(Courier News Photo) Nursery Losing Pink and Blue In Favor of Grown-Up Colors Arbiters of fashion in home decoration appear to have decreed the gradual extinction of traditional pink and blue as "musts" for the nursery. Sophisticated hues keynoted a 1955 presentation of modern chil r dren's room settings as staged by the Fashion Group, an organization of .New York fashion industry dignitaries. Noticeably absent from the' preview of coming styles in home decoration were the old standbys, pink for a girl's room and blue for a boy's. The youngsters are all for the change, so far as could be determined by fashion writers in a public opinion survey of small fry attending the exhibit. Young visitors applauded the adult approach toward color, and they agreed it was high time their own rooms looked more like those of their elders. Kids Love New Colors Among the new ideas presented by the Fashion Group, which directly and indirectly exerts a powerful influence .'On American fashion trends, was a sample room in turquoise, white and black. The youngsters loved it. Styles in draperies and bedspreads being offered by manufacturers for children's rooms echo the sophisticated treatment.. Even earthy, brown tones in straight, tailored lines are suggested for more orderly youngsters. Conversely, adult decorative schemes are beginning to borrow from the children. Clean bonbon colors—including good old pink and blue — are showing up as the last word in gay bedroom edcor for elders in a merry mood. Quaint, Quilted Look Some new bedroom settings provide a quaint and quilted look, with floral printed cotton bedspreads in harmony with bright blue dust ruffles, often as not combined with more blue in the curtains. "No question awwt it," exclaims a veteran fashion editor, "blue is making its debut as the decorating color of the future." Among-the new blues are midnight blue—often combined with pink in both drapery fabric and wallpaper —pale blue, dark blue, green blue and gray blue. But as for children's blue, the indications are that it's had it—at least for children. For a refreshing flavor to iced tea, add a sprig of fresh mint to the boil ink' water used in making the tea.
