{window treatments for the lake}

Window Treatments with a View

There’s something about a lake view that’s good for the soul. Those peaceful mornings where the water is like glass. Hearing the call of a loon or the splash of a fish. Soaking in nature’s beauty.

When you’re lucky enough to have a lake view, you want to make the most of it. But you also want to have insulation in the winter or perhaps privacy from neighbors next door. How can you balance all of these factors? Diane Larson, is a window coverings expert from Hirshfield’s Baxter, and she says there are a number of products that will work for a lake home.

Friday Finds: How to Play with Patterns in Small Spaces

It might seem counterintuitive—but if you have a small space, pattern can actually make it come alive and seem bigger, not smaller and cluttered as you might expect. Using patterns in small spaces can offer you a chance to show your personality and take risks. Since it’s a small space, it’s less of an investment in time and materials.

Let’s take a look at how you can play with patterns in small spaces to add pizzazz to your home.

  • Incorporate wall coverings.

Today’s wall coverings are nothing like the wallpaper from back in the day. New versions are like pieces of art with amazing colors and design. You can use wall coverings with bold patterns on an accent wall to give a small space an artistic feel or unexpected feel of luxury.

{window treatment wednesday: sheer summer}

The perfect sheer window treatments for summer.

I am crazy excited for summer to get here. Like Olaf, the snowman from the movie Frozen, I dream about summer, hot sand and “getting gorgeously tanned.” I want to embrace every sunny day and be outside as much as possible. I think that’s one reason sheers are a popular Midwest window coverings choice—they let the sun in.

{interior design trends: florals}

Designer Guild floral wallpaper

Jen Ziemer in Midwest Home Magazine

On this dreary first of May I think some floral inspiration is needed to brighten the day. Florals started gathering momentum last year and continue to grow in popularity. This season’s floral trend is bright, big and bold! With that said, I’m just starting to see more traditional patterns like chintz and toilés appearing in magazines and on Pinterest. The floral frenzy has begun. Read the rest of this entry »

According to the calendar spring is here. Hard to tell with all the snow still on the ground, but the 2014 Bachman’s Spring Ideas House can give you a much-needed color fix. “Aegean Oasis” will provide the antidote to Minnesota’s long winter by allowing visitors to bask in the sophisticated blues, greens, and diverse patterns of an overseas retreat.

Bedroom ideas for the baseball fan.

Today we’re thinking about diamonds—but not the precious gems. We’re discussing baseball diamonds as the season’s opening day approaches. If you have a baseball fan in your house, here are some ways you can reflect their love for the sport in your home.

Décor

This room uses a bold paint choice for the bunk beds and baseball themed linens to carry out its theme. The sheets, pillowcases and accent pillows add a touch of the sport without being overwhelming. The bats and balls by the window are a nice touch—you can easily imagine the kids who live here grabbing them and running outside to play catch.
