A short, transitional perlod-^for An* he's reign dated from 1W2 only to 1714 —yet this early eighteenth century style registers a most popujar fashion trend now. sit is related to periods both preceding and succeeding these dates, and is thus adaptable In homes where the ,iate seventeenth century influence* hold forth, as well as In those who ( "go eighteenth century" of & later date, it is also adaptable with early American groups because of the' strong influence of England, the mother country, on all American activities. After the reign at William and Mary a decided Dutch Influence Was felt in English furniture, and the most dis* tinguishlng feature of the entire Queen Anne style, the cabriole leg, was originally a Flemish characteristic. Its' swelling knee and tapering ankle became widely accepted In Anne's time. The graceful sweep of this leg is called the.cyma curve, (from the Greek cyme, meaning Wave) and the same contour Is employed on'the tops of Queen Anne pieces where two cyma curves meet, on the sides, and on the lower edges, as for Instance, on dressing tables, and. lowboys: The oyma Is merely a rhythmic, curved moulding with'a reversed curve. It is important because Queen Anne designs ushered in curvilinear furniture to a world that had known only heavy, austere, straight-line pieces. While Holland was the parent of this popular member, Flemish cabrioles never attained the beauty of the smooth, sculptured product created In Anne's best period. • • • Perhaps the real coir.iort that came Into being for the first time during this age was due to the fact that women began to influence furnitute making, a departure that had never been known before. Court ladies amused themselves by working needlepoint patterns as early as the Orange reign, when Mary's domestic Inclinations affected the court, and consequently, the nation. Printed fabrics were not yet invented, but the gorgeous sampler and needlepoint designs made by hand later became the In aplration of machine-made patterns. The quaint, , comfortable styles of chairs originating in Queen Anne's period fit the body; their backs arc sloping and curved, and the seats broad. So different was this move nient, that/ the- period Is said to re veal a change 'in furniture making that Is revolutionary. Shortly after 1714, the' death of Anne, however, this pleasant simplicity departs, giving way to designs 'that were ornate and often ,not nearly so interesting. Several names stand out during these twelve years—Christopher Wren, the architect whom Arine commissioned to rebuild all' the churches In England Inigo Jones, another architect, and Grinling Gibbons, carver whose mlr ror frames and other car.vlng effects have -been preserved all these years a? precious souvenirs of the past. The rhythm found in Queen Ann< furniture was also seen In the sym metrical architecture of the sam< date. Windows, doorways, panels, al kept a careful balance that made foi orderliness of - background which thi restrained furnishings did not betray While the-richest fruition of all new developments In furniture occurred in Englahd,.--through the fostering care of so many large estates, America was quick to copy new Ideas from th'- mother country. Not having the sam wopds at their disposal, American craftsmen executed Queen Anne cym curves in fruit woods. Any number of color schemes tha flatter the wood tones can be success /fully used In the room where thi Queen Anne suite is placed.

The modern vogue for color ex tends even to. the most utllltaria portions of the home. A few year ago the bathroom was merely usefu and sanitary. Today it is also beau tlful, due to the magic touch of color In the newest bathrooms the fixture are of delicately tinted porcelain which blend pleasantly with colore tilea. Gayly bordered linens hang up on the towel racks, rubberized fabric In cheerful designs are used to shower curtains, and washable wove rugsj in harmonizing shades, com plete delightful color schemes. A bedroom furnished In modernist manner opens Into a bath which I conceived In the same spirit. The con ventlonal plumbing fixtures are re •placed by unusual shapes of new, sur prising vigor. The positive color used In the decorations are clear an vibrant, and the ornamental design used are simple but forceful. Whatever the style or type of th bedroom an adjoining bath may b planned to harmonize perfectly wit its decorative scheme. The problem of achieving a bath 'room which looks modern and up-to date in a house built some years ag requires thought. The old-fashlone all white bath is now considered un interesting, but an appearance o modern chic may be given to it by th simple means of changing the acces sories to new and up-to-date ones glowing with color. A dull bathroom on the north side o the house may be made to seem brigh and sunshiny when even a sma amount of light la allowed to flltx through thin voile curtains of yellov or orange. Curtain colors may be re peated in the patterned rug of cotto chenille on the floor, in matching bath mat, towels and wash cloths, und 1 narrow lines of vivid enamel edgln the white painted woodwork.

"All Frank's books and papers are In there, anyway," she added'as she settled down with a magazine in the living room. They seemed to find shop talk very engrossing and Katherine became interested in a magazine story. When she put the magazine aside saying, rather like "a congressman addressing his constituents, "just a beginning. We are going to refurnish this house. These tables are a sort, of opening gesture." Then in answer to Kitty's expression, "That change is not going to be made in the office for another,six months and Shadwell will be here again in the spring.
