COLOR, DESIGN AND TEXTURE COUNT IN WALL PAPER CHOICE The color and design of a wall paper are both decidedly changed by the qual ity of Ua surface finish. Color, because it depends upon the way in which the paper catches the light, is modified directly, for the surface Inlsh altera the light effect. A high-gloss finish will therefore be found to make a color look lighter than a flat dull finish, nut on the other hand, a very rough finish such as a hea\y crepe, also makes the color seem lighter because it presents to the light a number of broad ridges that stand out. causing light to he reflected. The ridges are either thrown into relief or emphasized by small patches of shadow. In cases where a coarse finish lacks these wide ridges, such as a rough plaster finish paper, a darker color ef fect is produced because the roughness is only enough to create a small lace work of shadow over the paper without causing high lights. The effect of texture on color will naturally vary with the quality of light reaching it. If all the light comes from one end of the room, roughness of tex nire will darken the color more than If tight enters from two or more direc tions. This is because light from one direction emphasizes shadows, while light from two directions tends to elimi nate them. Smoothness of texture is rot so effective in a room lighted from one end because much of its surface is not in position to catch the light and therefore cannot reflect it. Texture Warm or ('old. The warmness or coldness of a paper Ir largely due to its texture. Take two nepers of a cold gray color. One in a envy crepe with broad mines, the other ' a fiat texture. The former, with the • mall flickering shadows that it pro i nccs, will seem much warmer because :lie interplay of shadows and lights • ives life and movement to the color, ‘let take a warm tan In a rough plaster finish that produces much shadow and 1 ;r tends to look colder, for all shadow • cool in color. Again this change is ..creased or minimised by the direction of light in a room, light from only one end making all colors look colder be come the shadow areas are greater. This effect of light direction on texture nd color is more noticeable with neu :ral colors than with positive shades be cause the neutrals have a less decided • iiti’lity of their own. The changes wrought in the design ere not so conspicuous as the changes in color, bm It is nevertheless important that texture and design be consistent. a strong, rough texture requires a de sign of large scale with unbroken curves, f the design is small, or broken up into short lines, the further breaking up by rough texture creates an effect of dis organization. On the other hand, If we niace a strong. large design on a finely Salesman Real Estate Our increasing busi ness requires additional salesmen.

It contradicts the delicacy of the sur face and we have conflict between the design and texture, Delicate material may have a fuller, more complicated Pattern than the rough because it per mits fine line and minute detail. Requires Simple Pattern. Paper in which the design Is strongly pressed Into relief, like the leathers, re quire a simpler pattern than docs the flatter damask surface. Bill it should be a moderately large one. for a small design so emphasized would be dispro portionate. leather* cannot, however, carry the very largo pattern because pressing makes the design more em phatic and apparently still larger. Flock printing also make* a design conspic uous by virtue of the texture contrasts. It should therefore be smaller and sim pler tn outline than the same pattern on a flat surface. Any texture device, like pressing in relief or flock printing em phasizing design, requires less decided color to compensate fop the texture strength. Hence polychrome leather is usually of dull tone and the room that requires rather strong color support may have It lighter or duller In relief or flock printing than In ordinary plain paper. Thus color, design and texfure not only have to he considered separately in the choice of a paper, but also in re spect to the resultant effect of their combination, huntington'terrace OPERATIONS PROGRESS Streets Graded, Sidewalks Laid and Water end Q ewer Systems Contracted For.
