THERE are numerous fascinating schemes for arranging sunrooms. One, which we’ve lately seen close to Philadelphia, was the results of enclosing a big piazza, projecting from an immense home located within the midst of lawns and groves.
The partitions are painted orange and striped with pale yellow; the flooring are lined with the brand new number of matting, which imitates tiles, and reveals giant squares of shade, blocked off by black. The chintzes used are in vivid orange, yellow and inexperienced, in a shocking design; the wicker chairs are painted orange and black, and from the immense iridescent globes of electrical mild dangle lengthy, orange silk tassels.
Iron fountains, great designs in black and gold, throw water over gold and silver fish, or homosexual water crops; whereas, in black and gold cages, vivid parrots and orange-colored canaries gleam by the bars. Iron vases of black and gold on tall pedestals, are crammed with trailing ivy and vivid coloured crops. Alongside the partitions are wicker sofas, painted orange and black, luxuriously snug with down cushions lined, as are a number of the chair cushions, in comfortable lemon, sun-proofed twills.
Right here one finds card-tables, tea-tables and smoking-tables, a writing-desk absolutely geared up, and at one finish, a wardrobe of black and gold, hung with an assortment of silk wraps and “wooleys”for an un-provided and chilly visitor, in early spring, when the steam warmth is off and the glass entrance open.
Even on a gray, winter day, this orange and gold room appears flooded with solar, and offers one a distinctly cheerful sensation when getting into it from the home.
