    Excerpt from The House Beautiful and Useful: Being Practical Suggestions on Furnishing and Decoration

    AT the Publishers' request, I have endeavoured to give in a fairly brief form some notes for the benefit of those who are faced with the problem of decorating 'and furnishing a home. There have been several works issued in recent years with a similar object in View; but their authors, as far as I can discover, have not kept in view the all-important ques tion of cost. To remedy this omission is one of the factors governing the appearance of the present volume.

    The ideal method of furnishing a home is to employ the services of a talented Architect and Craftsman, so that every piece of furniture and every scheme of decoration is an individual production - the only one of its kind - expressing the owner's taste and individuality.

    Unfortunately, such an ideal is only possible in the case of wealthy people. Nine-tenths of the population must continue to buy articles of furniture which are made to pattern by the dozen, and to employ schemes of decoration that have their counterpart in many other dwellings. It is the object of the following chapters to give some guidance to the selection of such furniture, and to indicate more or less desirable directions for decorative effort. While the majority of people cannot afford to employ an Architect or Craftsman, the person of average intellect and a certain amount of taste can do much for himself.
