HINTS FOR THE HOME
BY NANCY HART
The background of architecture
id furniture may endure for a long
ne—for generations, perhaps,—but
the accessories of the home change
style with amazing frequency.
Pictures wrongly framed or hung
too high, with peaked wires; bric-a
brae that is passe, or arranged in a
way no longer considered “good"—
such small decorative errors as these
brand the heme as out of date far
quicker than do i.s furniture or rugs.
The sofa cushions, reading lamps
and erstwhile library j,carf; the deco
rativo screen fittings for the dining
room—look to them carefully, for
subtle changes have been at wort
among them, refining, simplifying
making them to the home what her
