READING LIST ON HOUSE DECORATION AND
The list of really good authorities on this subject is a small one. It is true that “any specific advice in regard to furnishing and decorating is apt to be ludicrously unpractical;” but it is also true that “every fresh suggestion has its value” though it may not exactly suit the taste or convenience of the reader who receives the suggestion. Mrs Alice Morse Earle's advice on this class of books is admirable. She says: “Get the book and learn what you can from it, but reserve to yourself a very keen judgment about many things that it advises."
