Your uneven, woodsy site wants a rambling-roofed, close-to-the ground design, one that will look as if it grew there without much human help, that will take kindly to clambering vines and winding cobblestone paths and rustic seats in unexpected nooks under the trees. On the other hand, such a design in its turn would be quite out of place on a level, smooth-shaven lawn with a few fine trees rising here and there and trim, formal garden plots. This kind ofa site demands the dignity, the pure, severe lines of the colonial or semi colonial home. The same advance in adaptation to actual artistic and practical needs is shown in modern interior arrangement. Gone is the parlor with its hideous contorted furniture, the custom of leaving the best room in the house utterly unused except on rare oc casions. Instead we find the living room, a place where the truly beautiful is also comfortable to live with, where nothing is too nice for everyday, and yet every thing speaks to the guest of a high standard of culture and comfort.
