Our Go-To Window Treatment

Throughout our years of homeownership, Scott and I have tried it all. From the paint on our walls to the colors of our linens and the style of furniture, we’ve made mistakes—large and small! And discovered that just because I may love a red dining room in an inspiration photo, it doesn’t mean I’ll love it in our own […]

Measuring for Natural Shades & Drapes for a Nursery

This picture might look familiar to you since I shared my nursery design plans last month. In the meantime, I’ve been planning even more to make this space come together before the little one arrives. The shades and drapers are two of the big facets of the design. When it comes to newborn sleep, we […]

5 Ways to Create Big Impact in Your Kitchen

What do you think of when you hear the term home décor? My first thoughts go to pillows, rugs, my collection of sentimental items on the bookcase, or my favorite photo on my bedside table. What I don’t always think of is décor in the kitchen! Until we completed our kitchen renovation last year, I didn’t realize how necessary […]

Introducing Bali Sheer & Layered Shades!

Ever dreamed of merging the best features of two things to get a superior result?

This month, we are moving on to the details of the natural shades we chose to complete the look, and how to get the minimal, fitted style that makes the design what it is. […]

How Does a Room Make You Feel?

It’s no secret that around here we’re big fans of blinds, shades, and draperies (sometimes together!) to spice up a naked window. Recently, I shared with you the window fabrics of our home, ranging from casual Roman shades to long and flowing curtains. Friends have asked, “How do you decide which treatment to put into which room?“ […]

Mix and Match Drapery Hardware for Every Style

Coming from a designer, this probably isn’t a surprise, but new drapes just bring out the design geek in me. I relish finding the perfect accent to my room and in making sure that all elements—down to the hardware—are in sync with my design. I even think the hardware and how it works with the […]

The (Window) Fabrics In Our Home

As Scott and I continue renovating each of the rooms in our house—from the reading room to the dining room to the bedroom—at some point, we find ourselves debating fabric swatches when we’re considering window treatments. Our sweet spot for coverings has surprisingly been the ever-casual-but-cool Roman shade, as we now have four rooms where we’ve […]
