EASY MATTER TO BRIGHTEN UP
A NORTH ROOM.
iHome Art Specialist Suggests Use of
Yellow as Probably the Best
Have the Curtains of Some
Have you a bugbear of a north room
that always eludes your attempts to
?make lt livable? Now that winter is
?here, it might be just the place for the
children to use as a playroom, or the
older ones for quiet study and read
"The problem facing one who fur
nishes a north room is that of making
.it light, bright and warm," comment
^e? Miss Araminta Holman, instructor
In home art In the Kansas State Agri
cultural college. "Since this room
lacks sunshine, yellow Is the best color
to use. Yellow will cheer and bright
en lt, and yellow which has a little
red to wann it will be better than a
*coId* color. Orange ls the warmest
color. Browns are tones of orange
and better to use than gray, black or
blue. One should use browns that
have more yellow than red.
"If the room ls a 'den,' the furni
ture may be walnut or oak, but If lt ls
a bedroom, bird's-eye maple or cherry
may be used. The curtains should be
light, In tones of yellow or orange.
The material should be thin and trans
parent to admit all the light possible.
"Backgrounds should be yellow or
orange-wann colors. The woods used
should be la harmony with the other
furnishings of the room. Dark tones
express formality, dignity, repose and
seriousness. Light tones express gay
ety, youth and informality."
