THURS., AUGUST 23,1962, Lake Charles Amerfcan Press The Traditional in Decor Is Qood The A.I.D. Gallery of Interiors at the Chicago International Trade fair *htch ended this month, was a show place for a cross-section of style and price for today's homes. Ranging from exclusive lo volume merchandise, the Gallery proved that the imagination of the qualified interior designer is the deciding factor in a room's beauty. The rooms showed a definite trend at the designer level toward traditional stylings and the use 'of period reproductions in.furnish- ings, With a contemporary flair in the use of color end custom- designed floorings. This is a year for the individualist, as shown by the fact that there 5s no discernible trend to any one color m this collection. Momemakers, as well a? designers, now demand the colors they prefer, rather than a scheme forced on them as being "good" for everyone. Notable in these rooms was the extensive use of neutral black and white, sparked with a choice: of brilliant color. Another easily adapted trend is the use of painted furniture j i to accent a subtle and neutral j background, or to pick up colors! from a glowing pattern. ! ', Equally notable was the use of' I flooring patterns to extend a 1 room visually, even to the extent j i that the flooring pattern or its i equivalent in some other materi-; i al is often introduced onto at least \ one wall. Soft floor coverings, carpets and rugs, tend toward brilliance hi cetor, often setting the eel of theme. FAST LEARNtR* IN AUSTRIA VIENNA fWNS) - University student Karl Blandenheim won first prize in a department store contest for his answer to the Question: "When you visit a lady's apartment, what is the first thing you look for?" His reply: "Her husband." PENNEVS COUNTRY GALLERY — This long gallery was designed by Richard Himmel. A. I. D., with an elegant country home in mind. His deft use of black backgrounds with brilliant floral tones shows how a -----!w soace can be enlarged visually through color contrast, giving depth and drawing the eyes outward. Setting the iheme is Ihe fabric with its provincial flower-garden motif, used boldly on walls and cantonniere. The black of the background is picked up again for the vinyl floor. Furniture is is painted a brilliant yellow derived from the fabric.
