The Well-Mannered House

What do Asian-style parasols have to do with a well-mannered home? While I was without Internet access and unable to get much real work done, I tackled the domestic section in Vogue's Book of Etiquette and Good Manners, 1969. Most of the advice is incredibly timeless; some a bit dated. I'll be back shortly to explain.

"Show me his house. Here one can never be fooled". Such true words.

Mitzi and Romano had the prettiest window display of the summer!
