The Jewels in the Paris Texas Crown

 

 

Continental Window Fashions is a leading online retailer of drapery hardware, curtain rods, and decorative window films. The company has become the place to go for aspiring home decorators looking to make their dreams come true when dressing their windows. Continental Window Fashions is pleased to announce that Paris Texas Hardware is pushing the limits of drapery accents with innovative and elegant hardware collections. Paris Texas Hardware lets the home designer mix and match elements to create the look preferred in any space.
With sophisticated finial carvings and stunning gold tones, shades of white and more, the Somerset Collection brings a new edge to traditional drapery accents allowing the decorator to create a classically elegant space. Located just outside Orlando, Florida in Oviedo, Continental Window Fashions ships throughout the United States and worldwide offering products from popular companies like Kirsch, Graber, Paris Texas, Ona, House Parts and LJB.

 

The Somerset Collection is an awe-inspiring collection inspired by the architectural elements found centuries ago in the gardens of aristocratic England. Imagine how Somerset will fill the window niches of any home with design inspiration taken from classic urns, benches and statuary. Gilded in the golden tones of the Renaissance, this collection radiates an Old World elegance adding warmth and character to modern-day interiors. Fastidiously hand-crafted and finished, every finial, bracket and hold-back is a piece of art and the elegant finishes that adorn this collection are truly beyond compare.

 

The other jewel in the Paris Texas crown, the Villiers Collection is already setting the industry on fire. In beautiful colors, the dozens of finials and brackets make the possibilities endless. The collection uses a mix of metal, resin, and wood materials, as well as both 1″ and 2″ pole sizes giving one the ability to become a window fashion professional. Villiers also features that are hard to find such as the double bracket. Use the double bracket to create the up to the minute after dual layered look.

 

The addition of the Paris Texas collections is setting Continental Window Fashions at a distance from other retailers. Their unique collections and the ability to manufacture them at lower costs enable the home designer to dress windows without breaking the bank. CEO, David Wright, who came to Continental Window Fashions in 2003, says that “We have brought together several industry professionals whose number one goal is to make sure you get the right product in the quickest way possible. We not only want to have competitive pricing, we also want to focus on 100% customer satisfaction. That not only includes service during the sale, but service after the sale as well.” It seems to be working, because Continental Window Fashions’ customers are returning again and again to purchase their drapery hardware and products.

The View from Your Window

 

 

Curtains play many roles in the home. Not only do they decorate and help insulate a room, they also provide a sense of security and comfort. Do your windows face the street or look into your neighbor’s house? There are two options for those rooms in which visibility is an issue. Choose heavy materials, finer weaves or darker colors, or perhaps a double layer of curtain and blinds. Blinds are no longer the ugly stepsister of the window world. Today, there are incredible choices in every color of the rainbow.

Curtains that open without a fuss are a necessity. People who have a wonderful view from their kitchen window find this especially true. Choose curtains that are functional as well as pretty. Drapes with a pull are an option, but it’s perfectly okay to choose curtains that simply slide on the rod, as long as the rod is reachable.

When you’re deciding whether to choose a dark or light color, remember that the decision will impact the entire room. Darker colors will limit the light in your rooms, great if someone works late hours and tends to sleep during the day. However, if you’re looking to lighten up a room, choose lighter colors for your curtains. The pale colors will tend to let sunlight filter through, even if the curtains are so heavy that you can’t see through them.

Whichever style of drapery you decide to go with, the next step is the hardware. Traditional or contemporary, wood, iron or metal? Decorative drapery hardware from Robert Allen should be your first choice when selecting high end drapery hardware. Robert Allen offers decorative and beautiful drapery hardware in many different styles. If its modern drapery hardware you’re looking for, see the Al Fresco Collection, or if it’s something more traditional we recommend the Bedpost Collection.

Continental Window Fashions is proud to offer the Robert Allen collection. With free shipping orders of $100 or more and 9am – 5pm customer support, Monday – Friday, Continental Widow Fashions strives to make your ordering experience as simple as possible.

