Large windows can be a challenging thing to tackle. While they offer stunning views, they have a high cost in privacy. Many traditional window coverings do not cover large windows without seperating the blinds into multiple panels. Vertical blinds cover most windows, but have an undesirable sway to the vanes and lack a designer feel.
For a more elegant, stylish look in any room, consider vertical sheers. Available from Levolor, Comfortex, and Bali, these beautiful window treatments combine the elegance and soft light diffusion of draperies with the light control. Our featured brand in this category is Levolor’s Perceptions. Levolor has carefully selected fabrics that coordinate with or perfectly match many other window treatments by Levolor. In addition, the colors available perfectly match many colors Levolors Roman, Roller, Vertical, and Cellular collections. Levolor’s innovative vertical products are available in cordless wand control for a clean, uncluttered look. If the traditional cord and chain controls are more your style, check out Levolor’s Backstacker feature. Backstacker is exclusive to Levolor and causes the vanes to gather from the back of the stack. This allows a clean, unobstructed view when the sheers are partially opened, rather than a gathering of material in the center of the window. With Levolor, you can truly change your perception of light.
Last year after my son’s birth, my husband and I moved out of our large one bedroom apartment to a smaller, more affordable two bedroom space while we save for a home. The biggest challenge we face is less space, and our family photos exemplify the dilema perfectly. Only two walls in our new home have enough space to hold photos, so I needed to pair down the clutter. I had a huge hodge-podge of frames that were the product of having my pictures spread throughout a large apartment with high ceilings.
The first step in the process was to go through the photos and decide which were the most important. Trimming out old snapshots and moving them to the family photo albums helped a lot. I then narrowed it down to the special shots from specific occasions- wedding photos, holidays, and my son’s introduction to his family. I still needed some inspiration, so I went online to look at various collage frames. On Target.com I saw a lot of creative and fun frames, but nothing with the flexibility I wanted- many had inspirational phrases I didn’t want to be stuck with for years. What I wanted was the ability to adjust the style of the frame throughout the year, not a one-size-fits-all greeting card phrase.
Enter Crayola. Crayola sells “Window Crayons”- basically non-toxic grease markers in primary colors. You can write or draw on a glass pane and then come back later and wipe the glass clean with glass cleaner, even months down the road, and create a different design. This can also be done with eyeliner, but eyeliner isn’t available in the colors I wanted. I purchased the Window Crayons from a hobby store and picked up two RE Collage Frames with white matting from Target. I three 8″x10″ black frames from my orginal collection. I shifted the large photos into the 8″x10″ frames and put those frames in the dining room. On the frames with matting, I used the Crayola Window Crayons to create a generalized, abstract winter design that will look nice until spring peeps its head over the horizon and I’m ready to change the design. These two frames will look great and fit comfortably in the living room.
Any space, no matter how small, can be a comfortable home. The key is being flexible and creative, and accepting that in small spaces less is more.
