HOUSEHOLD linens are a point of particular pride with
the clever and careful housewife and all home

If you have chosen a maize yellow for hanging in one
room, and have matched it in coverlets, you may want a
pair of maize sheets to accompany them. For other rooms
there are the dainty colors of rose, apple green, and a blue
that suggests powder blue, but is lighter in tint.
Bronze Damask for Background
Matching or contrasting colors in damask is a fine oppor-1
tunity for the exercise of one s individual taste. Bronze
damask makes an excellent background for certain tints in
glass, gold flecked Venetian glass, wistaria, or the Burgun
dy shades of red. v
There are very good greens in damask, deep gold colors,
rose and lavenders, too. The quality and sheen of damask

About Breakfast Sets
One must decide and choose dresser and buffet scarfs,
or lace net if one prefers- Breakfast sets are indispensable
and as varied as bridge sets. There are still embroidered
linens for formal and informal luncheons to add.
Another set of shelves in one's linen closet must be re
served for the supply for the needs of the bath room. Color
as gay and designs as fanciful as in a flower garden may
decorate the once austere all-in-white room then, nothing
but white could express cleanliness.
Bath mats, face cloths and towels may match if one
prefers. Then again each member of the home may have
his favorite color. Even hand towels come in colors, and
grow finer in each new season.
Bankets and Coverlets
When one is considering the supplies to run the home,
one is apt to think of blankets and coverlets, t. Warmer,
covers must be in readiness, as the cool season arrives. Shall

pale pink or checks of lavender to your collection? Or do
