ON COLOUR- SCHEMES. Colour makes or mars a room, and many in- expensive houses have. been made sumeftsful by the intelligent use of this powerful factor. Harmonious colouring does not necessarily imply a room where everything matches. The blue rooms of the eighties, where walls, carpets, curtains, and upholstery, were all of one shade, exist to-dny only in fiction. They were never cheerful, imparting by some subtle power their own indigo colourmg to the moods of the occu- pants. The blue-room, pure simple, is not now in favour. But we are all familiar with the very green room. Green is nature's own colour, and none other is so restful, so desirable; but it can be abused. Nature makes use of russets, of yellow-browns, 'of red-browns, of bronze shades, of greys, of soft purples, of pome- granate tones. These maybe transferred to the walls of our houses, and if rightly placed are very effective. Rooms that are brightly lighted .Are more satisfactory when the colour schemes are comparatively low in tone, and dark rooms are made more livable by colours in a higher key.
