They lived in Paris for 13 years. She gave up her foreign ser- vice career after marriafe, but her talents have f «Mt m outlet M the arts. She earned a doctorate in French literature from the Sorbonae, and in addition to her painting has published a volume of poetry. * · * HIGHLIGHT of the couple's artistic career, however; was the acceptance of two of their paintings in an exhibit at the Museum of the Luxembourg Palace last year. Their's were the only works by Americans accepted for the exhibit which had as its theme "Art and Christianity." Their paintings received favorable comment from famed critic Henri Heraut writing in "L'Amateur d'Art," a leading French art magazine. The Wrights returned to this country last month. They are visiting Mrs. Wright's mother, Mrs. Harriet White at her Edgewood home. "We have no definite plans where we will locate. It's all up in the air. But that's no- thing new for us -- we didn't expect to spend 13 years in Paris, either." Living abroad forms its own patterns of life, though, and most of our friends are there. So we really don't know where we'll settle," she added. Mrs. Wright, a graduate of Bryn Mawr. joined the foreign service of the United States State Department and served in Europe and Asia. She was the first woman consul to be sent to Yokohama. Japan. Designer'x Touch Create Wonderful World of Walls MR. AND MRS.

"I One visit to your local paint ^ and wallpaper store tells you '4 that there is just no limit to :* the beautiful and interesting colors and designs available. But it still takes your most important instrument,; good old imagination, to do something really different. * * * WOULD YOU ever consider the upper wall in a geometric print and the lower wall, separated only by two inch molding, in a coordinated stripe? Or how about extending your carpet a couple feet up the wall and then start the wallhanging? If you're looking for elegance and something original, why not turn to mirror and paneling. You may choose the conventional mirror, the smoked mirror or.the looking glass flecked with gold. And there's no end to the types of paneling available. Just to see how daring you really are, take a look at the photograph and then order long narrow mirrors and a supply of barnside paneling. * * * ALTERNATE THE mirrors and paneling on the walls and ceiling of the room. The mirrors create a feeling of greater spaciousness and can be most effective with candlelight, if you choose to do a dining room. There you have a room that's different and one that is easy to maintain, since all you have to do is wipe the mirror and the prefinished paneling with a damp cloth. For a bedroom, you might try alternating paneling painted white or one of the decor colors with printed wallpaper. And in a den, alternating paneling with contrasting paneling can be most effective.
