Have you ever gone shopping for blinds with your significant other? I haven’t had that privilege yet. But, as a design consultant, I’ve seen a lot of debates over window treatments. One of the biggest is over floral patterns. I donâ€™t understand why people are so obsessed with floral patterns. When I think of florals, they remind me of my grandmaâ€™s house. My grandmaâ€™s couch, lampshades, area rug, throw pillows, and wallpaper were all different floral prints. I think they are old fashioned, and donâ€™t even get me started on the colors they usually come in. I remember seeing them in avocado green prints with off-white backgrounds, not flattering to any room they were put in.Continue Reading
My indoor sunroom is my get-a-way from the hustle and bustle of every day city life. It’s an enclosure that provides me with space and absolute comfort. A place where I can unwind.

During the day the sun pours through the room at such an intensity that it has begun to ruin all of our furniture. Our furniture is also made from black leather so it attracts the heat even more. It gets so hot, that we cant even sit down on our couches without almost melting to it and forget about trying to get up from them. It’s like being super glued down. The carpet is also beginning to fade. So our main concern for the room is to cover our windows as quick as possible.Continue Reading
Florals are feminine
They donâ€™t have to be. Of course pale muted hues in pink are very girly, but florals are hardly limited to this stereotype. To avoid the feminine floral, stay away from small prints and faded colors. Add masculine pieces to the room. Leather and wood furniture create a more rustic feel. Or stick to a neutral color scheme.Continue Reading
