6B--Sept. 3, 1972 Sunday Gazette~Mail Cha'lwton, W«t Vlr»lm»-- TRADITIONAL By Andy Lang The Associated Press Traditional in every respect on the exterior, this two-story house contains several contemporary features that fit in with today's style of living. Architect Herman H. York has arranged a conversation pit at the fireplace end of the living room with sliding glass doors leading to a rear garden. The pit makes the living area less formal, especially in this layout, which has the living room adjacent to the family room. Access to the pit is thus provided from either the living or family room, with two fireplaces, back-to-back, making both areas most attractive. In keeping with the informal atmosphere of the family room, a free-standing prefabricated fireplace is used in one corner. THE FAMILY ROOM is open-planned lo the kitchen, Week's House Contemporary Inside To Give Easy Living., Old-Time Charm with a sweep of 35' across both rooms. To add outdoor vistas, large glass areas are used in addition to the pass- through window in the kitchen itself. The location of the snack bar insures convenient service to both family room and dinette. Added luxury is evident here, as few houses have both dinette and snack bar. Surveys at women's housing conferences indicate a preference for a separate dining room even though, in many homes, this is the least-used room in the home. In this layout, such a room is provided with multipaned cottage- type windows overlooking the front lawn. IT is REFRESHING in a two-story house to find the stairway going up in some other location than directly ahead from the front door. This plan has the stairs hidden from the foyer. On the second floor, four bedrooms and two bathrooms are arranged with an impressive hall at the head of the stair. The main bedroom is planned 1 to provide wall space for twin beds and furniture, with a dressing area large enough to include a vanity table, walk-in closet and two other closets. The hall bath is of the split variety, giving dual use to this facility. There is a rear door in the two-car garage, as well as a door leading to the kitchen. The laundry, lavatory and closet areas are convenient to the kitchen and a service exterior door. There's an arched overhang above the garage lo subordinate the large opening re- nate the large opening required and, if the doors are painted or stained in subdued' tones, the attention of anyone approaching the house is directed toward the front entrance rather than toward the garage. __ With its modern interior and its traditional exterior, Design L-66 combines easy living with old-time charm. iKOMJLMI HJI Call the Parson, Get His Mix V Match Table Set By Steve Ellingson 18" xl8". . .18" x 24" . . . 18" x 30".. .this set of parsons tables in staggered sizes is yours from one do-it-yourself pattern! They're easy to m a k e and fun to decorate. . .brought to you by popular demand. Here is one of the really g r e a t interior decorating rages of the past few years. Basically, the parsons table is a square or rectangular table with apron and leg widths measuring the same. The design is very similar to that of early Chinese tables and was originated by and named for the Parsons School of Design in New York. Its chief virtue is simplicity. To give some idea of the variety of interior decorating possibilities, we have pictured 3 table finishes here with Dayle Haddon, featured in Disney's forthcoming movie, "The World's Greatest Athlete." One is painted in black and white 'wet look' enamel as a chess table. Another has a mod design painted in wild colors. The other is finished in oiled walnut. You can coordinate the finishes for a family Jook . . . or keep them different. Today, anything goes in this 'eclectic' age of home decorating and the tables will fit in with modern or period furniture.
