With crutches in hand, I managed to pull off a window treatment installation yesterday.
My knee is the swollen like a balloon today, but I’m so glad we fit this in…
and really all I did was sit with an ice pack
and boss people around!
I’m very pleased with the treatments for my client, Janet Jackson.
She is sweet like the real JJ and I bet she can sing as well… wink wink.
In the pics above and below, we installed one of my favorite window coverings…
Woven Wood Shades~ I’ll show you below why-
We had to bring some color into the brown and brown color scheme and
the simple scalloped valances in the family room did the trick.
(Note: I’m turning over a new leaf with purchasing ready- made pillows more
often than custom… if at all possible. There are so many stylish choices out
there including these cuties from my go to source Homegoods~
which will discuss in another post~ an addiction of mine).
Janet Jackson has a Hill Country vibe going on in her house so we needed to keep it simple by adding flat trim and metal buttons from a great new online source I found…
We carried the pumpkin color into the kitchen with this soft valance with
fabric by Greenhouse Design
and twisted hardware by Design Elements
Let’s chat about the trim.
I’m not a “trim” kind of gal, but JJ is surrounded by men in the household and we
needed to add a special feminine touch. We both went for this trim only because it has a
rustic flair with the metal beads and matte finished spheres.
Now let’s take a look at the wovens…
This is a closeup of a shade without a liner. It is “light filtering”,
however, you can order them with a lining that gives more sun protection.
Such a classic look– an alternative to wood blinds and draperies if that is not for you!
Color and texture options are endless-
The top piece (valance) can be customized as well. Lots of texture going on in this room-
a tribal look with a punch of color
Another benefit is some offer a continuous loop cord and most
have very small stack depth when pulled up…more view for you to enjoy!
Don’t think twice about using woven woods with your modern decor either.
I’m lucky enough to have only one ww shade in my house. It is on a lonely window
in my kitchen which is the perfect solution for an odd window placement.
With our professional measuring and installation
(and of course professional designer advice), you’ll love your new look!
Until next time,
