It is stylish this year to have pale walls, preferably white or beige and light-colored fabrics on your furniture. ' 'This is fine for a house of grownups but not for one with youngsters and pets romping around," says Richard HimmeL " Himmel is a 36-year-old designer of luxury furniture which -was shown covered in oyster-white silks at the recent International Home Furnishings market. . But In his own apartment in Chicago, the walls, the upholstered furniture and the rugs are varying shades of charcoal grey brightened with touches, of yellow. "I didn't want to slipcover our two children to keep the furniture and walls clean," explained Himmel with a grin. - A member of the American Institute of Decorators, Himmel said women with small children should not be afraid of using dark colors, even in small rooms, rather than the "so-called fashionable light ones." But the trick in using, dark colors is to keep to one per room. "Never put a dark brown in the same room with a dark grey," advised Himmel, "use varying shades of a single color instead."

Mass., said the SO inch sofa is still the length that fits best in modern' homes because of the large amount of space devoted in windows. . Peabody said, however, that the advantage of a long sofa-more seating space can be worked into a small room with upholstered sections. He said: "If you put a 100 lnch sofa into a room that is 12 feet by 15 feet, youll have no place for tables. But you can put a 50-inch sectional on one wall, another 50 inch sectional on the adjoining wall, a corner table in between and be able to seat just as many people."
