Depicts porch at Wilk home in Scarsdale, New York. Features rattan furniture, with lattice paneling at the walls.


The terrace on the estate of Mrs. J. Wilk, Scarsdale, N.Y., was formerly a gloomy space in the rear of the house, darkened by a brick wall, and the projection of a room overhead. It is now a cheerful, inviting place to linger on summer days. The wall is used as background for delightful planting, and the space beneath the projected room is enclosed by screens to form an outside room for lounging and dining. The kiosk in the corner, conceal-in the outside entrance to the cellar below is made attractive with lattice and tole fountain. The lower level of the kiosk is covered with green permatex and rope molding to form a table for books, lamp, and smoking appointments. The ceiling is painted the color of the sky, and the furniture (Colwell) is white, with blue green cushions on the sofa, and golden yellow on the chairs. Green sisal covers the red brick floor. Pillows pick up shades of yellow, sea-green, and white. Green bamboo shades give privacy when it is used as a sleeping porch. ;PHOTOGRAPH BY/Lloyd D. LeMan/15 W. 44th ST., N.Y.C., MUrray Hill 2-5628
