You can get variety by combining three plain walls with one patterned wall in a small room, but in general you should avoid vivid contrasts and large patterns in small rooms, Miss Keyes cautions. Wednesday, January 4, 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD T- Large patterns tend to draw a room in. For a large room you might choose a large, but unobstru- sive, pattern if you wish the walls to look important and be the main decorative element. ed to children's rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Imported silk might be used in a bedroom or living room, and wood or imitation wood paneling would probably be used only in a recreation room. Select your wall paper carefully so your house will look coordinated, Miss Keyes suggests. Plain waQs or coordinated papers should b# used in adjoining rooms to avoid' pattern conflicts. Buy! Sell!

WALLPAPER CAN ADD VARIETY TO YOUR HOME, SUI PROFESSOR SAYS Iowa City—New types of wallpaper and new ideas for using wallpaper are making it increasingly popular in home decoration, says Margaret Keyes, assistant professor of home economics at The State University of Iowa. Wallpaner is now available in many different styles and textures to fit almost any need and any room in your home. It can be! used to create a center of interest f in a room, or to conceal irregulari- j ties. It can add variety to your whole decorative scheme, Miss Keves says. The latest wallpaper textures are rarely all paper, but may be woven grass, imported silk, burlap, or even wood strips backed with paper. Many papers now are made of fabrics coated with a water- nroofing material, usually plastic. You can even get a children's paper which includes figures a child can cut out himself. WallDapers are also available in « variety of patterns . . . from stripes and more conventional designs to bold, brightly colored patterns. Matching fabrics, and in some cases matching tile, are now available with many papers. To receive full benefit from these designs and papers, you need to 'use them to the best advantage, Miss Keyes reminds. When se- j lecting wall papers, you should keep several points in mind. Small, allover patterns in soft colors against light backgrounds made a small room look larger. Plain papers and two-toned or fine pin-stripe papers can give the Bold, brightly colored patterns may be suitable for small rooms which you don't "live" in, such as a closet, hall or bathroom. These can also be effectively used in small amounts over or behind large pieces of furniture, to fill one side of a free-standing room divider, or perhaps over a cabinet or between bookshelves. These patterns are tiring to the eyes, however, and they should not be used on walls which you must see at long periods each, day, Miss Keyes advises. If you want to use a bold patterns in a bed room, for example, use it behind the bed. The patterns may be quite disturbing if you must face it when you are trying to sleep or when sick and trying to rest. You can purchase scenes complete one or two panels of p(aper to create a center of interest on a wall, in a hallway, or above a stairway. Used effectively, these scenes can give a feeling of space, but if you use too much, the wallpaper seems to be "coming in on you," Miss Keyes says. If you wish to make the ceiling of a room appear lower, you might paper three walls with horizontal stripes, leaving one wall plain. You can also run the ceiling paper part way down the wall, or can use a three-foot dado, topped with a narrow strip of molding, around the bottom of your walls with plain papered or painted walls above Allover patterns across the walls and ceiling can blend dormers into a room, and horizontal stripes can make a wall seem longer and the ceiling lower. Vertical stripes make a ceiling look higher or a wall look shorter. A patterned wall- per can "also disguise uneven plaster, jutting beams and low, sloping ceilings. Choose textures which are appropriate to a room's function, Miss Keyes advises. For example, washable plastics are particularly suit- WMmMmmMmWUmmmUMmimmMWmm • • •- We enjoy serving auto needs i The pleasure's not all yours when you enjoy our prompt, heads-up service.
