Geometric Décor: Keep Your Balance

gudVibrant geometric prints are all the rage. Having a modern geometric print, whether it’s hexagons, diamonds, stripes, or the Greek key pattern, makes a statement.

How do you strike a balance? The geometric prints are bold, but you don’t want to go overboard. Pick out a favorite piece to reupholster in a geometric print or even use it for your window treatments, but balance it out with a more traditional companion piece. Balance can come in the form of a traditional mirror, side table, or sofa.

What are you waiting for? Get that traditional shaped wing back chair out of storage and reupholster it with a geometric print. Be unique and bold, yet balanced.

For more information about fabric choice and reupholstering your favorite pieces in a bold, yet balanced way, contact Gamino Upholstery & Décor.

What’s Old is New Again

Are you in love with some of the new modern designs? Well, not all those modern designs are new. I’m sure you’re not surprised, but mid-century modern is new once again.

If you happen to stumble upon a piece where you love the lines, but it’s been loved a bit too much, there is a solution. Much of the mid-century modern furniture is built well, so it is structurally sound, but the foam and upholstery need to be replaced.

This is where it gets fun. You can add your personal style to the old bones. Go neon. Go floral. Go to your specific style. Make what’s old new again and treasure it for many more years to come.

Contact us at Gamino Upholstery & Decor if you would like to make your old find new again

Freshen Up Your Décor with Pastels

Spring is such a fresh time of year. The flowers begin to bloom, and with Easter on Sunday, a trend worth mentioning is pastels.

Pastels bring a clean, delicate, and fresh look to your home. Even if your home isn’t decorated with pastels, it’s worth trying for a seasonal update. Add throw pillows in robin egg blue, buttercream yellow, lilac, and all shades of pink. You can dabble in pastels with a new duvet cover, throws, and even a valance.

As spring turns to summer, you can easily change all these elements to mimic the season. Enjoy spring and the freshness it brings to your home.

Find out how you can freshen up your home’s look this spring at Gamino Upholstery & Décor.

Window Treatments that are Right for You

Window Treatments say a lot about a home and its style. When you’re beginning to think about window treatments for your home, there are a few things to consider.

 Fabric

Of course, fabric is the foundation of the drape, but the type of fabric sets the tone. If your new window treatments are in your bedroom, you may want a heavier fabric to block out the lights and sounds. If your window treatments are in a living area or den, you may want something more light and airy, think sheers or linen, since it’s where you spend your daylight hours.

 Header

The header is how you hang your window treatments. Yes, even the way you hang your curtains speaks to the formality of your room. A pleated header is a more formal style that adds a sense of luxury to your window treatments.
