Find the Right Window Treatments for You!

Are you in need of new window treatments?

With a huge variety of colors, styles, and types to choose from, finding the perfect treatments for your window can be exhausting. Here are three different types of treatments to help simplify what you are looking for:

  • Draperies: Draperies are a classic window treatment with a bold, timeless look. They work with any decorating style, making them both a versatile and elegant choice. Some of our favorites include the waterfall style, the Barcelona Pleat, Camisole, and French Pleats. You can also let these curtains fall naturally or you can tie them back, giving a more formal look. It only makes sense that these are the most commonly purchased curtains, the options are endless! For more styles of draperies, click here.
  • Valances: Valances, easily paired with blinds or curtains, are a great decorative choice to conceal any drapery hardware. Some popular valances are the balloon valance, swag valance, and ascot valance. While they offer an edgy look, they can also add a very classy look when complemented with other curtains. For more valance styles, click here.
  • Roman shades: Roman shades combine functionality with fashion. While these offer dimension and beauty to any room, roman shades also are intended to entirely block out sunlight. While most curtains have a “rippled” look, roman shades are a solid, smooth treatment when completely closed. For a full list of roman shades, click here.

The Need for Balance

If you hadn’t noticed, balance is a key aspect in your life! From multitasking your schedule to interior design, balance matters! So as you begin decorating for the spring season, make sure you are maintaining a balanced look in your house.

Here are a few tips to consider when designing:

  • Symmetry is essential. While everything doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) perfectly symmetrical, it is important to have a few key pieces of your room symmetrical. Matching accent chairs are an easy way to add more color for the spring while adding the symmetrical look your room craves.
  • If you have a large piece of décor on the center of a table or wall, offset it with something smaller. This maintains balance while keeping the focus on your centerpiece. This also prevents a bare look and is less predictable than a symmetrical look. Struggling to find the perfect offset piece? A custom furniture piece may be your solution.
  •  Balance with colors! If your decor or furniture clashes, bring it together by incorporating the same color. If your furniture doesn’t match, perhaps it’s time to reupholster your couch and choose a fabric that matches your other furniture. Perhaps your favorite piece of furniture is something you can’t part with but doesn’t match anything else… Create matching window treatments! This creates a cohesive look for your room and now makes that one piece of furniture belong.

Pantone embraces the concept of “two is better than one”. For the first time ever, Pantone announced two colors for 2016. The new colors are a dynamic-duo, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Rose Quartz, a delicate and feminine color, offers elegance and simplicity to any space. On the other hand, Serenity brings a rich yet soft tone with a relaxing and soothing vibe.

3 Reasons To Lather Your Furniture With Leather

If you are looking to refresh your furniture but are not sure on the fabric, consider leather! Leather is classic, trendy, and can fit flawlessly in almost any home. We all know how sleek leather looks, but there are functional purposes to having leather furniture as well. 

  1. Leather doesn’t wear as easily as many fabrics, and it also keeps its shape without stretching for much longer.  This means you can enjoy your leather furniture longer without worrying about having to replace the upholstery. 
  2. Leather is more repellent of stains or rips, simply because it is a tougher material. If you enjoy actually living on your furniture, you appreciate surfaces that are easy to clean up because…well… accidents happen. 
  3. Lastly, leather comes in a variety of texture styles and colors that easily enhance the look of any room. From rich oranges and reds to the classic neutral and mute tones, leather brings a whole new edge to your style.

It’s the Season for Reupholstering!

We are now in the swing of fall, which means the holiday season is right around the corner! If you host for the holidays, you are familiar with the hectic preparations that go beyond just cooking – decorating, cleaning, preparing your guest bedrooms, etc.

Now is the perfect time to give your furniture a makeover before the holiday season. Reupholstering a piece or an entire set of furniture will give your space an entirely new look that you will enjoy throughout the new year.

Here are some essentials to consider giving a fresh look to before the holidays:

  • Reupholster Old Furniture – Do you have a favorite couch but the fabric and cushions are worn and outdated? Or maybe your dining room chairs have rips or stains in them. Rather than purchasing new furniture, consider a fresh, new look with reupholstering your pieces. Reupholstering allows you to choose the fabric or leather you want, get quality foam so that your furniture will last longer, and still get to keep the furniture you love.
