Quality Counts For Homemakers CHICAGO (UP!) - Interior designer Ernest T. Tietgens says young couples furnishing an apartment should look for "double duty" furniture but should not skimp on quality. "If the couple eventually plans to buy a home, furniture should bo bought with that purpose in mind," he said. "A sofa bed is a practical piece of furniture for modem apartments and can be used in the den when a home is purchased." If an apartment has a tile or fine wood floor, an area rug is a practical investment, he said. It provides the needed warmth and color for an apartment and can fit well to the decorating scheme of a home. "If a couple wanted to buy carpeting for an apartment I would, recommend a neutral shade of 'off-white beige'," Tietgens said. "Since most apartments are small, color should be used as an accent because too much color is overwhelming.' Color accents can be found in throw pillows, large ashtrays, curtain tiebacks or lamps, Tietgens said. "Scale and proportions arc very important tools to keep in mind when decorating the living room since an apartment living room usually is not as large as that of a home," he said. "Bright colors make rooms look larger," he said. "Horizontal stripes give a wide appearance; vertical lines add to the illusion of height." Tietgens said that te.\ture and pattern as well as color should be subdued in apartments to stay within the proper scale. Made-to-measure for your windows at a cost near ready-nrtades . . .
