Custom Draperies Back on the Rise

Everyone seems to be simplifying their window treatments but sometimes a blind alone doesn't give you the finished look you were hoping for. If you opt to add the warmth of draperies, don't feel you are locked into traditional pinch pleated panels. Fun options can be customized to fit your individual style.

Try the casual cuff drapery or the flip panel that allows you to use two different fabrics. For the more traditional home, adding fabric covered buttons is very stylish and always adds a touch of class to any drapery panel.

You no longer have to worry about putting flooring in those rooms with moisture such as your bathroom, basement or laundry room. The Resilient Flooring is 100% waterproof! The Resilient Flooring is available in vinyl tile and planks. The designs are visually shocking in the sense of how real they look. From wood to stone to tile, they look like the real thing. This is what makes the Resilient Flooring such a great product, it is very affordable with a high end look!

It is also very easy to install for those handyman DIY's. It can be installed either diagonally or in a brick pattern layout. Another great feature of the flooring is it can be in installed over an existing floor such as ceramic tile or vinyl flooring.

Benjamin Moore 2016 Paint Colors

It's all very exciting when each Fall Benjamin Moore announces their paint color selection for the up coming year. While some people love their choices and some do not, Benjamin Moore always puts a lot of effort in to selecting just the right colors.

Simply White OC-117 is their 2016 Color of the Year. Many were shocked at this choice. Accompanied with Simply White are 4 other whites while the remaining palette includes pastels and brights. It took me a few weeks to digest these colors since they are "all over the place" BUT they have grown on me and I really like them. I particularly like the addition of more whites. When putting together my most recent wallpaper and paint display it was quite easy to pull one of the whites to coordinate with the wallpaper. Also a lot of customers ask for a white alternative for their ceiling that isn't the bright white ceiling paint is.

All of the colors are available in pint sized samples for easy color testing.
