I know it’s Monday, but I’m feeling festive. Whether you’ll
be drinking green beer or decorating shamrock cookies with your kids on St.
Patrick’s Day, it’s a great day to spend some time catching up with friends and family. It’s
also a great day to start thinking about your Spring décor. It’s almost April,
and before you know it, the sun will be beating down on you and your furniture.
Make sure to cover your windows and reduce your need for air conditioning. Green
blinds are a perfect way to honor St. Patty, but they’re also very in style in
2009. By utilizing a wide range of colors on your windows, you’ll be right in
line with the window treatment trends of 2009. Don’t be afraid of a little
color. Express your creativity this year, and branch out.
I’m a sucker for green; it’s been my favorite color since I knew what
color was. Maybe that’s why I enjoy these window treatment so much.
Green is the color of rebirth, it’s the color of nature, and it’s a restful, restorative color. Use it with abundance in your home to make you feel energized and safe. Below are some beautiful examples to model your home after:
Overlap puddling, patterned draperies with neutral fauxwood blinds. I also really like the sisal rug. Sisal and sea grass are great neutrals; they’ll add texture to your room without adding any color.
The scalloped edges on these Bali roller shades are a dainty touch to this little girl’s room. The limey green shade and turquoise wall are pulled together by the colors in the bedspread.
This very cool, modern kitchen are enhanced by these green, patterned cellular shades. Check out the great detail in the shade. The color? Rosemary (you can see why):
Cellular shades are great for blocking light, increasing insulation, and for odd-shaped windows, like arches. The Bisque Green shades add life to the neutrals in the room.
If you’d rather go with white or neutral window treatments, paint the walls green instead!
