The Right Rug in the Right Place

 

Your home needs to be a place where you can feel, comfortable and secure. And what can help us do that better than a quick, face-lift in our favorite rooms? When you walk into your family room and your eye sees only the stain in the carpet, or the damaged wall, stop. It will probably cost too much to repaint the room or replace the carpet, but you can lay down a lovely area rug.

 

Adding an area rug in to a room will complete your décor by adding color and anchoring the furniture. How the area rug is placed in a room will make the room look well decorated or can backfire terribly, leaving a mismatched mess.  As each room is decorate be sure to  lay the rug so that it shows the design and blends well with the furniture.

High quality rugs from MOMENI, Milliken and rug pads by JADE are offered at Continental Window Fashions. Each collection offers many different accent rug styles, shapes and colors to fit your decor. Whether your home needs contemporary rugs, traditional rugs, or children’s rugs they have a decorative rug that will fit in perfectly.
The MOMENI Collections satisfies anyone’s design palette, and   never sacrifices style for quality. The MOMENI rugs can be found in modern, trendy, contemporary, or  geometric shapes and designs and in  vintage, or classic Mediterranean styles and come in  a variety of eco-friendly materials. Many of their area rugs are considered “green” or “eco-friendly” so your home will look stylish and Earth friendly at the same time!
The Milliken Collection includes the Lake District Collection which is full of rich earth tones. The My Team Collection is perfect for a boy’s room or teenager’s dorm, showing his college or NFL team spirit. My Team rugs come in indoor and outdoor options and almost all of these area rugs wear the STAINMASTER® stamp of approval.

Made of durable earth friendly materials, the jute carpet pads and mats keep area rugs in place while providing a buffer between the rug and floor.

 

After deciding on the rug a little thought is necessary to the actual placement. Lay area rugs in a bedroom at the foot and sides of the bed. In large bedrooms, place the rugs between pieces of furniture to cover empty floor space. Try laying a rug between the bed and dresser, or in front of a closet or wardrobe, then add a chair to an empty corner to anchor it.

 

In the dining room, area rugs can be centered directly under the dining table. Be sure to use a rug large enough to cover the floor space below the chairs even when they are pulled out from the table. A properly sized rug will prevent chairs from scraping and damaging the floor.In small living rooms, lay an area rug so it covers  the space between the furniture, leaving  about six inches to slide  under the front legs of each piece of furniture. This will make the room look full and appropriately decorated.

 

A rug in the right place can be the finishing touch to every room.They are  tremendously versatile. With the appropriate pad, an  area rug will  work on any type of flooring and in any room with magical results. An area rug offers unlimited combinations of color, texture, pattern and placement. It is  the only flooring product that you can easily install, then pick up and take with you!

 

Living Small But Creatively

 

Living small forces you to live creatively. If you live, sleep, study and spend time with friends all in one place, with so much going on, it can get messy and mixed up quickly. What you need is a simple system that keeps your different zones separated — an extra wall or two to mark each space within your place. Vesta Hardware is the answer. Most Vesta hardware items are imported from overseas bringing the modern European drapery look here to the United States. Vesta offers a vast array of modern drapery hardware products including the Techno Track Collection, high end traverse drapery rod system.

Hanging curtains around the bed in a studio apartment partitions off the sleeping area with a soft flow of fabric that separates the bed from the other living areas without the bulk and inflexibility of dividers, screens and other hard barriers.

For today’s project you will need:

Curtain Track System

Drill

Plaster/ceiling anchor

awl

Curtains

Measure the length of the ceiling area on which you want to run your curtains, using a measuring tape. Draw a faint line representing this area with a pencil.
Hold the track pieces up to the ceiling along the path you’ve marked. Make marks onto the wall, through the screw holes in the tracks.

Poke small holes into the ceiling with your awl where you made your screw marks. Hold your hardware pieces back up, lined up against the holes. Drill your threaded drywall anchors into the small holes, attaching the tracks to the ceiling.
Insert the hooks included in your track kit onto the tracks, according to package instructions.

