Coordinated . fabrics can unify a room in the same way that coordinated clothe* can bring out a single facet of a woman's personality, in fact, cottons for home fashions have much in common with cottons used for dress fashions. In both, the "polished" look is featured this season. Cotton satins and chintzes have lustrous shining surfaces which reflect the light, add their own gleaming color and pattern interest to every room in the house. Variety of Patterns Patterns and colors featured include luxurious formal types as well as gay bright patterns that add cheer to a kitchen or bathroom window. The luxury look of the all-over pattern is shown in a damask-type print on cotton satin. Beautiful colorings of red on pink, blues on pale blue ground, mauve tones on a pastel mauve (round are featured. Huge chandeliers, done In » modern splatter technique, m>ke a formal pattern on cotton satin In subtle color schemes, such u charcoal, mauve and blue. Coordinated to the many printed cotton satins are plain colors which make it ea»y for home decorators to pair-up drapes, bedspreads, dressing table skirts, slipcovers and pillows. Fabric Coordination In the coordinated theme is a flower-printed chintz which can be combined with a correlated check and with plain-colored chintzes. Still another coordination is achieved by a sheer lawn which comes in the same flower print as the chintz, and which can be used for curtains. A well designed wall covering of coated cotton fabric can carry out the coordinated room theme when carefully teamed with decorative fabrics. The wall pattern itself can change the apparent shape - and mood of a room, making it seem larger or better proportioned. In combination with th« drtptrlw It can alter the room's entire pemon- lity. A large-scaled scenic will covering contributes strong chuuter to the room, even substituting Itt design for pictures.
