The gracefully landscaped lawn, at Ihe rear, .stretches away lo Ihe swimming pool. Inside, where Elsie de Wolfe designed the decorations, the aim was "to marry the surrounding landscape to the interior." . . • To achieve this effect, the three most important rooms—the central living room, dining room and library—were laid out ou one long axis, on the old Fiend chateau plan. • The result is light and spacious and. very largely, "it's al' dene with the aid of mirrors." There are mirrors everywhere in the house—a fireplace made entirely ol black mirror with a mirror mantle and hearth; mirrors outlining doors and windows; mirror screens; mirror furniture; mirrors hanging on the walls. There is glass, too, lhal is not mirrored—-ribbed glass for balusters of Ihe stairway in tlie living room and a large bowed window made ^entirely of. glass from floor to ceiling. • .
