The Home of My Dreams
Every one has a "home of my dreams."
It is our ideal. Why not strive to make it real?
• # *
Homes differ as people differ. Often husband and wife
do not have the same dream. They pull apart. They struggle
good naturedly. Eventually the "dream home" comes—a
softening of each dream and a harmony of both. At any rate
it is "our home," and we live happily ever afterwards.
Perhaps some dreams are nightmares—some of these
"home dreams." They may picture furniture and decorations
that would shock to tears the soul of an artist. For these
dreamers it is time to awake, to see, and to learn the kind of
furniture that should go into "the house in good taste."
The House in Good Taste is a very plain house. A very
comfortable house. A very restful house. A house where
nothing clashes. A house of harmony, of repose, of balance,
of beauty, of symmetry. Yet a house of originality, of charm,
of individuality, of personality. A house to live in, to play
in, to rest in, to sleep in, to love in, to work in, to grow in—
and to dream in; the "home of my dreams."
Would you see this home? See the furniture In the
WANAMAKER AUGUST SALE. See how good It is, how
relatively Inexpensive at its August prices. See how the
individual pieces group themselves together, how they settle
into place—in that dream home.
Monday h a Day of Courtesy opening the August Sale, on
the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Galleries of the New Building.
