A nest of decorative ta'- blcs or several tlll-lop tables aid the homo maker who entertains frequently, for these, tables are so Hght they can be moved about easily and save guests the discomfort of balancing refreshments on their laps, In one ralher small living room decorator put seven tables—a satele? table, a coffee table, n table, and n nest of four brilliant, rod Chinese lacquer tables.

Home Owners Now May Do Something About Weather Besides Talk. Twenty-four years ago Mark Twain made his famous remark Ilial the weather was the most discussed .subject in the world, but bowls—nil of which nre decora live as w«)l as useful and do no cost any more limn ugly ash con tainers. fireplace mantels constitute an other living room problem. The common mistake is to put so many articles on the mantel that It gives the room a museum or messy appearance, because the fireplace is about the first thing that catches Die eye. The rule of three articles, one in tlie center and one near each' end of the mantel, is the safest to follow. '. other loss simple groupings consist of five or seven articles. A particular arrangement tha thas been greatly admired consists of an old map hung above the mantel, a ship model placed at the center of the shelf, with a Chinese tea jar on either side. In selecting dccora- tlans for your mantel it is better to choose unusual objects, as commonplace things do not deserve such display. Sittings as it may seem, .tome people, never have a fire in their fireplaces and the bricks are us spotless ns when they were Lild. It is impossible to have a livable room niul a spotless fireplace of glaring bricks. If you don't want lo have an oimi nre at least blacken the bricks at the back of the fireplace with store polish so thai, the room won't have a stiff mmscd atmosphere. Perhaps it is even more hnpor- lanl lo tell what not lo put. in n room, for the worst offense of n room is to look over-crowded. Do sure that, you have enough clear space in the room to allow for (raffic and to display every piece 01. furniture lo advantage. .
