Roman Shades - and a promo!

Photos courtesy of Graber 

We are seeing more and more interest in Roman shades to dress the windows as of late.  These, from Graber's Regal Collection shown with the cordless lift option (*free promotion right now available through May 31, 2018).   Also shown with drapery in 
Esmeralda and hardware all by Graber.

These relaxed Roman Shades from Graber's Ainslie in Arctic,  
are great for a casual office, nursery (where we ALWAYS recommend the cordless option for safety) 
mudroom or anywhere that you want a look 
that is dressed but not fussy.

Small Town Life

I made a trip to my favorite hardware store for some last-minute supplies for a recent 
window treatment installation and couldn't resist taking this picure.    
I mean,  just look at all the years of  love and hard work and elbow grease 
that have made this cabinet so charming.  I love the drawers. 
 I love the labels.  I love the tools and gadgets that make our lives easier.   
But mostly, I love that this kind of store being run by helpful, honest folks still exists. 

Open since 1914,  Nichols Hardware in downtown Purcellville, Virginia 
still gives personalized attention and cares about its customers.   
Thank you,  Nichols.

                    Helping clients with design 
                                       is our passion.
                   (and so is a clean desk.  But you'd never
                       know by looking.)

Custom Roman Shade

with a 2 week turnaround?     

Sometimes it all just comes together.   

This wide (over 70") window needed 
light control and privacy.   

Our RMCoco fabric "Frolic" in cream
with a 3" band in celadon green  
gave it a personalized touch and blended the room 
colors together perfectly.    

So when the fabrics were in stock and the workroom 
didn't have much backlog, our client got a happy phone call to schedule installation  
within 2 weeks of her order!   

PS  The wall paint color is Sherwin-Williams' Agreeable Gray #7029.

Caracole's Tag Line

              This Winfield Tybony Wallcovering 
                                          got us thinking about. . . 

Caracole Classics with a 
 chair that is just as pretty from the back 
as from the front.  See the wood fretwork? 

A dresser with a nod to mid-century style
but updated for today is our

"Natural Intuition" as well.

Fabric background by

Osborne and Little in "Martineau"

Caracole is right;   "Good Ideas Only"  indeed.

Dressing the Bed

Dressing 6 different beds last week (for more than one house) 

has us wondering how you like to dress your bed?   


Comfy?      Glam?     Elegant? 

Grandma's vintage quilt?     

What can we offer that will make you rest better and feel equipped to energize through your day?  

In upcoming posts we will be discussing trends we are seeing.  Like a return to luxurious bedding, but with less - a lot less - pillows (We hear you gentlemen cheering!)

And what has happened to the bedskirt?
Stay tuned........
