Simplicity Steals Show in Home Decorating Dramas
____ " ■
BY EDNA MILES
TLECfANT simplicity is the keynote in today’s decorating themes.
Ji* There’s nothing stark or barren-looking about truly modern
room settings only a clean-cut, dramatic look as the designs of
furniture* and' fabric are allowed to take the spotlight instead of
The unfurnished-barn look that some faddish modernists
achieved in the early days of functional furniture is out, too. Up
to-date decorators—amateur and professional—are striving for tne
warm, home-like interior of grandmother’s days—minus the
If you’re dissatisfied with the old-fashioned look of your home,
the first step is not the tossing out of every piece of furniture you
own_as many homemakers sometimes would like to tne
elimination of accessory furnishings that don’t actually add any
thing to the general decorating scheme.
Ranking high among these are unsuitable wedding presents, such
as lamps, vases and candlesticks, which many homemakers wrongly
feel they must keep on display for all of their married lives.
When choosing new pieces for your home, determine in advance
jusst what effect you’d like to achieve. This is particularly im
portant when your furniture must be bought piece-meal—a chair
this month, and a table later when the budget gets padded again.
It makes no difference what period or type furniture you select,
to long as you keep it consistent. Don’t mix traditional furniture
with abstract sculpture, for instance.
Whatever your choice, make Sure not only that the piece is
pleasing to the eye, but that it will make living easier for you as
Will. This is the secret of good design.

This handsome room spotlights the interesting design of furniture,
fabric and carpet rather than knick-knacks. Legs of table (above)
are curved, not only for airy grace, but to supply ample knee room
for diners seated at ends. Beauty is thus combined with function.