When considering the number of curtain panels to buy, think about tripling the width. This trick provides an abundance of gathers to make a translucent curtain more private, or a heavier curtain more sumptuous. The less gathers there are, the more see-through a translucent curtain appears.

Done!  Privacy, creativity, and splendor all in one afternoon.
A few things to consider:

**Make sure you aren’t leaving even the smallest space between track pieces: the closer together the pieces are the smoother the curtains will open and close.
**You will probably need two people to finish the job. Invite a friend, celebrate afterward.
**Once the track is in place, hang the curtains at regular, even intervals.

Drapery Hardware Isn’t Just for Windows Anymore.

 

There are times when you may want to use curtains to provide a separate space in your home, as opposed to limiting their use to windows. A closet without an attractive door, no closet at all, except a clothes rack for instance. Curtains can be used to camouflage these areas. For these instances choose a thick curtain that cannot be seen through. Curtains with linings or that are made of a thick material such as velvet is just right for this purpose. You will also want drapery hardware that not only does the job, but adds to the beauty of your project. Urban Dwellings will fit the bill. Artistic, uncomplicated, and refreshingly urban minded in style and design your options are limitless.

Perhaps you live in a tiny apartment or dorm room and would like to separate your sleeping area from your living area. How about a bed cave? Suspend poles from the ceiling, and hang the curtains. Make it even more attractive with tie backs, so that the curtains can be opened providing a beautiful decorative effect. Choose a heavy curtain for this purpose too; making sure the curtain is attractive on both sides since you will be able to see it from either side. Try hanging double panels so that the decorative side is facing out on both sides of your curtain divider.

Remember, Urban Dwellings is the place to go when fulfilling your designer needs. Kiln dried sustainable wood products are hand finished with lead free paints. Imagine these refreshingly urban minded designs in your home. Choose your poles, rings, bracket and coordinating finials in a color and diameter to suit your needs.

Decorating My Kid’s Rooms – From the Nursery to the College Dorm

Curtain Rods and Drapery HardwareThe rooms of your children will likely deviate from the central theme of your home. As children begin to grow up, they want to impose their own tastes upon their living spaces. Wise parents understand the child’s need to have some control over his or her environment and will accommodate it when possible. One of the quickest and easiest decorating changes you can make involves your window treatments, including the fabrics, drapery hardware and curtain rods.

The Room Grows Up

As your child grows up, his or her room will also need to mature. For this reason, choose a window treatment style that will change with minimal work. Simple sheers over blinds with a flowing scarf may appeal to teenage girls, while younger children love the puffy, balloon-like look of a stuffed valance. For boys of all ages, you will probably want to keep it simple with clean lines and a minimum of fuss.

Planning ahead can help you make the room “grow up” along with your child. You can make decorating miracles happen with just fabric and hardware while keeping the walls neutral; this strategy will help you tailor your child’s room to his age and personality at each step of the way

It Doesn’t End at the WindowNotre Dame Bedding - Continental Window Fashions

Continental also offers an exclusive line of bedding from Sports Coverage, Inc. What better way to decorate your college student’s dorm than sporting the colors from their institution of choice. From Notre Dame Golds, to Michigan Big Blue, your son or daughter will accent their room with the colors that define the history of some of the country’s proudest colleges.

Or if you prefer, Continental Windows also boasts Major League Baseball Bedding and NFL bedding, so your baseball or football fan can show off their favorite teams.

Window Treatments for All Ages

Many decorators fail to consider the windows of a room as a major part of the overall scheme. Simply tossing on some mini-blinds or even a set of curtains simply isn’t enough to pull the room together as a complete package. You should consider the size and number of windows relative to the size of the room, and make sure that your windows aren’t overpowering the rest of the decor. If the window of a room isn’t the intended focal point, make sure not to force that appearance with your window treatments.

For the smallest of children, safety will be your primary concern. Make sure you place your baby’s crib or bassinet well away from any windows. Your child should not be able to reach the fabric or cords of any blinds or drapes. Older children may want to have some input on the types of window treatments that you use. If so, be sure to consider their desires when picking out the fabric, curtain rods and drapery hardware.
