I just adore the look of wood furnishings and wood blinds together. It evokes a wonderfully warm, cozy feeling that can be difficult to find nowadays. It helps when the client I’m styling for is equally as warm and inviting! Here’s a quick look at a simple before and after that brings wood back into focus.
My client was quite particular what she wanted, and I could see why the moment I stepped into her home. Though she had recently moved into the condo, she already had a designer’s touch grace the space. You could see that she had a very distinct taste that emanated throughout the decor, and it was important that her new window treatments in the kitchen were to express the same, inviting gesture.
I have to say a quick, “Thank you” to the previous owner who had installed wood blinds in the dining room. My client knew she was partial to wood blinds, so we went right to discussing a palette of rich woods that would coordinate with her cabinets. When she caught a glimpse of the Parkland Genuine Wood Blinds and all of the features she could select from, we knew immiately that was the right fit for her kitchen.
Hunter Douglas Parkland Blinds are made from North American hardwoods and crafted into superior blinds both in style and function. One of the problems with the previous window blinds was the very strong sun that radiated through. We chose these particular wood blinds because of their efficiency in minimizing the sun’s UV rays, their durability to withstand that sun day-after-day, and the craftsmanship and finish of the wood that welcomes you into the heart of the home.
What better way to end the experience of creating a warm interior with warm, genuine wood blinds, than with a warm invitation from my client? So pleased with her new condo and newly finished kitchen, she invited me to a trunk show at her home, where we delighted in her friends’ company and she showed off the finishing touches of her beautiful home.
