Text Appearing Before Image:
ow; trim, white; mahog-anjr doors. In this hall the architecture is decidedly Colonial and the color scheme of ourfirst suggestion is on strictly Colonial lines—yellow walls, mahogany doors, whitepaint and mahogany are an attractive combination. In a hall where the light isinsufficient, it is necessary to choose a light-producing color and in this connectionnothing is better than yellow, for it suggests sunlight. It also strikes a cheery noteof welcome especially suitable for a ball. Tints are also good, but shades should beavoided in dark rooms. The second suggestion for the hall combines yellow and green; yellow in theceiling, green in the side wall. In a well-lighted hall green is very satisfactory,but here as elsewJiere in a house the color schemes of the surrounding rooms mustbe taken into consideration. No room shoidd be decorated and furnished in-dependently of the others, else discord will result. Oriental rugs with a soft blending of color are advised with either scheme. 40

Text Appearing After Image:
Plate III. Living-Room PLATE II. LIVING-ROOM Suggestion No. 1, as in illustration: walls, soft red; ceiling, ivory; trim,light Flemish; tiles, green; curtains, green; rug, red predominating. Suggestion No. 2: walls, light orange; ceiling, ivory; trim, deep green; cur-tains, old blue; rug, green with old blue and orange border. Here we have in our first suggestion, a decided but not a strong red. It ischosen to blend with the fine oriental rug which has a good deal of the soft pinkish-red used so effectively by rug makers of the East. This red is particularly effectivewith Flemish woodwork or with all stains except very light ones. Green har-monizes with this red, and green will be found in the tiles and curtains. A more radical treatment is seen in suggestion No. 2. Orange forms thewalls, while blue and green are used in the harmony, the trim being green. PLATE III. living-room Suggestion No. 1, as in illustration: walls, medium olive; ceiling, slate green;trim, olive brown; curtains.
