"Artistic Homes. How to Plan and How to Build Them." (1894)

From the McClung Historical Collection George F. Barber Collection, this booklet, "Artistic Homes," provides advice on how to design a home, including guidance for specific rooms, floor plans, and drawings of interiors and exteriors.  And remember "a little art or beveled glass in a house of any cost adds very much to the appearance and value of the property and is not expensive" (from page 14, Practical Points).
