Interior Design & Window Treatments

  • How Should Your Drapery Measure Up?

    When it comes to custom drapery, one size does NOT fit all. Unlike box stores where the size is pre-determined for an “average” window, custom drapery is created just for your exact window. Because the thing is: there is no such a thing as an “average” window, and your style doesn’t have to fit under “average” limitations! You can achieve the perfect length and width based on your own style and taste. Furthermore, custom drapery help to give you privacy, reduce heating or cooling costs, and improve the overall look of your room by making windows appear larger.

  • Seven Decorating Mistakes to Avoid in Your Home

    Let’s face it. The design catalogs make it look so easy and effortless, but putting together a cohesive look for the décor of your own home can be difficult. Some folks are better at math or cooking than design, and you know what? That’s okay. The world needs all sorts. It just so happens, however, that design is our area of expertise, and in our time in homes all around the Chicagoland area, we’ve seen the same design mistakes made over and over. Today we’d love to share seven common design mistakes and the steps you can take to avoid making them yourself.

  • A Lady Walks Into A Store…

    Okay, there is no joke…just me and my unique sense of humor!
    What I really want to talk about today is the difference between walking into a store to purchase
    window treatments, vs having an experienced designer (such as myself), come to you for an in-home
    consultation.
    What you can expect from purchasing window treatments from a store or online on your own:
    • Window treatments that don’t fit the space or hang right
    • Finding out you bought a color that clashes with the rest of the room
    • Poor quality
    • No “wow” factor

  • To Ripplefold or Not?

    What is a ripplefold? I know what you’re thinking. No, it isn’t what happens to your stomach after you eat a big, satisfying meal. A ripplefold is a modern style of draperies that eliminates the use of drapery pins, while also always holding the shape of a wave (whether open or closed). Also known as the S-fold, this design creates uniform and consistent waves, which gives the curtains a soft and flowy feeling. How do these operate with no drapery pins, you might ask? Instead of drapery pins, there are little snaps sewn into the top hem that fit into the rod carriers.

  • Don’t Get Bent Out of Shape: Choosing the Perfect Table

    You went over to your friend’s house and she showed off her new live edge table for her living
    room. You can’t help it—you’re jealous. You haven’t gotten a new table since 1997! Yet you
    find yourself panicking…”where do I even start?” Whether you are trying to select a dining
    room table or just a simplistic coffee table, there’s no reason to feel daunted. There are many
    shapes, sizes, and styles that can fit your needs. When it comes down to it, the most important

  • Defeat Your Old Wallpaper with the Four S’s

    The peeling piece of wallpaper at the corner of my shower had been bothering me for weeks. When I moved into an old house covered floor to ceiling in wallpaper, I knew the battle would have to begin sooner or later. The steam from the shower had expedited the process in the bathroom--who was I to argue with that? As I gripped the corner and pulled, the wallpaper popped off easily and without resistance. This won’t be that bad, I thought to myself, maybe I should just continue with this wallpaper removal right now!

  • “Touch it Once” Philosophy

    Have you ever come home to your house and kicked off your shoes at the front door, tossed your coat and scarf onto the bench in your hallway, and walked away? I know I’ve been guilty of that more than once myself! This concept can be especially difficult with kids, as well. The problem is your shoes and winter items have a home elsewhere. Now your initially clean hallway shows signs of clutter, and it all happened in one fell swoop. You were so tired after your work day, the easiest solution was to drop it at the door.

  • But, You Followed the Instructions…

  • When Color Meets the Eye

    When we enter a room, our emotions are subconsciously being triggered by what our eyes take in. For example, we can get a sense of openness and lightness in a room that offers natural sunlight, and reflects neutral colors.

    According to research, the colors we chose throughout our home can release chemicals that can influence our emotions and quite possibly, trigger a physical response as well.

