Why is it so hard to dress up your sliding glass door? And why is the price always so expensive? When it comes to window treatments, you don’t have to think so hard about the options. What do I want; a blind or a shade? Pretty simple stuff, right? But when it’s your sliding glass doors turn to get a new outfit, you cringe! Eek! No one wants the old school vinyl verticals in their house. Please, you would never have company over again.

Reclaiming Wood for your Cottage Space

Reclaiming Wood for your Cottage Space

Getting that cottage décor to exactly what we are looking for, isn’t always an easy hurtle to jump.  A very popular look in decorating today is the weather wood, and country home trend. Not all of us have antiques, or naturally beautiful “weathered with time” furniture pieces, for that one of a kind look that goes hand in hand with the country home feel.

Hot and Cold Cottage Spaces

Hot and Cold Cottage Spaces

When choosing the perfect window coverings for a cottage there are a lot of things to consider.  Most often have a set décor that we are trying to fit the blinds or shades into, and we want it to mold and blend considerably with the surroundings and become a part of the space.  When we are renovating or just revamping an old or outdated look we want something to tie in the space but that will bring an ease of use and even functionality to the space.

Seeing the View with Sunweaves

It’s a beautiful warm and breezy Saturday summer morning, you’re sitting at the breakfast table in the cottage, and the fresh smell of recently brewed coffee surrounds you. You breathe in the smell deeply, you feel the warmth from the mug in your hands, and inhale intensely after each sip of fragrant French roast.  You smile and look up from the mug, squinting unpleasantly, trying to see what would normally be the beautiful image of the lake through your large picture window that just happens to get the full, hot, blasting, east sun in the morning hours.

Home Away from Home

Home Away From Home

When decorating your home away from home, whether it’s a small tiny place or a big open space, it’s your escape.  Living in a country that gets to see all four seasons, we tend to appreciate the nicer weather and enjoy what we call the “cottage season”.  When we go up to the cottage not only do we want to enjoy ourselves with a change of scenery in the nice weather, but we want to feel just as comfortable in our surroundings as if we were actually at home.
