The Jewelry of Your Home

Welcome Back Blog Readers,

The weather has been grey lately, and we are all looking for something to brighten up our lives, and homes, with. What better way than with color and pattern! There are lots of ways you can bring brightness to your home. Usually we think of a new wallcovering or throw pillows or furniture. But, what about your drapes; this can create a unique and interesting contrast when set against a textured wallcovering.

I’ve found two amazing designers who do just that. John Robshaw has a collection with Duralee that focuses on block-printed textiles and petite prints. His style is a casual bohemian taken from his travels and incorporates texture with pattern to create bold, contemporary designs.

Then there is Kim Parker. Parker has teamed up with Clarke & Clarke to create her Art Book Collection. Utilizing fashionable color such as violet and citron, Parker’s designs are enthusiastic, creative and daring styles. Whether the print is one color or a whole rainbow, the liveliness of Parker’s designs is sure to warm your home up.

But, drapes aren’t complete without the right accessory. Holdbacks, finials, brackets, endcaps and more. It’s about finding the right accessory that will not only compliment your drapes but will also bring your vision for the room to life. Sometimes wood is the way to go, other times it is crystal or metal. As every girl knows, accessories make the outfit, or in this case, your home. After all…they are the “jewelry of your draperies.”

So, as I always say folks, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”

Best,

Robin
