Conveutionable Limitations Have Been Lilted From Mouse Pain lev's Ail Ciii-nnd-ilrted conventional .color schemes do not, handicap the home modernlMr of today. Time was. for Instance, when fill sliultra. 1 ; hnrt to W p'aiiiled a dark green. Now a liny Era'y cottage may blossom forth with rose pink shinier.';, n orcam colored bungalow with ver- inllllon shntwrs, and a snowy white cottage with scarlet or sky- blue shutters and fi-ont door. Indoors, also, a painted floor is no longer expected to be a liverish brown or a bilious yellow—it, may be robin's egg blue, or buttcrcii)) yellow, or glossy black. In figuring out the paint scheme for the exterior, how should one S!o. about it? There is no doubt that a wise selection of colors will go tar towards minimizing bad architectural details, "and there Is :io rfobt tbnl bndly chosen color sehr-ines will not (jive chaim lo n house. Pnwcnl day tnslc/deinnmbi two- color schemes for the exterior, not three-color schemes." Also good taste suggests thnt rai- low of the trim be colored than used to to, especially when bright colors are used for the trim. Almost never does one see the bead or IKKL that " extends up the outer corner of a house painted n" contrasting color, as It used invariably to be. l^Ye- qnenily trim color Is confined to shutters, the front door, and window" nasties, oven" window frames, being given the body color. Never use pink shades or pale blue shades on a large house. Keep them for little houses. But that does not mean that bright blues, pale or strong greens, (lie reds and terra cottas ,nnd even yellows nnd oranges, may he used on large houses.
