One of our favorite blogs, Curbly, follows the DIY renovation adventures of Alicia, Bruno and their new family as they make a 100 year old house into a home.
We have loved following all of the renovation projects in the Curbly house, but were extra thrilled to see that they choose Blinds.com for their window makeover!
“We began looking at blinds, shades, and curtains, and started making lists of the pros and cons. We love the idea of bringing pattern and color into our neutrally-colored walls through curtains. But given the number of windows we have and their size (we have 6 windows in the living room alone), most of our walls would be covered in floor-to-ceiling drapery. Choosing a print, color-scheme, etc. felt overwhelming, so we decided to enter the world of blinds for a more subtle solution.”
In the end, Bruno and Alicia decided to go with the Bali Northern Heights 2″ Wood Blinds which gave them the modern functionality they needed, but also blended well with their historical home.
Here’s what they had to say:
“When the blinds are up, they’re so subtle you hardly notice them. In fact, initially, no one did because they fit so perfectly with the character of our house. This is exactly what we hoped for. Instead, people asked when our new windows were installed, which is probably the biggest compliment you can pay to 100-year-old windows. ”
They’re also giving away 2 $500 gift cards to Blinds.com for their readers so you can get window coverings as fabulous as theirs! Enter by January 14th – find out how to put your name in the hat here.
