Opportunity for llnmc-malicr February certainly Is the month In refurnish completely or to add new notes here and there. Especially this February. Never have inldwinter furniture sales been KO completely satisfactory from tho standpoints of beauty and budgets. Von can do any number of things with n bedroom of which you have grown pretty tired. A yellow satin chair that nips over and becomes a chaise lounge gives that living room effect. An awkward comer can be easily and inexpensively transformed Into a dressing niche for guests. Purchase for it a small dressing table, stool and mirror. The table and stool would be attractive and dainty Iri white,, and at the same time would brigr'ien ui> the bedroom. Place them as near to the window as possible. The remaining space (if there Is nny) may be filled with a very small, flat-topped table on the order of a manicure table, with plenty of drawer space for cosmetics, Individual combs, powder puffs, perfumes nnd the like. |V. ' lien Furnishings For a man's den, there are handsome bamboo chairs, divans tables, desks and. bookcases that nre light weight, bill masculine In appearance. Then, too, they will sland the great'amount of abuse that they are bound to get. To complete the room, you can carry out the bamboo idea with bamboo paper moldings, and appropriate pictures framed with bamboo paper borders.

Perk \, p all your rooms with color, and don't be afraid to use n lot of it. For example, if the walls are plain, leave three of them so, and paint the fourth a pastel shade, or paper it with printed wall paper. Then put your favorite and loveliest pieces of furniture in that place, and the wall will act as a frame. Keep dark furniture on a light background, and light furniture on a dark one. Gel away from the suite Idea in rooms. Keep most of the pieces odd ones, and have only °»e group such ns a chair and divan, or two chairs, that match; Brilliant accents may be achieved In the living room with glistening mirrors, and aluminum trimmed glass molding aroimd the fireplace. Yellow satin curtains, Chinese red upholstered chairs and black lacquered tables with glass tops are other fetching details. This room shows the new idea of two printed nulls nnd two plain. Yellow, milled but cheerful, warms the plain ones, and appears again in the solid yellow chair. The other chair is covered in a new while honeycomb satin. \ 0 | c h ow (he silver motif is repealed in the silver-gray satin hangings.
