So says Mary Davis Oilles. decorating expert and author of the smart book. "Popular Home Decoration." ".Stop i a king things passively," continues Mrs. Gillies. "Learn how io define your likes and dislikes'. Try making lists of things you like and dislike, even if you feel silly doing- it." Mrs. Gillies confides t'hat she herself happens to like very much yellow, flowers, deep woods, autumn • foliage, .spring flowering bulbs, oceans, ponds, streams, wood fires and fabrics. And that she actively dislikes drab .surroundings, huge cultivated flowers, so-called domestic Oriental jrugs and CONVICTIONS GIVE CONFIDENCE Sound Risk-Ruling Replaces Old-Time Appraisal Methods Tin- days of horseback appraisals lire over.

N. C, thru there never is a closed season on them. "Even though at first you are unable io interpret and inuice helpful deductions from your lists." Mrs. Gillies advises, ".simply determining your likes will train you in making Quick decisions, if you develop the nblity to feel reactions clearly, you won't yo into a tailspin trying- to decide, for instance, what kind of material to use for draperies. You will know .what you like and that will be the thins to use. '•Incidentally, you will find that having a nice solid core cl" convictions (likes and dislikes) tucked away in your conscious mind will give yovi a new confidence in everything- you do. It also will make you a great deal more interesting- person." Mary Davis Gillies points out in« her decorating book Unit only an extremely small amount, of money is needed to give a jaded room a new face. A can of bright paint, a few yards cf inexpensive although really gay cotton slipcover and drapery fabric, plus new and imaginative re-arrangement of the old furniture, often are all that L' required to turn a dull room into a stunning one. Mrs. Gillies warns against a great striving for original, unconventional effects .by anyone who is decorating for the first time, or even the second. DON'T FORCE YOURSELF TO CREATE "If you strain to develop an idea ( that is different, one of two things j may happen," she explains, "(l) You may never be- able to make up your mind what to do and a r a result you will do nothing; or (2) Instead of developing something, you will have something tricky and hard to live with. "Don't force yourself to create easy. Look through magazines and books. Look at store windows. Study model rooms. If you see something you like, copy it. After a while, when you have developed some actual experience, you will find that you can create your own ideas. "For some reason, the mere doing leads to Invention and originality." ferent effects may be obtnincd.
