcrutrtstwtn) is the sweetest and most floriferou^. Abutil?n, the well known flowering maple, requires plenty of light and water in rummer, but not nearly so much in win/T. The sanderianum has especially beautiful foliage. Finally, the begonia is to be consid? ered. There are many varieties of this perennially popular house plant. With? out doubt the best winter begonia is the exquisite Gloia-e do Lorraine, which produc?s an abundance of pink flowers above its attractive waxen green foil age. It will thrive in a temperature as low as 66 dfgries F. The Gloire de Seealux is another beautiful pink be? gonia. The Hex begonia is the most popular indoor foliage plant, if we ex? cept the Boston fern. BEAUTY, UTILITY AND COMFORT ARE OBTAINED BY A MEAGRE USE OF EXTRA MILL WORK TO FORM THE BOOK SHELVES, LOUNGING PEAT AND MANTEL ABOVE THE SPACIOUS FIREPLACE. \ SERENE DIGNITY IS ODDED TO THE DINING ROOM WHICH CAN BOAST OF SUCH BEAUTIFULLY BUILT-IN FURNITURE AS THIS BUFFET. flowering plants and plants selectei for the beauty of their foliage. Occ-^ sionally beautiful flowers and foliagi are offered by the same plant, as, fo] instance, the very lovely waxen leave? and pink flowered begonia. Cultivated Only As Curiosities. Then, too, there are plants found in the indoor garden which are cultivated more as curiosities of the vegetable kingdom than as units of beauty. Un? der this heading would come, of course, the ice plant, the various spiney cacti and also the "hen and chickens" plant. There will always be those botan ically inclined who will take a great interest in such curiosi? ties of the vegetable kingdom, but thes'j niants need net be taken into more than passing consideration by the woman who selects her plants to help in carrying out a decorative scheme which rosy depend, upon floral or foliage feature? to infuse it with j that vestige of naturalness that so j oxalis, fuschia, heliotrope, abutil?n, begonia, primrose and cyclamen. These, as permanent floral "lares and penates," may be augmented from time to time throughout the various seasons b forced greenhouse plants in full he?? a, added for their immediate effect.1, e ness and display qualities. "Pinching" Wilt Keep Them Bushy. The geranium is too well known to need extended,description. In buying plants purchase only such as look strong, stocky and ?healthy. Lank, spindley plants should be refused. By "pinching" the plants may be kept bushy. As a general thing zonal gcran .-.urns are free from insect pests, ??.! :i nil ;ellow leaves should he rc :::o- cd. ? oxalis is easily grown, and is well known by reascn of the shamrock shaped lesf. The Oxalis tloribunda, with its rose-colored flowers, is the best for the indoor garden.
