live-lovely-featured

Fans of HGTV’s Design on a Dime will remember former host Kristan Cunningham. She has come a long way over the years, evolving from giving others advice on how to make their homes beautiful to starting her own design company, Hammer and Spear, with her husband, Scott Jarrell. Her products range from furniture to decor, and she recently launched a line of window treatments through Blindsaver.com. Kristan is passionate about windows because she feels that they are a perfect place to begin design efforts. She says, “The best place to start is with windows because it is the most visual thing in a space.” Her window treatments are all reasonably priced because she thinks “it shouldn’t be exclusive to those who are able to spend the most to be able to live a beautiful life; it is my mission is to show everyone how to live a beautiful life.” And Kristan wants you to “live a little bit more lovely by living…

You probably feel like you already have more than enough to deal with when decorating your home. There’s lighting, furniture, accessories, flooring, window treatments, color coordination — the list seems endless. But texture coordination is worth the effort because it adds a completely new dimension to your design scheme. Using a variety of textures makes the room interesting to look at and comfortable to be in. There are many ways to add texture to a room, and following these tips can set you on the right track in creating your design. Approaching Texture If this is your first time considering texture, you may not know how much texture is too much to incorporate into a room. Do you remember your grandmother’s shag-carpeted, clutter-filled den? That’s too much texture. The key, just like with color, is to create textural focal points. You can still go with shag if that’s your thing but try to confine it to an area rug in…

Color-Coordinate Your Room — Without Going Crazy

color coordinate no crazy

Color coordinating a room can be a very intimidating process. The color scheme you choose for your room dictates the mood, atmosphere, and the personal statement you create in your design. With that in mind, choosing palette may seem to be a huge task. By keeping a few tips in mind, you will see that putting together a color-coordinated room is not so difficult after all, and you will love seeing your favorite shades come together in a perfectly designed room. Choose a Base The best place to start is with your base color. The easiest way to pick the color around which you will design the rest of your room is to choose the objects that will stand out most in the room. Perhaps a painting on the wall, an expensive rug, or a bold vase will be the focus of the space. Once you choose your base color, remember that you don’t need to make everything match that…

Picture of the Week: Envision a Clean Look

With select Comfortex Envision Roman Shade fabrics, the clutter of cords visible to your neighbors is a thing of the past. The pleated liner is seperate from the back of the shade, and the cords rest between the liner and the roman shade fabric. This means the clean, tailored look of your shades isn’t dampened by knowing how they look outside your home. This option is available on both Flat Panel and Hobbled romans, so no matter what your style is, we have you and your strings covered. With Envision, your shades are beautiful from front to back.

Picture of the Week: Top-Down / Bottom-Up

This versatile feature allows light in from the top while still offering privacy at eye-level on cellular, pleated, roman, and natural shades. An important consideration is whether you want this feature controlled with cords or without cords. Corded control is ideal when the top of the window is out of easy reach. This is most common above a sink or on a very tall window. Cordless top-down / bottom-up is perfect for children’s rooms and for any window where the top of the window will be within easy reach. Add this convenient feature for a great price today!

What’s more, the Good Housekeeping line of window coverings passed the vigorous testing of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, so their quality is guaranteed like no other shade on the market.
