They do special "jobs" within a room or from room 1 to room. •As shown above, the traditional-in-feeling papers • can soften the severe lines of modern furniture and give warmth*and drama to a dark foyer area. fe- ' .},'... To give light to small dark rooms, there are increasing 'nurnbers of ' open-spaced patterns on light backgrounds. And, "some of, the new "trellis" designs create a feeling of infinite space.:Semi-scenic patterns such as lightly sketched bridges, courtly buildings, trees and foliage carry the eye far into the "beyond." There are patterns with rich color accents on softly textured light backgrounds for "blended" room schemes. Also these papers can be used to set apart a special area in the living room' for televiewing or for dining. The tricks with wallpaper are endless. There is so much that wallpaper can do for the homemaker, and so inexpensively, that one well- known home furnishings stylist remarked, "Nothinjr in the world decorates like wallpaper."
