J ............... ....... POST*GAZEI-I'E, JULY 3, 2015 Page 8 Honors Youn Four young Italian scholars received scholastic awards from the Pirandello Lyceum during ceremonies held in Boston recently. The Lyceum promotes the recognition of the impact of ltalian language and culture to America, hon- ors outstanding Italian-Americans for their contributions to society and assists young students in furthering their studies of Italian language and culture. The students chosen for the awards were cited for their extraordinary academic achievements in high school and the many activities in which they participated that sup- ported their communities. The Pirandello Lyceum scholars are: Amelia Cecere from Burlington High School; Juliana Hillis from Stoneham High School; Niccolas Hood from Revere High School and Michael Reynolds from Revere High School. Rosario Cascio, the President of the Pirandello, praised the students for their academic achievement and publicly thanked the members and sponsors of the scholastic awards. "The students selected represent the future of America," said Cascio. "They also stand as an example of the importance of the best of Italian and American values: respect of heritage, hard work, family strength and personal sacrifice." President Cascio said that all the students plan to include Italian studies in the college careers. Pirandello Committee members, sponsors and scholarship recipients.

Committe Chairman Vincent Fazzolari, Dr. Anna Rocca, recipient ~lia Rose Cerere, Filippo Frattaroli, Dr. Dom Amara, Salvatore Bramante, Filippo Frattaroli, Jr. As a designer I often use the term "warm colors" or " cool colors." Understanding these terms will help you when choosing colors. Warm Colors Warm colors are red, yel- low, orange and combina- tions of them all. Combined you will have terra cotta, browns and what I con- sider jewel tones. Think of sunshine and heat. These colors will give a large room a cozy feel- ing. Try painting a large family room terra-cotta to make it feel cozy. Cool Colors Cool colors are blue, green, light purple. These colors help calm and soothe and remind us of water and sky. Cool colors make a room 'feel larger. Try painting a small powder room a light purple or an ice blue to make it appear larger. Balance You should always com- bine warm and cool colors in a room. This creates balance. ...... If you want to create a cozy feeling with warm co]Iors, add a touch of cool and vice versa. When you decorate a space, it is important to first think about the mood you would like to create. Start with selecting your colors, warm or cool. Add contrast and finalize with balance. Complimentary Colors are opposite each other on the color wheel. Ceiling Tip In a large room with a high ceiling, try tinting the ceiling. For instance, when I'm decorating a room with high ceilings, I always take my wall color and have the ceiling paint tinted 30% of that color. It softens the room and tones the otherwise stark white ceiling down. Need assistance putting it all together?
