The author was seized by the lure of the small house, finding the step saving and work saving left more time to indulge in nature or in educational study. With the proper use of light and color in finish, upholstery and hangings, the small home "awakens joy and gladness." Chapters discuss roof, windows, porch, staircase, books, furniture, fireplace, bathroom, kitchen, lighting, and more.
