That's the opinion of a British home magazine editor, who says you can't test a bed properly if you're wearing day clothes and carrying a handbag or an umbrella. This suggestion should be extended to the selection of wallpaper, draperies and other fu^nishings for the bedroom. The colors and patterns that attract you when you're in a vertical position and in the midst of a busy day aren't necessarily the ones that would help put you to sleep at night. Also they may not add up to the decorating scheme you'd like to face first thing in the morning. The National Assn. of Bedding Manufacturers says you'll drop off to sleep faster if you decorate your bedroom in soft, whispery tones of blue, green or pink, and use bright colors only for accents.* It suggests you steer clear of loud, disturbing wallpaper patterns. Horizontal lines, the association says, are sleepier than vertical or random patterns. So if you've had trouble trying to fall asleep, it may be your jazzy wallpaper that's at fault. On the other hand, a study by a bedding company shows that people's tastes differ widely on what makes a bedroom cozy. Some people insisted that bright colors and boldly patterned wallpaper made them feel more cheerful and confident than the wishy-washy pastels that others found soothing. In addition, the study revealed that some people are happy only in a cluttered bedroom with heavy draperies, large pieces of furniture' and thick carpeting. Others require a clear, bare look in the bedroom to make them feel serene. It also indicated tfeat women think bedrooms should be decorated in a feminine manner whether or not their husbands agree. Plenty of ruffles on bedroom curtains, bed skirts and canopies are the preference of a high percentage of women surveyed. Noting that husbands have a particular aversion to bed canopies because they're "sissy stuff," one decorator advises wives to compromise by giving the canopy a tailored look. The current vogue of using striped ticking fabric on bedroom walls and for draperies and bedspreads gives husbands a further break for ticking contributes to a tailored bedroom decor. Even when the ticking comes in red or pink stripes, it's less flouncy looking than batiste or organdy. You doii^t have to be a Millionaire to sliop at PORTERS . •.
