Color Helps Make
Dormitory Rooms
The only thing to do to relieve
that horrible sinking feeling which
assails the new student during the
long and lonely evenings is to enter
upon an extensive campaign to make
your cell-like room a bit, more
like home. And extensive is the
correct adjective, for one can never
achieve the desired effect by merely
draping the old high school pennant
over the dresser and calling it a day.
The first thing to do is to brighten
up the general atmosphere by adding
a few warm colors to the dull gray
background. These may be most
easily added by making draperies of
some bright colored material, which
may also be utilized to camouflage
those eccentrically placed alcoves and
niches which seem to be the distin-
guishing feature of dormitory rooms.
They may be hung straight in order
to give height to the low ceilinged
room, or draped artistically to give
a cozy atmosphere.
Of course, durability and prac-
ticality are of prime importance,
and draperies may be durable and
practical as well as bright and color-
ful. Cretonnes are always good and
come in all sorts of exotic colors and
designs, with glazed cretonne espec-
ially popular because it sheds dust
and dirt. A little more subdued in
color though still decorative is monks

lap sacking, while theatrical gauze in

all the pastel shades may be hung
in strips to give a rainbow effect.
The rugs or carpet should carry
out the general effect and color
scheme initiated by the draperies.
If you come from the wide open
spaces and hate the cooped up feel-
ing of a tiny room, you should use
a large carpet to give an effect of
spaciousness. On the whole the soft,
cool colors, grays, blues, and violets,
give the same illusion of space when
combined in simple lines and orderly
