Phone 1100 Algona E LECTRONIC DRY CLEANING (With Formula 886) INSURES CLEANLINESS AND SAFETY beyond the scope of human skill t Exclusively At ELK CLEANERS ALGONA This season's wallpapers are so highly imaginative, it would seem they could solve almost any decorating problem. With the homemaker's need for more space, light and a feeling of wide-openess, wallpaper patterns now do much more than make a room lovelier. They do special "jobs" within a room or from room 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. • ~ To give light to small dark rooms, there are increasing numbers 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 arc 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. "Nothing in the world decorates like wallpaper."
