It’s Almost Spring…Right?

I realize that it’s still cold outside.  Even though this weekend has been a balmy 34 degrees in Wisconsin, we are in for another cold snap during the week.  Not looking forward to it.

So, when I saw some of the lastest outdoor fabrics from Greenhouse Design, I began daydreaming…. Continue reading

Supportive Design

One of my very favorite fabric vendors, Greenhouse Design, is donating a portion of their sales for October to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research.

If you are so inclined, check out the fun fabrics they offer – their website is easy to search by color, pattern and more!  While they only sell to those in the trade, I’m happy to get you pricing if you are interested in any fabrics for your next decorating project.  They even have some close-out fabrics in limited amounts that sell for $6-$25 per yard!

Fun Valance Style for a Home Office

I just installed (well, not personally – my installer extraordinaire actually did the heavy lifting!) a great new valance at the home of a long-time client.  She wanted something different in her home office, and something that wouldn’t hide the architecture of the tiered window.

This is what we came up with!  Notice that the fabric pattern is exactly the same on each panel – that is a sign of good-quality craftsmanship.  It’s a very simple concept, that makes this room special.

What do you think?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

It Doesn’t Take Much…

I firmly believe that window treatments add the finishing touch to any room.  Even for homeowners who prefer things simple, with clean lines, a top treatment or drapery panel finishes any space beautifully.

In fact, I once counted myself as one who preferred windows to be open.  I don’t like elaborate, over-the-top window treatments.  Instead, a simple blind or shade to take care of the light and privacy issues was good enough for me.

However, the longer I have worked in this business, the more I have come to believe in the power of the window treatment.  Below are a few photos of a project we just installed.  My client wanted to keep her window trim exposed, and she needed light control and privacy, as this is her master bedroom.

We opted for a custom made Roman shade, which adds softness, color and pattern to the space, as well as taking care of the privacy issues.  It doesn’t take much to add punch to a room with a window treatment. What do you think?

We had it made of a striped faux silk fabric with a gorgeous drape.  The stripe picks up all the colors in the room, tying things together beautifully.  When the shade is raised, it creates its own valance!  Simple, elegant – enough.

Need Fabric?

Greenhouse Design is offering some amazing prices on home decor fabrics during the month of May!  Take a peek at their website for some great deals, at a fraction of their regular prices.  You will see that prices are not listed, as the company deals through designers only.  But, here is a breakdown for your reference:

Value Fabrics:
$24.95/yd Feature Fabrics
$18.95/yd Outdoor Fabrics
$12.95/yd Designer Special
$2.95/yd Fabric Sale


The Value Fabrics are the groups on sale now.  Prices do not include shipping, which can vary depending on the size of the order.  I find it generally ranges between $10-$25 for most orders.

If you have a reupholstery, window treatment or bedding project coming up, take a peek at these fabrics – I found some must-haves for my own home!  Feel free to contact me if you would like to place an order.  Of course, I’m also available to help you design your new window treatments or fabric accessories, as well, and I have talented people who can create them for you!

At those prices, you may want to come up with new projects; did you notice that there are outdoor fabrics included in the sale??  Hmmmm – new patio cushions or drapery panels, perhaps??

Happy shopping!
