This month, I'm excited to share some of my favorite options for custom window treatments and home decor. From the flexibility and safety of Top Down Bottom Up (TDBU) shades to the dreamy atmosphere and privacy of sheers, and the design versatility of shower curtains, we truly have a little something for everyone! 

Unlocking the Versatility of Top Down Bottom Up (TDBU) Shades 

Let me start by introducing you to the world of Top Down Bottom Up (TDBU) shades.TDBU shades offer a practical twist to your living space. So, what is so incredible about TDBU shades, you ask? Well, flexibility, safety, and a touch of modern convenience for starters, making them an ideal option for households with kids or pets. 

Cordless Comfort for Safety 

TDBU shades help keep things safe and simple. In a world with a focus on childproofing and pet safety, these shades come to the rescue. How? By doing away with those pesky cords that can be a source of fascination for little ones or curious furballs.  

Having cords hanging down can look a little messy and they create safety concerns for kids and our four-legged friends alike. All of theTDBU shades we sell are cordless offering a much cleaner look and safety certified best for kids, so you can have peace of mind, and a sleek, cord-free window treatment that complements your décor. Not all of the TDBU are cordless (yet). But it is the recommended operation for the safety and cleaner look.

And it is worth sharing that all of our shades are safety certified best for kids.  

Motorized Convenience 

Got windows in tricky places like up high or near wet spots, like over the tub or sink? Some TDBU can be equipped with a motorized system. With the push of a button, you can effortlessly adjust them, even if you can't quite reach the window. Modern luxury meets convenience, making these shades perfect for those out-of-reach windows. 

Versatile Solution for Privacy 

But that's not all. TDBU shades are the masters of privacy. Whether you're trying to keep the world outside at bay or just want to play with the light, these shades let you fine-tune your privacy. You can let sunshine pour in from the top while keeping the bottom part shaded or do it the other way around. Your privacy, your way. 

In a nutshell, Top Down Bottom Up shades are all about safety, convenience, and privacy, rolled into one. The cordless options are a dream for households with kids and pets, while the motorized choices bring modern luxury to hard-to-reach windows. And the bonus? They let you play with your privacy without skimping on style. TDBU shades are like the superhero of window treatments – the perfect blend of looks and brains. So, why not think about them for your next custom window treatment project? 

Sheers: A Delicate Dance of Light and Privacy  

Sheers stand out for their unique ability to invite natural light, provide privacy, and infuse a dreamy atmosphere into your interior. Let’s take a look at how they do this.  

Light as a Feather Fabrics: 

Sheer window treatments are all about that lightweight and airy vibe. They're often made from fabrics like voile, and other sheers. There are so many beautiful selections these days that it
makes them a popular choice. The thing about these fabrics is that they're as light as a cloud and kinda see-through. So, they're perfect when you want just a hint of sunlight and warmth and a smidge of privacy.

But did you know – sheers aren't just for your windows. They soften the hard edges of your space and make it feel cozy, and can also be used for bed hangings, canopies, or even as table covers to keep that delicate style running throughout your home. 

Layering for All-Day Versatility: 

Sheers also work well with other treatment options, especially blackout drapes. By pairing sheers with blackout drapes you have the option to pull those drapes closed for total darkness, perfect for a deep sleep or an afternoon nap. And if you are looking for a little more light during the day, open the drapes and let the light in. The sheers will filter the sunlight to give you a soft glow. It's like having your own dimmer switch for the world outside. 

Sheers with a Twist – Stationary Side Panels: 

You can also try pairing functional sheers with stationary side panels. It’s a way to keep the functionality of sheers while adding a punch of color to your décor.  

Elevate Your Bathroom with Custom Shower Curtains 

Your bathroom is more than just a functional space; it's an extension of your home's style. So, when it comes to dressing up this often-overlooked corner, custom shower curtains are your go-to solution. 

Tailored to Your Theme: 

One of the perks of custom shower curtains is that they can seamlessly align with your room's theme. Whether your bathroom follows a specific color scheme, style, or mood, these curtains can be designed to complement and elevate the entire space. 

The Perfect Fit: 

Our custom shower curtains come in longer lengths, which means no more dealing with curtains that are too short and leave your bathroom feeling incomplete. I also understand that not all showers are standard-sized. That's why I offer the option to custom fit them for odd-sized showers, ensuring a precise and polished look. 

Coordinated Elegance: 

Create a cohesive look and feel to your bathroom by pairing a custom shower curtain with your valances – on the shower and windows alike!  This ties together your bathroom's decor together seamlessly. 

Your home is a canvas for your personal style, and these options are just the beginning.  

I love designing custom creations, and I’m here to bring your vision to life. If you're feeling inspired or have a project in mind, don't hesitate to contact me. I am excited to hear about your ideas, answer your questions, and provide guidance to make your dream space a reality.
