Earth Tones: Outside In!

By Gina G.

One of my favorite color palettes is earth tone.  I love utilizing the colors we find outside in nature to decorate the insides of homes.  I especially appreciate the contrast that earth tones allow.  In particular, I enjoy contrasting greens, reds, and browns.  For instance, having light colored greens contrasting deep, dark browns with accenting reds, or any combination of this really can bring a relaxing warmth to any room.

Baby it’s Cold Outside

By: Meghan

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost- brr! Something is nipping at your nose, your toes, and it’s only November! It shouldn’t be that cold, and oh the heating cost! Time to do something about those windows where the chill is coming in. You could crank up the heat, oh wait- you want to buy presents this year- and not everyone has a fireplace. Even if you do you are already cleaning- soot isn’t a good look. Maybe wrap the windows in plastic? Make everyone where parkas, and mittens? Though plastic takes away from your decor, and eating cranberry sauce and pie in parkas? Eating cookies in mittens?

Can the real wood blind please stand up?

By: Ashley

“Do you sell shutters?” This question has been popping up repeatedly lately, no matter what window treatment facility your at. This is due to the growing demand of consumers wanting a product similar to traditional wood blinds, but with a slightly different opening style and look. Traditional shutters are mounted from the outside of your house and used to combat extreme weather conditions; i.e. tropical storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. These same depicted shutters can be found still on homes located in the midwest and south. Nowadays shutters have evolved and moved inside homes. Modern shutters, found in various colors, are normally found mounted inside homes. They are unable to be lifted up and down like traditional blinds, but you can tilt the slats with a rod that is normally in the middle of the shutter blind. Shutters are very nice in style and can accentuate your decor, but they can become a hassle to install and a damper on a rainy day fund.

By: Sherry

Decorating formal living spaces can be an expensive project. People think they need roman shades to create formality, when there are many types of shades or blinds that can dress up windows for less. When picking your blind or shade, choosing one with a pattern, valance, or deep rich tone can change the feeling in your room into a formal atmosphere. This can be achieved with a patterned roller shade, a decorative valance on a faux or real wood blind, or a dark espresso pleated or cellular shade. Decorating with any of the these choices in a blind or shade is less expensive then a roman shade and helps create a formal space.
