Bedroom. C.M. Collins photographer.

Stucco (Evening Star 26 July 1927): ‘BEDROOMS. The four bedrooms are on the first floor, the largest being 15ft 3in by 21ft, and the smallest, which is adjoining, 14ft by 15ft. In the main bedroom is a tiled basket grate of special design, and also a radiator. In case the coal supply gives out, there is a plug for an electric heater. The other bedrooms are heated by radiators. There are two-way electric light switches in each room. They are well equipped with wardrobes, the beautiful mirror panelling of both sides of the doors being a striking feature. There is nothing ornate about these rooms, the chief object kept steadily in view by the architect being comfort and restfulness in the decoration scheme, and no one visiting the place could doubt that it has been achieved. The dressing room in connection with the main bedroom is 8ft by 13ft, and is fitted with a huge dressing companion that will be the envy of those who are compelled to do the best they can with the modest box-like wardrobes that are niggardly provided by the usual housebuilder. The long drawers are of the type that don’t fall out on to the toes when one is feeling a little more energetic than usual. The maid’s room is smaller than the other bedrooms, but has all the comforts and most of the luxuries. The linen press has hot water piping throughout.’
