Decorators Now Stress Beauty And Versatility in Bedrooms In many homes, bedrooms take up half or more of the total living space. Yet, until just recently, bedrooms have received the smallest share of the homemaker's decorating attention, as well as the furniture dealer's merchandising efforts, according to the American Furniture Mart. But, with the advent of super- sized bedding, increased popularity of dual-purpose furniture (sleeper-sofas) and the accent on co-ordinated bed linens, blankets and draperies, this has all changed. In the past decade there has been a revolution in the bedroom! More Daytimt Use Today's homemakers are finding more daytime use of bedrooms with the addition of furnishings to make the room into a study, sitting room or just a quiet spot to relax in solitude.

Cut length- vise along all four corners of he carton, and peel the carton away. Slice and serve. Simple, isn't it? Just two hints o make sure your efforts are a real success. First of all, use only a well-known brand of pop corn that's hulless, and guaran- .eed to pop. You certainly don't want unpopped kernels (old maids) or scratchy hulls in this mixture. Secondly, don't try to mix the pop corn and nuts together before you add the sauce. The nuts are heavier than the pop corn and have a tendency to drift to the bottom of the bowl. To keep them evenly distributed throughout the mixture, add the nuts (about a half cup- full at a time) as you pour the chocolate sauce, mix, add sauce, add nuts, mix, etc., un-' til all the nuts are used. Sliced portions are marbleized hi white and brown. Pretty to see- yummy to eat. homes now features a dining area as well as a private bath. But no matter how old or new your home, or how large or small the rooms, there are some basics to remember when decorating or redecorating the bedroom. The bed (or beds), of course, is the most important element of the room. The bed is made of four components -- mattress (foam latex, open coil innerspring or pocketed coil innerspring), spring, headboard and frames. Whether you chose twin, double, queen or king sized beds, your choice should be determined by quality of construction and comfort as well as aesthetic appeal. Placement of Beds Since it is the largest unit in the room, placement of the bed. is all-important and will determine the rest of your furniture arrangement. A good arrangement for twin beds is at right angles or, in a long, narrow room, foot to foot with a table dividing them. Remember, when placing the bed, to keep sleeping comfort in mind. Make sure your bed is located in a spot away from daytime glare or nighttime street lighting. Ideally, there should be room for walking around three sides for ease in making the bed. An ideal arrangement is to confine one end of the bedroom for sleeping, the other for dressing and lounging space. Importance of Color We're all aware of how important color is in influencing human moods. We've long been taught that restful colors -soft tints and cool hues -- are the best choices for bedrooms. However, today the eclectic look is in and decorators are advocating bedrooms done in color schemes the inhabitants like, whether they run to brilliant or soft shades. And don't overlook patterns and/or prints valances can be covered with as in other rooms of the home, a vivid stripe or a colorful floral can add life and warmth to the bedroom. Decorating Walls Since walls are the largest masses lo be decorated, they should carry the dominant color of the room. If the bedroom is small, a light pastel shade will add the illusion of space. In most bedrooms, the ceiling should carry the lightest color lone. Don't, however, overlook the many decorating possibilities when covering the walls. A landscape paper or large mural on the wall facing the bed would be a cheerful note to wake up to. A wood panelled wall, behind the bed, combined with papered or painted walls marbled or clear -- can add a ush look, as well as the look )l spaciousness. Draperies can be used to frame the bed or run the length of a wall, ceil- ng to floor, to create a formal tone. The ideas are limitless. Floor Covering! Floor coverings are another mportent consideration in the bedroom. They absorb sound, act as insulators and are the foundation for the entire decorative -scheme. You may choose area rugs, wall-to-wall carpeting, linoleum or plastic sheet flooring or floor tiles in a variety of materials, depend- ng on your taste and your decorating scheme. And, since he traffic is usually lighter .ban in public areas of the louse, you may indulge in more frivolous colors in the bedroom than in other rooms. Window Treatment Decorating bedroom windows :akes time and thought. Selection of draperies, curtains and shades are important decorat- ng accents throughout the lome. In the bedroom they must also be chosen to control ight and insure privacy. Bedroom window treatment also offers an easy way to acquire a "decorator" touch lo your room. Wooden window valances can be covered with wallpaper to match wall coverings to give the room a coordinated look. Another idea is to "quilt" the valance with foam and then cover with material to match bedspread and/ or draperies or padded headboard. Curtains or draperies can be selected to blend with walls or match bedding. Wood or plastic shutters can add style interest as well as act as a ;ood means of controling light. can add a note of elegance.
