I don't know about you, but I need a little bit of fun color right about now! It has been rainy and dreary! I have been looking at dirty snow melting on dirty ground and longing for a sprig of "pretty" color to appear. Spring is around the corner but I know it will be just a while before "spring color" arrives. Greenhousedesign.net has fantastic new Lifestyle Collection available for viewing. This picture is their "Bright and Fun" collection and there are twenty-two more collections to view and dream about. Find your favorite and start dreaming and planning your upcoming spring color combinations. Spring will be here before we know it! Yes, it will!
I LOVE SHEER FABRIC ! I love the way if feels on my skin and I love the way if magically alters my skin tone and physical flaws. Sheer fabrics are making a comeback in women's wear in scarves and tops and these soft translucent fabrics are being used more in home interiors. The trend is migrating from Asia, where sheer textiles have long been favored by fashion and interior designers. Luxurious and sensual sheer materials elevate the style of any room. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions uses hundreds of sheer fabrics across their product lines. Just as they can transform your skin tone when worn, they can transform the light entering a window into a soft glow. This year, add them to your home as well as your wardrobe!

I am venturing into unchartered blogging territory and declare our new blogging site to be officially "open" even if under construction. Please bear with me as I discover how it all works and I invite you to continue revisit for the latest in window covering news, creative ideas, and completed projects!
My husband (and design partner)and myself are the third generation of the family to operate our store. We have been graciously invited into your homes to provide window coverings since 1935. And don't let the name mislead you....we have so much more than just shades. We have window treatments of every design, from fabric to shutters, from motorized to manual, and, of course, last but not least, the roller shades that started the whole business! We are a Gallery Showroom for Hunter Douglas Window Fashions displaying their exquisite and innovative product line. Let us share our knowledge with you and invite you to e-mail me questions on problem windows you would like suggestions for or leave a comment on a post! We would love to hear from you!

I found this excellent disclaimer on a fellow blogger's site which I find appropriate to include here as well.
The photos I use on my blog are NOT my own unless otherwise stated. I find a lot of the photos for my posts on Pinterest and various tumblr sites that I cite at the bottom of my post. IF YOU ARE the owner of any of these photos and I have not correctly cited you, I apologize. Original owners are not always attached to a photo that has literally been "TUMBLED" in time through tumblr. Just KINDLY leave me a message and I will either remove the photo or correctly give credit. Thank you!
