Breakfast in a Flower House

By: Ashley H.

The traditional place to eat in any house used to be the dining room, but with the dynamic of family and time changing with the pace of society, this is not the norm anymore. There are many people that use their kitchen or their breakfast nook area. The concept of a breakfast nook is very similar to an enclosed porch. This room usually sits off the kitchen area and has big open windows so that you can enjoy sunlight and an outside garden view. With spring upon us already, and summer right around the corner, this is the perfect time to spruce up your breakfast nook area and give it a floral makeover.

Florals – I think not….

By: Anthony008_p92_012

 

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 don’t understand why people are so obsessed with floral patterns. When I think of florals, they remind me of my grandma’s house. My grandma’s couch, lampshades, area rug, throw pillows, and wallpaper were all different floral prints. I think they are old fashioned, and don’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.

By: Gina rosalie_white_019

 

It’s Spring and you’re looking for new window treatments for your most comfortable (and sacred) of spaces, your man cave.  You’ve had a plain one dimensional shade or blind there for what seems like an eternity, but the woman in your life keeps urging you to do something a little different, something that she can live with too.  It seems like you’ve reached an impasse.  There’s no way you’re putting the rosy colored floral patterned shade she’s picked out for the space, but she’s not budging on keeping the status quo either.

To covet coventry

By: AishaVV3-622

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. It’s been a while since I have had anything new on the windows. With the changing of seasons I had decided to change out the blinds. The old ones I used to have had turned dingy and grey. They were cheap one inch vinyl blinds. They served there purpose by allowing me to have my privacy and being cost effective at the same time. They were also relatively easy to clean. When starting my search for the perfect product I kept this in mind. I wanted something different that would be able to have all the same functionalities, but provide me with a new look.

Floral Stereotypes

By: AshleyCameo White paneltrack 2

Florals are feminine

They don’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.
