Designer's Touch Tirst Impressions Count' By Couie Shearer There are so many things to talk about in home furnishings these days. We've said it once and we repeat -never have people been so interested in the way their homes look. How often, when a crowd gathers, does the conversation turn to interior design! And speaking of furnishings, let's talk a little bit about the part of the home you see as soon as the front door opens -- the foyer. * * * Storage Modules Separate Entry From Living Room Tile-Patterned Floor Contrasts with Solid Color Carpeting ·' f f-\ l,t Suede Combined With Menswear Wool Plaid Carriage Trade and Paragon Wish You A. . . It's so nice to say "I made it for you.'' And you can. with needlcraft kits from Paragon complete with necessary materials and easy instructions. Trim your house and tree with table runners, pictures, stockings, tree skirts, and ornaments. Hostess aprons too, for you the hostess. Choose your style- needlepoint, embroider.', cross stitch, knit or crochet. 5"x10,"ttHchcryiaiiikr r'x18"PetfkaHi«tftiy THE OLD saying "first impressions count" goes for houses as well as people. So, when you redecorate your home, put your best foot forward in the place people see first -- the foyer. Many older homes have entrance halls or foyers separated from the living room. Owners of newer homes without a separate foyer sometimes use tall furnishings like shelves and bookcases to create a small foyer off the living room. In either case, the foyer should be carefully decorated, as is the one in the photograph. The stacked storage modules effectively separate the entry from the living room proper. The European ceramic tile-patterned floor is a sharp contrast to the thick solid-color carpeting in the living room. Conventional 18 inch and 30 inch wall cabinets in one section, for instance, are stacked on the standard- width counter to provide additional storage space. Portable appliances or other frequently used items can be easily stored out of sight at countertop level. MODULAR BASE and wall units are available in more than 70 sizes to provide opportunities for varied arrangements, including stacking, to fit any area. A couple of weeks ago we discussed combining textures and materials for interesting decor. We referred to a new seating arrangement in suede and menswear wool paid used with wicker tables. The grouping is pictured here.
