Record Player Attachment 16.95 Value cnce of interior decorating is so much hokum, and insists that anybody can do it. . Mrs. Draper is living proof of her theory. Though she has been responsible for changing the whole current concept of-decorating,, she admits- lightly she'nevcr studied the stuff at all, knows nothing of 'pe'riod furniture and "really never went to school.'.' A brief skirmish with a. young ladies' finishing school constitutor most of the formal education of this light-hearted tycoon, who now turns out whole housing projects, luxury hotels, modern apartment buildings and private homes in gay, unorthodox colors and functional furnishings. Mrs. Draper, who -gives off enough energy to run an atom- busting machine, says dressing and decorating are two halves of the same apple. She explains: "Thanks to our fashion, magazines, the average 16-year-old girl nowadays is a wizard at planning her own clothes. "But when this same girl gets married and starts buying furniture, rugs and draperies for her new home, she often goes haywire. She. starts out with no. definite plan in mind, buys a bed here, a chair there and a lamp someplace else, puts them all together and then . wonders why nothing looks right." ' . Practical Advice Mrs. Draper has some practical advice for the woman starting out to decorate a home or an apartment. "First she should go out and buy some.big brown envelopes- one for each room she's going to furnish. In'each envelope goes all the data she has gathered on the kind of- effect she wants--color scheme, fabric swatches and so on. "Then she should buy a six-foot rule, a supply of soft pencils and some big sheets of paper, which she marlis into one-foot square*. On each sheet ot paper she lo- _cates the necessary items of furniture, and with crayons she blobs i in the colors. "Next she lists the things she must buy'. For'the living room she will need one divan, two ,end tables, two lamps, two arm chair's, a coffee table, a rug and pictures for the walls. . - . "She. shouldn't try to economize too much on the m a i n pieces, of furniture. She shouldn't buy anything that later she will want to throw away. It's better to splurge on handsome lamps, for instance, and save on such things as the end tables. Three Color Schemes "Her color scheme can be of three things: (a) sharp contrasts, such as white walls, a red carpet and black accents, for instance; (D) all one color, such as walls, rugs, drapes and f u r n i t u r e all the same tone of light blue; (c) blended tones of various colors.
