Their lawns are scarred with shortcut trails, and shrubs are trampled by children and dogs bee-lining for the doorway. But never fear: the cure is here. The common concrete slab and dinky overhang can be transformed into an attractive entry that guides callers to the door. It's as simple as constructing a divider screen and installing benches or planters to point the way. Possibilities for screen design are unlimited. A basic framework can be made by attaching a 4x4-inch western wood post to the over- hang at the edge of the slab and connecting it to the wall beside the doorway. A simple screening of 2x2- inch lumber, evenly spaced, al- lows air and light to penetrate but defines and shields the door- way. A louvered screen is at- tractive, but is more compli- cated to construct. Screen Protects Plants Where a shield against weath- er is desirable, a solid screen of butted boards is a good choice. Some entries look well dressed up with more intricate designs, using boards of varying width set in a pattern, or more widely spaced uprights with a design of panel insets. The privacy screen is a good backdrop for shrubs and vines, which it protects by re-directing foot traffic. A series of low benches or planter boxes extending from Simple Shield Enriches Entry Plain entry becomes distinctive through simple addition of privacy shield and benches, which point to entry, protect yard from foot traffic.

Once relegated to the living room, it has now moved throughout the home and is now suitable for any floor area including bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, play areas and other almost unheard of places -----even walls. To avoid boredom in the old concept of "wall-to-wall carpet- ing", many decorators and arch- itects are coordinating different areas with entirely different pile fibers in like or dissimilar pat- terns and prints. By using con- trasting colors or contrasting types of carpet one can desig- nate particular areas. Perfect Coordinators Shag and cut pile can be per- fect coordinators for practical and functional reasons as well as for creation of mood and atmosphere. Functionally, cut pile is ex- tremely good for heavily trav- eled areas such as halls, stairs and entrances and is often used to denote formality. With the advent of the 5/64" gauge cut pile carpet, hard surface areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms become alive and warm with cttshioned comfort and noise control. Shags, too, are warm and inviting carpets. They are quite good for creat- ing a relaxing mood and are good to use in lounges, resting or conversation areas. Thus with their utility established we may examine good coordhaating examples. Try One of These In a formal living room, a cut pile may be used. Family room, den, or library opening off the living room could be done in the companion shag. An informal living area stretch- ing into a dining area can be beautifully coordinated with pile carpet in dining room and shag in living area. Some living rooms have con- versation pits. Shag carpeting can be used in the pit thus set- ting the stage for warm, inti- mate conversation. The plush carpet (pile) can be used around the rest of the room. An interesting use of the companion cut pile and shag carpets would be to do a music or stereo room. Now that ear- pets have moved to the walls, a plush carpet could be "walled" witb a floor done in shag. Maay homes have kitchen family room areas with no di- viding walls. The cut piles can be used in kitchen area and the dining area and the companion shag can be used in the seating area. Thus, you have used car- pet to take the place of walls and physically separate the ac- tivity areas. Anytime one has a large area or system of rooms that need to be treated as a whole decora- tively and yet need to be sepa- rated into smaller activity or conversational areas, cut pile and shag companion rugs are the answer. Accent Rugs... New Art Form There's a new art form afoot with the advent of new design direction in accent rugs being issued in limited editions by some manufacturers as floor art, created for specific settings, de- signed to the specifications of the individual or the designer. These rugs are not created for a market, but for indviduals. In this situation, the designer has absolute freedom. Colors are totally unrestricted; yarns can be skein-dyed to order, or can come from the inventory of many colors available. aateap k~rza~m Zdrpunq v -trltzt "pooa~ld "uzarl~ ,~uome #ulfapocr~a.r 9~auza$~q zo/ pu~ ~alTPJ~r Mu~a~oz~ o~, Shag and cut pae combine for warmth box, NN~. coming out strong if.or st~2mg in the Seventies. The fiber that does everything well . . . it's resilient, bulks beautifully . . . now is being introduced in in- novations like needlepunch wool carpet which will provide a luxurious floorcovering that is very versatile. Another unique process of manufacture, an exclusive ad- aptation of knitting, also sym- bolizes the new affinity of fash- ion and home fashions in the plans for wool in the Age of Aquarius. Several months ago, a fleecy broadloom and rugs shaped like sheepskins using this new process were intro- duced. Another first for wool, a washable wool rug, is now available in a flokati styling. Other innovations for the natural fiber include a registered process for piece-dyed wool which can be produced in three colors with a single dye bath. One dunk and voila . . . a gorgeous tri-colored floor-c0ver- ing! And the new wool pro- cesses are adaptable to the latest dyeing techniques in all con- structions like shag, loop and plush. iii!~i! i);!ii!iiiii~ ii! ~:i,iiiiiii!iil For beauty, versatility, economy, wood is the answer to your home improvement and building problems.
