Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 8, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Saiiinlay, April S, THE LETIHUUDGE DAILY HERALD C r' i If Mansfield T last we are beginning to feel that we have come into our own, architecturally, in uome-bulldiug. VTc have borne with the accusation 'that tho-architecture of our houses is [borrowed every quarter- of the often presenting a hopeless of borrowings under sine self-same roof-tree; we have had ;to, because there they were scattered over tbe" Anne cot- tages. Swiss chalets, Italian villas, In- dian bungalows and art nouveau mon- strosities, some of them at-peace with their environment, more of them im- portunate aliens. But. from this Indis- criminate adoption there have evolved styles iu. American architec- "bearing stili suggestions of their but so modified and adapted to our needs and ideals that they are -now recognized as striking the note of .Individuality so long denied to -us. There Is a directness of design and e sincerity of treatment In these twen- tieth century homes that is most sat- isfying. It has been said, that "There la a subtle relation- existing between (home architecture and tbe human heart, and the expression of that rela- should be the ideal of. domestic architecture." At least we may be to be approaching that ideal, be cause primarily we ann insisting thn our homes express simple beauty ant the kitchen- behind it and the .sometimes stencilled iu a conservative dining room behind Lhe living Any of these arrangements jTQom.

They form n pleasant contrast tr> the ce ment, and are sometimes also fo the roofing.

The fireplace of olive-creen. tile had buiit-in bookcases on either side, with two windows above it, nnd [he dull red walls harmonized with the woodwork of dressed redwood left In its natural color. Sliding glass oors between the living room and the en were a unique feature- that ftir- hnr gave the impression of spacious- ness. is surely the day of the built-in 'urniture. It owes its vogue not onh :o the artistic demands which it meets so gratifyingly. but to the practical de- mands for compact utility.

In nothing so much as in the new fireplaces does the creditable tendency to express ourselves in the materials themselves rnther than in ornamenta- tion show itsolf.

The portieres wore of (lull creon arrns with a motif suggest fid with tho wall paper and carried out in the same low tones in appliqu''.
