Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 8, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, April S, 1011. THE LETHBKTJflGE DAILY HERALD The Season's Showing of Floor Covering H N injOdlcioualy selected rag or carpet may quite ruin a room otherwise furnished in tbe boet of taste. We enter rooms sometimes in which Ihe Inslsltnt pattern of the rug or jandy colors the furniture eeem Insignificant nnd the draperies and. other aecoratltonH quite characterless. (The floor ooverlug should be a suit able background for the furnishings, us the wall covering should be for the pictures. It must not vlolato one of the most Important laws of decoration ibat the color tone of llio room should phasic downwsrd from the celling, since If tho nig or carpet 5s lighter than the walls an effect of top-heaviness la pro- duced. It Is necessary to preserve a eer balance of values in regard t to obtain an artistic Vlth plain walls and simple furniture, or carets of considerable warmth ud character may be selected, but if bo walls have been treated freely, or be draperies have much figure tbe un- obtrusive designs in soft colonies will be found most satisfactory. If one's purse does not prohibit Ori- ental rugs tbe matter of selection Is greatly simplified, because, thougb they are often most intricate in design the colors are so wonderfully blended that their effect is subdued and neu tral. 1-iflch year sees thi domestic rugb approaching nearer to this ideal, how ever.

Those having he plain centers with two-lone borders coavectional design especially favored. Scotch art rugs are particularly du rable and tbe manufacturers have giv- en especial attention this season to meeting the demand for designs that will harmonize with the latest ideas in wail papers nnd draperies. Inexpensive rugs for the summer home are in great demand jnst now. Griiss rugs and fiber rues are largely used, and tbe revival of the.rag rug furnishes most attractive possibilities for quaint and durable floor coverings. TUese rug we agt rtot of color as the old fasbioned kind to be. but are made from selected ma- tt-rials and colors to harmonize wlttl other furnishings. Tf one wishes to furnish the filling for these rugs any weaver will make them up at a very reasonable price. Partly worn sheets. denim, unbleached or old cur- tains are suitable for tbt: filling of the heavier rugs, while for small rugs to be used in the bath room lighter weight material, such as lawn and gingham are desirable. It Is not possible to produce the va- riety of effects in the braided rag rug, but nothing IB more in the Colonial bedroom than ono of these hand-made rugs. They may be braid- ed of strips of outing flannel or calico and simple designs introduced by cin- M r New Suggestions in China and Napery fp WELL appointed table no longer means necessarily an! expensively appointed one.

In the English porcelain tbe Indian tree pattern is most effective, out It wise to consider if ono will be able to use it exclusively, because it is a pat- tern of so ranch color aud character that odd pieces do not look well with it.
