Keep cool and beat the heat–how Edwardians kept their home cool in the summer!

在夏季酷暑中保持家凉-爱德华七世时代的装饰理念
爱德华七世时代的夏季房间装饰,1910年

‘这个女人必须整个夏天呆在城市,或者在丈夫休假时可以离开城镇仅两周时间,就应该发挥智慧,使自己的房屋或公寓看起来尽可能凉爽–因为外观凉爽,使我们想像温度计确实比实际温度低。’ (1909年7月,芝加哥论坛报)

去除重型窗帘& Large Pictures

‘Of course, she has put away her heavy draperies and curtains and in all probability has covered the upholstered furniture with slip covers of neutral tinted linen or light flowered cretonne. But that has not made things so much cooler looking.

The first to do is to take down all the large pictures, especially those with heavy gilt frames or particularly vivid colorings. Put them in the closet or the store room. Get them out of sight and arrange in their places a few delicate water colors or brown photographs.

Next, clear the piano top and the mantel shelf and the bookcase of bric-à-brac, except a few pieces in cool colorings. Get everything gilt and glittering out of sight. Give the appearance of simplicity and spaciousness–it wont seem bare as soon as you get used to it.’ (1909年7月,芝加哥论坛报)

‘还要注意的是,房间里到处都有被布置的外观。人们在卧室的小沙发上看到了这一点,在镜子下面的座位上也看到了这一点,尽管镜子用chintz进行了缓冲,但没有被遮挡,这样既保持了之前提到的通风感和新鲜感,又不牺牲舒适性。’ (房屋及其装饰,1903年)

 

白色家具,墙纸& White Cotton Fabric

‘如今,即使是富裕的人们,其目的也是在他们的夏季别墅的客厅中使用便宜的洗涤材料。我不知道能像纽约人在缅因州海岸租的房子那样取得如此令人满意的结果。当她拿走它时,它可能是岛上发现的最丑陋的小屋。她就是用裸露的,长长的,狭窄的客厅来做的,客厅的一端有一个壁炉,而在与一扇笨拙的大折叠门相对的侧面上有一个月台窗。

She painted the wood-work white, and covered the walls with a paper showing pink roses on a white ground; made her curtains of white dotted muslin ruffled with lace,将它们绑在窗户上,将折叠门上绑上柔软的粉红色粗棉布大蝴蝶结,使颜色与纸上的玫瑰相匹配。她将丑陋的家具涂成白色,用白色棉质材料覆盖椅子和沙发,并显示出细小的条纹。房间里唯一允许使用的丝绸是 lamp-shades and on the cushions everywhere distributed–she is a woman who understands the art of cushions, the value of those civilizing touches which soft down sofa pillows lend the barest room.’ (房屋及其装饰,1903年)

Polished Wood Tables

‘Take the table covers off and polish the table top. Leave a square of white linen on it if you like to protect it from scratching if you must set things on it, but leave the most of it bare, for polished wood is always attractive.

This holds good, too, for the dining room table. Here, after you have packed away most of the silver and china and taken out any superfluous furnishings, you can have your meals in peace, using the table bare with nothing but a couple of table runners or a few doilies. If the wood gets a few blemishes, don’t mind. You are saving wear on your table linen, and laundry bills as well, and if you use paper napkins you are merely living the simple life and not disgracing as a housekeeper.’ (1909年7月,芝加哥论坛报)

 

用蕨类装饰& Leaves

A ‘由无法负担纸张的年轻艺术家设计的乡间粉刷房间–在温暖的夏日里,我们沿海最舒适,最令人愉悦,当然也是最令人耳目一新的房间都可以找到。这些女孩做了什么呢?只不过要到处介绍花草–在充足的松木桌子上的玻璃碗里放蕨类和花朵;一束束月桂树在角落的基座上的花盆里;枫树在壁炉架上的分支,窗户上的绿色遮阳篷,窗台上的花箱。

No one need suffer, therefore, who cannot emulate a neighbor’s costly appointments. The privilege of extravagance belongs to the few, but the right to refinement is a legacy to us all.’ (房屋及其装饰,1903年)

用蕨类植物装饰-爱德华七世时代夏季装饰理念

‘您的餐厅壁炉架上应该有一个蕨菜,窗台上应该有一盒正在生长的植物。不管你能不能’买不起花店的东西,您可以负担得起乘坐手推车到乡下去,挖一些野外生长的花和蕨类植物。当他们死了,出去得到更多。他们将在夏天给您的公寓或房屋带来凉意,比什么都重要。 […]

房屋中的每个房间都应该有一个大花瓶或一个或两个罐子,当您到乡下朝圣时,带上枝繁叶茂的树枝甚至是松树枝,将这些花瓶装满,并给人以绿色清新的自然气息。到城市居民。一旦您开始学习,叶子比花朵还要美丽,而且它们不会那么快地枯萎一半。’ (1909年7月,芝加哥论坛报)

 

保持卧室黑暗

‘在卧室里拿出一半的照片和每件可以摆放的家具。确保百叶窗内有黑暗,以免阳光直射打扰您并使其从6到7点醒来’午睡。内幕应轻盈透明。平直的干酪布是令人满意的。 […]

Keep all the windows open, but shaded, all day long when the days are hot. Leave doors open all through the house to get the benefit of any draft of air.

 

烹饪& The Fireless Cooker

Plan to have the cooking done for the most part in the cool hours of the morning, then do not light the stove again all day.

Edwardian Fireless Cooker
爱德华七世时代的电磁炉(每个女人’百科全书,1910-2)

If you have no fireless cooker,用两个紧密覆盖的水壶使一个温和,其中一个比另一个小得多。将食物放入较小的水壶中​​,使其沸腾,然后煮10至20分钟。大水壶里有水在沸腾,然后把热的小水壶放进去,盖紧盖子。这两个水壶现在可以沸腾几分钟,然后从火炉中取出,将盖子放在较大的水壶上,然后放在厚重的折叠报纸垫上,然后将更多报纸或旧毯子扔在上面。在三到四个小时结束时,将食物煮熟并准备进行最终加热。

To keep the house cool in summer, summing it all up, may be achieved by banishing the superfluous, giving the air a chance to circulate and minimizing the work.’ (1909年7月,芝加哥论坛报)