C: Protection! A pad is going to prevent dye transfer, marring, staining, and scratching to the floor or carpeting beneath, and as an add bonus, it will provide cushion-y  softness.

Jade Industries rug pads are specific to the type of flooring underneath and they are made with 100% natural open cell sponge rubber. Jade’s pads provide unsurpassed protection against rug wear. Our rug pads will not deteriorate or mildew.

Beaded Curtains – Creating a Magical Vibe

 

 

Strands of colored beads can be used to soften a stark window rather than to provide warmth or protect privacy. Adding beads to your window automatically creates an avaunt-guard  vibe to your room. Graber 3/4 Inch Tradition Cafe Rods are perfect for this project. Since 1939 Graber has been a leader in the drapery hardware and curtain rod business. They make quality hardware at competitive prices.

 
DIY beaded curtains will give a traditional lace covered window a modern, fanciful look. What better place to drift off to sleep than in a dreamy ethereal bedroom with the moonlight creating prisms of jewel toned colors across your bed?
Extend the glassy theme onto a windowsill arrangement with decorative glasses and bottles. The rainbow of colors in the glass beads has a definite magical feel and will transform an otherwise plain and stark window into something more ethereal.

 

Creating your beaded curtains is easier than you think. Follow these easy steps and transform your space into the place of your dreams.
*Shop for beads of different sizes and shapes, as well as clear beading string or fishing line.

 
* Measure the length of the window to determine the length of your string.

 
*String beads using a combination of larger and smaller beads and tie off the opposite end when finished.

 
*Repeat the process with different pieces of string and attach to the curtain rod.

 
*Measure 2 inches above the window on the left corner and mark the location with a pencil. Measure 2 inches up from the right corner and mark the location on the wall.

 
*Holding the beaded curtain rod above the widow, center it so it overhangs evenly on each side of the frame. Line the rod up so the top of the rod sits on the pencil marks.

 
*Mark the mounting holes on the rod.

 
*Drill a starter hole in each of the marked hanger holes.

 
*Screw the brackets into the starter holes. Adjust them until their bases sit flush to the wall and the hook opening is facing upward. Slide the curtain rod over the hooks to hang it.

 
*Sit back and surround yourself with swirling  bits of color.

Stark, Elegant Style with Bamboo Curtain Rods

 

 

Bamboo is one of the most Eco-friendly building materials there is—it’s sturdy and solid, yet it grows extremely fast and is therefore rapidly renewable. It has a stark, elegant look that will likely blend into the decor of your home. Menagerie Bamboo Curtain Rods and Drapery Hardware is a bamboo drapery hardware collection offering many styles to coordinate with your individual needs. Please note that all of the bamboo poles are independently created by Mother Nature. No two poles are identical. The organic pits, discolorations, and pole “curves” are natural enhancements to the bamboo designs, and are not considered defects. All Menagerie Bamboo Drapery Hardware accessories are cast in resin and stained to match the real bamboo curtain rods.
Bring the island flavor of bamboo to your home or beach house with Menagerie bamboo drapery rods and accessories including bamboo curtain rings, curtain rods and brackets. Menagerie has a 2″ bamboo drapery hardware collection offering many styles for you to integrate into your home.
Curtain rods are a great place to integrate this wood into your home. Bamboo curtain rods come in a variety of colors and are visually lighter than most wood and iron rods creating a laid-back appeal that’s perfect not only for a coastal home but for any room where you’re craving an injection of seaside style. Pair a bamboo rod with a set of light sheers. The color and weight of the rod keeps the sheers from feeling like they’re floating away, while at the same time the sheer fabric makes the rods seem less heavy. One of the best things about bamboo is that it naturally compliments a pattern. Geometric prints or bold prints work well with bamboo because the simplicity of rods doesn’t allow it to compete.
As a high end designer drapery hardware system, Menagerie Bamboo is completely customizable for your taste and décor. The Bamboo Collection offers versatility for a contemporary and tropical décor. Menagerie bamboo drapery hardware items are in stock and usually ship in about 2 business days direct from the manufacturer.
Continental Window Fashions will give your home beauty and elegance and a chance to make your design dreams come true.
