Hansen's Service On Highway 44 at Fenton And Your Business Is Appreciated Choosing The Right Colors For Your t Home Ray and Wilfred Stoeber Choosing good color schemes is a matter of taste and harmony. Since you are the one to live with the colors, pick the ones that please you. There are, of course, simple steps that everyone should follow. It's a good idea to look at any of the home furnishing idea books available at any newstand. Better Homes and Gardens puts out a decorating book that's full of color ideas. The color you select should harmonize with the colors of your furniture and* rugs. And don't forget to consider the shape, size and location of the room itself. Colors should suit the exposure of the room. Paint north rooms warm colors like yellow, row, beige, peach, coral and warm browns. South rooms n««d cool colors like Nile green, light blue, light gray, lime chartreuse. East rooms need soothing colors like ivory, cream, buff, light gray and similar friendly Jones, West rooms need cool, soft colors — avoid rose, peach and tan. The character of a color should also be considered, Red, for example, is exciting, It shouldn't be used for bedrooms. Yellow is sunny and cheerful •**• it has actually been used to overcome certain neurotic conditions in hos* pita} rooms.
