Color, Fibers Noteworthy In Floor Coverings Styling in floor coverings this season is a fasciniiting drama that unfolds in three parts, with color, pattern and texture playing the imijor roles. At first glance this may not appenr to be honielashion news, but the extent to which these three factors have been emphasized go far beyond anything ever seen in past seasons. Yes. it's more color, more pattern, more texture! Color-wise the lights are getting lighter, the darks are getting darker, and high-shades heretofore seen mainly in decorator's showrooms, have emerged as strong contenders for top home honors! The standard beige has become almost colorless. The traditional greens have been almost entirely replaced by a surprisingly deep bottle green. Amethyst, peach, copper a n d peacock blue are a few of the more ususuul shades being featured. Texture has taken over all the standard weaves and even plush and frieze yarns are woven in interesting textured effects. The hand-loomed look is achieved by ovcrtufting a flat weave with cotton pile. Hugs are bordered dec-p­ ly with either high-low or random- sheared textured effects. Patterns — patterns — more patterns! Hard or soft surfaced you can't escape the new distinctive designs that bring high- fashion into every home! Carpeting and bordered rugs come in medallion designs, unusually colored stripes, argyle checks, tweeds that incorporate gold or silver threads! No matter what your individual preference, it will be almost impossible not to find exactly what you're looking for this season! Family Rooms Invite Warm, Light-Hearted Accessories Once the repository of furriiturc discards, the increasingly popular family-room has stepped out of the Cinderella class, and emerged full-blown, as one of the most stylist rooms in' the house. Without sacrificing the original concept — creating an informal room where the family could relax without too much regard for the furnishings — the accent has now been placed on style! Vinyl floors, plastic drapes and leather-like upholstery have combined in a look that's light, airy, smart, and yet easier than ever to keep clean! These newest man-made fabrics, can also stand up to continuous wear, another plus factor in their desirability for use in family rooms. Evolving almost simultaneously in every section of the country, decoration is strongly influenced REDLANDS DAILY FACTS Tuesday, Mar. 10, 1959—Page 21 ily rooms with buill-ins and lushly roomy chairs. However, it's your family, your room and your leisure. . . so furnish to suit! by regional location. In the south, family rooms lean heavily toward modern furniture. The midwest favors a more formal treatment, utilizing copies of classic furniture styles, crafted of stain-resistant woods. The New England version mixes its favorite Early American with modern pieces.

Many pieces have warming units, oven-proof casseroles are more colorful and even charcoal grills now come in table models. Lingerie Too Follows All New Themes Never before have outer-wear silhouettes and colors so keenly influenced lingerie fashions as they nave this spring. The simple lines, classic character and lack of ornamentation in spring fashions offer an invitation to colorful and decorated underpinnings. Example — a bold printed petticoat and matching panty help underscore a monotone suit! Lingerie — trimmed with richly embroidered laces and beribboned eyelets is feminine froUi for the season's simple-line fashions. This spring underwear is color and print-matched to each other — and meant to be color-matched or mixed with outer fashions. Hig news is the return to the soft billowy skirted dress with fitted waistline — revitalizing the bouffant petticoat and slip — though now more softened. Full length slips often appear with tiered and shirred flounces in line with the bouffant silhouette. Skirts will stay short — just covering the kneecap — and lingerie follows suit. Available in greater choice are hemlines that can be easily proportioned by the wearer. This hemline interest awakens more "borderline" accents: Scallops; deep lavish trimming; cm- broideries and laces.
