Paper-Hangings. A safe rule with regarrd to paper-hangings is to choose nothing that looks extravagant or unnatural: no staring pattern or colour, which would only be tit to make caps for May-day sweeps.

Regard should be had to the uses of an apartment: a drawing-room should be light and cheerful, a parlour should look warm and comfortable without being gloomy : bed-room papers should be cool and quiet, and generally of a small pattern, and of such colours as harmonise with bed furniture and other fittings.