  • Mirror, Mirror on the Wall… Can Make a Room Appear Less Small

    The goal of a strategically placed mirror is to provide the illusion that the room is larger, brighter, and wider. By using a mirror as the focal point in a small room, or one without windows, you can create the illusion of depth and lightness, in a space that’s dull, and somber.

  • Custom Motorized Shades….Why Not?

    Custom motorized shades aren’t a fad…they are the future! Seriously, when was that last time you rolled your car window down by hand? Or, got up from the couch to turn on the television? I know I can’t recall a time without my automatic garage door!

    Motorized shades are custom made for beauty and function…and let’s not forget convenience! Think of how nice it is to reach over, grab the remote and adjust the lighting of any room. Or, wake up in the morning and let the sun shine in, without having to get up to open the shades…

  • Why We Celebrate Ground Hog Day

    Ground Hog Day is a popular tradition celebrated on February 2nd. It is believed that the tradition of Ground Hog Day originated from an ancient Christian celebration known as Candlemas Day, in which local clergy would bless candles needed for winter, and distribute them to the people. The celebration marked the midpoint between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. According to the legend; if Candlemas Day was sunny and the skies were clear, a long, rough winter would ensue. But, if the day was cloudy, spring would soon be there.

  • Vinegar & Oil…The Natural Way to Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

    I try to eat clean…so why wouldn’t I want to “clean” clean? Oh, I’ve watched a ton of video’s touting the best products to clean my stainless steel appliances, and you know what I found; that vinegar still works the best.

    I can remember my mother using vinegar and water to clean our windows, when I was growing up. She’d spray the windows, and then wipe them down using last weeks’ Sunday paper to make them shine. Times may have changed as technology has forged ahead, but sometimes, the simple ways are still the most effective in getting the job done.

  • Vitamin D…1, 2, 3!

    I’ve heard vitamin D referred to as the “Sunshine Vitamin” many times, but never gave it much thought…until now. Vitamin D is comprised of D-1, D-2 and D-3, and is produced naturally in our bodies when our skin is directly exposed to sunlight. We can also get it through the foods we eat and if needed, through supplements.

  • Creating a Non-Traditional Holiday Mantle

    We were recently given the challenge of creating a non-traditional holiday mantle for a client’s family room, and we had so much fun! Our clients spend a lot of time in this room—it is in the heart of their home and is set just off of their kitchen. They have three young children that also share and enjoy this space. Our client’s family room is both elegant and comfortable, with pops of rich purples and greens set against neutrals. We selected a purple, green and teal color palette for the mantle to help pull in the color schemes of the surrounding rooms.

  • The Search for the Perfect Sofa

    When you begin your search for a new sofa for your home, you probably aren’t thinking about it in the same way as a long term relationship. Reality is: you probably should consider it just as carefully as you would a life partner. Did you know that most people hang on to a sofa from six to fifteen years before buying something new? The sofa may just outlive a family pet, car, or a trendy hairstyle! This means that it is very important to pay careful attention to the quality elements that give a piece its lasting power.

  • Décor Options for Renters

    Dorm rooms…rentals…your in-laws’ basement…Whatever the residence you won’t live in permanently, the rules remain the same: you are “borrowing” the space and cannot make any big changes to how it looks. Though I am currently a homeowner, many years of my adult life were spent in rental properties. There are, of course, pros and cons to renting. One pro for me was that if something broke, I could call someone else to deal with it. Yet my major, glaring, unavoidable con: I couldn’t do anything permanent to decorate it. No paint. No knocking down walls or elaborate shelving installations.

  • Decorating One Space with Two Opinions

    Moving is difficult enough, but when you also have the task of combining two people’s tastes, things can get…complicated. It doesn’t matter if you are about to move in with your best friend or your life partner: both parties will have items they want to bring into the space, and those items won’t necessarily match. Maybe you both share the same music and love tacos, but that won’t make that whimsical wagon wheel coffee table look great next to her teal velvet sofa.
