Choosing Wall Paper. ,
. On of ths problems that sorely per
plexes every woman, when the time
omM to have her houee ce pa pared, la
niai relating to mi propriety qt certain
papers (or certain rooms. There are
many -etandpolatt ' from . which this
question should be viewed, - It Is not
mere matter of taste or fancy, but Is
subject which should be considered from
the utilitarian aa well as from the hla
rlo and the sentimental point of view,
infra one mvarwDie rule, nowever,
which should never be overlooked an
that Is that 'the-wall paper should be
tnown 10 conform to tne otner decorat
ive details of th Interior.
"Matt' Conform' to Woodwork.
n considering .the principles of ln-
or decoration there an certain rules
regarding Woodwork which cannot be
violated with Impunity To accompany
dlcate woodwork and furniture, such
as birch or maple. It Js obvious that
the paper should be of a delicate char
acter. , arid with dark woodwork deep
toned paper Is essential. - Very charm-
ins errectH. however, are often obtained
by contrasting colors, such as a red or
preen paper with white enamel finish
o trie woodwork
"Clothy" effects In the paper ara best.
-wnen me wooawora is mgpiy
.Mahogany with Its high-glased, wax
iah, is best set off with paper of a soft.
antique tapestry effect. ' When tho
woodwork la of a severe or substantial
character, strong durable papers should
l used. . The beautiful silk luster- pa.
pers will be found to harmonise agree
ably with Woodwork finished In the
dull Circassian walnut of the. French
periods. Ot coursn these rules are
4aslto- and -opentoeseepttons. - There
are occasions wnen a iigni .itpsnese pa
per with dark woodwork Is very effec
tive and artistic.
Bhonld Consider Boom assign. .
The character of fhanom should sf
ways be given due consideration, for it
Is one -of the most important influences
jn tne proper selection of wall cover
ings. In children's bedrooms the color
" achemes and wall hanglngg-nhould'ln-variably
reflect youth and gaiety. Some
of the picture frleses which can now
be readily obtained make excellent deo-
- inratians for-rooms of this description.
. J-or a study, where all Is quiet snd re
pose, "the environment should be con
oistently sober, quiet and dignified, both
Jn color and design. ,. . j ,. t .
The slKq.of the room should also be
taken into sceount It is out of the
- question, of course, to put a paper with
large pauern upon me waits or
nor Is a wide frlese appro-
room or small dimensions.
It is plainly evident that a dainty floral
paper suitable for a boudoir would o
utterly out of place In a dining-room,
nor would a leather paper be used la a
The natural conditions - which affect
the room must also be taken into account-
If there are several windows in
the room, and It has a southern expos
ure,, the wall-hanging should be of
sosie dark color. But if the .light
comes from the north, in order to sup
ply the deficiency of sunlight the paper
should: he printed In tones of red oiyel
- low. If tne use of the room is largely
confined to tbe fashionable dinner hour,
when it will be brilliantly Illuminated,
the daylight may be Ignored, and paper

If, on the other hand,, the room Is
dimly lighted conditions which usually
prevail in an oriental room It la im
possible to uae too much color. In fact,
the success' of an oriental room, full of
oriental splendor, with Color every-
here. Is ruined and made vulgar by
tow strong a light. The furniture which
pears tawdry unuer wainary con

Neither can one properly determine
the wallcoverings of a room without

If, the furntshlnrs ara full of ths or-
ate, somber pa pera are desirable. If
we. . furnishings lack variety, variety
h.ould be supplied by the aide-walls and
raoerlea. If a room has dull wood
work, silk papers should be Introduced
to give a cheerful shimmer and glitter.
If, on the other hand, there Is a glare
of white wood or cut glass or china, or
a superabundance of sunlight or lamp
light, dull-flntahed paper will give the
neeaea rest 10 ine eye. -
It should alweya be borne -In mind
that no one feature of a room should
obtrude. The old theory that one must
not construct decoration but almply dee

In the general rules here laid down,
It will be seen that aside from tha ques
tion of color, ths theory of contrast
rather than analogy Is often more ap
propriate; dui wnetner contrast or an
alogy la used there should always be
striving for harmony In the general ef

Touching upon thla feature of . the sub
ject, a well known Authority on house
uw"niHon nas mo rouowing to say:
"If a room be large and well lighted.
tne side wall should be done In large
paiinm. dui or. suDduea colorings;
avoiding the uae of pule tones and of
uuiors, uae greens and nluea;
for unless the room Is very sunshiny,
over-receding colors make a room which
Is already large look larger. Subdued
luminous colors, reds, warm yellowa,
and oranges ara best. Unless tbe room
is nooded with sunlight a preponder-
wnaray tunes snnuia prevail. The
main point to be considered is that
mr ia dui one color treatment for a
large room, well lighted, that which In
