A bright and gracious room that retains the fresh look of summer throughout- the year, this setting features furniture from one of the new collections, designed by Lawrence Peabody. This slim-lined design is offered in a variety of seating pieces and coordinated tables. The fioral patterned fabric brings a summery outdoor note 'to the room. BEFORE YOU BUY A COOPERATIVE Be sure to check the few choice apartments still available! 521 No..Country Ciub EA 6-4262 COOPERATIVE APARTMENTS Bring Summer Indoors To Have Year-Round Fun HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY NEW YORK--With a little effort and a lot of imagination, you can convert' a sun- porch, playroom, den or spare room into a greenhouse-like retreat from unpleasant weather that will delight family and guests as an ideal place for entertaining or just relaxing. To begin with, select furniture that combines the light look of outdoor designs with soft upholstery geared to indoor comfort. Perfect blend of b9th is in a new collection, whose slim-lined fine steel pieces are graced with delicate floral- spray ornaments. A variety of comfortably foam-cushioned seating pieces, coordinated with attractive serving and accessory tables, provides maximum comfort with minimum upkeep. Choose a brilliant fioral upholstery fabric, plus one of the custom lacquer-finishes to set the bright color scheme for your outdoor-indoor room. Surround your basic furnishings with accessories and decorative accents that have one thing in common--the employment of designs or materials suggestive of outdoors. For example, you might use an inexpensive three-dimensional plastic wall- covering in a brick-pattern to cover one or more'wall of the room. For the more venturesome, a corkwood wall covering is an expert-fooling look-alike for real tree- bark. This would make a conversation- piece covering for one wall or--in a basement or attic room--could surround structural beams and convert them into whimsical indoor 'trees'. Flooring is no problem, with the variety of vinyl tiles now on the market in pat- erns simulating natural materials from brick or flagstone to straw and rush. One offering is a vinyl asbestos tile that duplicates the texture and shadings of natural slate. One of the most effective ways to provide color and texture for this type of room is with a striking area rug in unexpectedly-muted colors. They are as easy to care for as they are beautiful. A more subdued design is a rug of hand- woven natural bamboo in native-patterned black and natural tones. Not to be forgotten is the vital importance of outdoor foliage in any room that does homage to summer. Scattered about the room, or massed in a focal-point 'garden' area, nothing provides as much decorative and atmospheric effect as an assortment of unusual potted plants and trees. If your room has poor lighting, or other conditions which make it unsuitable for live foliage, take advantage of the almost-real variety of artificial designs on the market, scattering them with a'lavish hand to convert your indoor room into a year-round summertime setting.

Weslwood Hills Apartments Where the easy life begins at 40 Tips On Awning Buying When it comes to buying an aluminum patio cover or window awnings, little things mean a lot. To help the homeowner select the awning that suits the family best, the Bridgeport Brass Company, passes along the following shopping tips. 1. Look into the much wider range of colored panels available this year. Instead of the traditional high-gloss colors, you may prefer low-gloss matte finishes that blend with the color of your roof or siding. Or, consider the new metallic baked enamel finishes, such as gold or copper, to create a striking effect. 2. Check if awnings of patio covers have ventilated designs that prevent hot air from the indoors from being trapped underneath. White undersides are a must to admit pleasant, diffused light and there shouldn't be any "nuts and bolts" look. For a different effect, you can have translucent panels interspersed among the, aluminum ones. 3. Decorative awning sup- port posts are" fine but check first to see if they permit easy installation of screened panels in the future. 4. In selecting window awnings and door canopies, consider the style that's best for your location and section of the country. There are roll-up aluminum awnings that allow the winter sun to enter; awnings with horizontal or vertical panels and "see through" designs that preserve the view while keeping the sun off furnishings and carpeting.
