Bring "Joy" in to Your Home by Decorating with Coral and Salmon

As we are in the middle of Summer I wanted to touch upon decorating with the Salmon and Coral hues. There is something about these colors and Summer that put a smile on my face. 

There seems to be many color meanings for the colors Coral and Salmon. While some take Coral to represent loyalty and creativity others say it stands for passion and desire. As for the color Salmon it signifys good health, youth, joy as well as a passion for life.

If you like the said colors take the plunge and go for a faux grasscloth in coral or paint a focal wall in Benjamin Moore's Passion Fruit. If these ideas are too bold start off with a few throw pillows to bring the color in to your space. Introducing the colors in to your current decor is a lot easier than you think.

The Silhouette Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas are a sophisticated and elegant window treatment.

The Silhouette is custom made to the size of your window. They can be ordered as wide as 12 feet and as long as 10 1/2 feet in height. A great option for a very large window!  For larger windows the option of having two on one headrail is available.

With the construction of contemporary and modern homes there is usually a window that is out of the ordinary in terms of shape. The Silhouette can be constructed in to specialty shapes such as an arch, an angle, a circle and an oval.

The construction of the Silhouette is soft fabric vanes suspended between two sheers. The Signature S-Vane™ creates ambient light and shadow giving you daytime privacy. The vanes are available in 2-4" sizes.
