FURNISHING THE HOME
Conducted for The Star
BY ELIZABETH STETSON AND GENEVIEVE HENDRICKS
English Tudor Sun Porch.
BY ELIZABETH STETSON.
Our most popular type of house is
still that of the. Colonial or early Fed
eral (1780-1840). We see that style,
whether of frame, stucco, stone or
brick, more often in our city streets
or countryside than any other.
But we find also houses of irregular
design, with peaked roofs, half timber
ing and casement windows every
where. These we call “early English”
houses, by which we mean reproduc
tions in general effect of the houses
built in England from 1500 to 1700.
These houses are marked on the out
side by their irregular shape, half tim
bering and small-paned easement win
dows. On the inside these houses are
customarily finished in rough plaster
and wood paneling.
Tin walls of a sun poreh in such a
bouse should be finished in rough
plaster, the color being a light tone of
tan, yellow or gray.
- Medallions in Windows.
The windows are casements, with
either diamond or square panes, no
pane being over R inches. Ts one
wishes to give the true Elizabethan
effect an occasional pane nr glass may
he treated with a medallion. These
are usually crests, coats of arms or
sometimes small figures of different
colored glass set in lead. The medal

may be painted on the inside of the
pane. This latter method is suggest
ed because in this way a very quaint
effect may be had for a small sum.
The windows are not very long and
are set in so that the silts are about
3 feet and R inches above the floors.
A series of these casements stretch
across the outside walls of the room.
The windows in this style of room are
set deep in the walls, so that, the sill
presents a broad shelf on which plants
may be placed in Winter to give a
more cheerful effect.
The ceiling may he beamed or of
rough piaster and the floor dark in
finish, while all woodwork should be
also stained dark and waxed. For
furniture here one should use the
heavier, cruder English pieces, rather
than the all-prevailing wicker sets.

Jacobean stool has been placed under
the windows. The seat is covered
with a cushion of bright red linen,
which echoes the red In the printed

of the room, as the wing chair came
in a decade or so later than the time
in which this tvne of window and fur
niture were used. Comfortable chairs
as we know them were not in exist
ence in Tudor England. The seats of
their chairs were of plain wood and
they padded them witn Heavy cush
ions in order to soften them. But as
time went on and furniture was
evolved along lines or beauty and
comfort the upholstered chairs came
into being. We first find them in
England in the reign of Charles 11.
His early life in France had given him
a taste for luxury which was not com
