Text Appearing Before Image:
rare—a good 3°2 AMERICAN HOMES AND GARDENS November, 1906 sideboard, clock, tables and chairs well ar-ranged. Now compare, if you will, theatmosphere of rest and quiet which hereprevails with the insidious discord whichjars so in Fig. 8. Perhaps there are no rules—no exactrules about the placing of furniture thatmay be applied scientifically. The thinghas too much to do with the inner suscepti-bilities to be treated scientifically. It issomething within, like love, that defiesanalysis while it distinguishes between likeand aversion with unerring intuition. It isthe cultivation of this art-conscience thatenables us to distinguish between what weought to do and what we ought not, so asto say to ourselves, This is right andThis is wrong, without a geometricalequation to refer to. The elements are again in accord in Figs.10 and 11. Both are a source of satisfac-tion to contemplate. The furniture is allgood and correctly placed, except for onediscordant note—the diagonal rug in Fig.
