Taking Color Risks With Cellular Shades!

Sometimes customers want a specific color, and we do not carry it. Although it can be frustrating, we feel with a little planning, the right look can be achieved. There once was a customer who really wanted a grey blackout shade color for a bedroom window to match other window treatments in their bedroom. I suggested an accent shade color, one that would bring out colors in the room décor, whether it was a color in the comforter or decorative pillow, to tie it all together. Do all shades have to match at all times?

Letting in light from both ends versus just the bottom can make for a different experience. Is the view all clouds or all grass? Colors are processed by how our eyes and brain perceive light. Light filtering shades will make a room’s ambiance more luminous, where black out shades, even if lowered to let light in, will take on a different look and feel. There are lots of factors to consider when planning a room.

Shades don’t have to be uniform. They can be diverse, vibrant, or take on new design characteristics. Look around at the paint colors, the natural lighting versus the artificial lighting. Is this room for entertaining, a baby to sleep, or for watching TV? Sometimes the mood of a room can set the stage for company, or for your everyday atmosphere. Thinking outside the “frame” can open your view to other possibilities you never thought possible. Be subtle or bold – the choice is yours!

Indoor Plants: A Breath of Fresh Air

With summer a few months removed and with winter weather nearing in, now is the perfect time to put your inner green thumb to work.

Plants are usually an overlooked interior design element. Plants are surprisingly versatile and can offer rooms extra color, size and texture, which you can use to make the room feel more warm and inviting. For example, want to make your ceilings look higher than they actually are? Add a tall, thin plant to the room’s corner. Looking to make it feel lengthier? Plants next to the windows will do the trick by acting as a unifying element between the indoors and the outdoors.

Plants that flower help fill your space with extra color. Consider adding Oxalis, African Violets and Orchids to rooms filled with natural colors. These flowers will be exactly what you’ve been looking for! You can even take this a step further by matching the flowering colors with other accents in the room.

Harness Solar Energy this Winter with just Your Shades!

We had our first bought of snowfall this past weekend! Granted, it was mixed with rain and didn’t last all that long, but it was a reminder that the cold months are just a few short weeks ahead. It also leaves some of us scratching our heads and wondering how another year snuck by before we had a chance to escape to Florida…

Just kidding! Winter is beautiful and special just like all the other seasons! Just colder and darker, that’s all!

If this is your first winter season with cellular shades, you’ll get to experience the thrill of feeling the cold air disappear from the inside of your window the moment you close your shade. Woohoo! But even if this is your second, third, or even 15th year with honeycomb shades, you might benefit from this little cheat sheet we’ve prepared so you can use your insulating shades to their full potential.
