"In the hope of reaching the moon, men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet."- Albert Schweitzer

June is peony month! They are blooming in a multitude of colors, drooping heavy on bushes lush with green leaves. Grandmother's yard is overflowing with these fragrant (and ant covered) showy perennials and a visit to her garden is a feast for the eyes and nose!

I am sure that fabric designer Anne Selke's inspiration for her latest line of pattern and color has been born from a walk through Grandmother's garden. (I would dare say that she is a peony lover!) Her vibrant colors are a feast for the eyes and delightful to use in demure dabs or bold statements. Greenhouse Design showcases her many fabrics on line for ease of access while researching.

Another summer inspiration is the new Hunter Douglas Vignette Tiered Roman Shade with a cordless operation in 34 new colors! This "stackable" design does not roll up into a headrail like its predecessor, but actually stacks like a classic roman shade. Best of all, you have the option of no cords! There is a low profile, fabric covered headrail that requires less mounting depth - ideal for shallow windows and french doors.

Smooth, neutral white backing that lends itself to a clean exterior appearance and the exclusive cordless feature is a child safety plus compared to typical roman shades.

June is blooming with flowers, colors and new products. Please stop by for a visit and let us share with you all our summer specials! Look forward to seeing you soon!
