Hunter Douglas is number one in product innovation within the window covering industry. We at Bretz Interiors consistently see modern ideas and applications for beautiful, multi-function window fashions. One of these multi-function window fashions is Luminette Privacy Sheers. Hunter Douglas Luminette Privacy Sheers give you the soft feel of a sheer drapery with the function of a vertical blind. The Luminette Privacy Sheers have a fabric vane with a sheer loop so they are lighter weight than your usual vertical blind and offer UV protection from the strong Colorado sun even when the vanes are open to showcase those beautiful city or mountain views.

Does winter make you want to curl up and enjoy a good book? Think about creating a cozy place in your home to read, whether you have an entire room to devote or just a small nook or bay window.
A home library is different than a home office because it’s a place for enjoyment and relaxation, while you may need to actually work in a home office. A home library is a retreat from the stresses of your life and your home. You can quietly read a book while sipping a glass of port or a warm cup of tea.
Key to a home library is a comfortable place to sit and put up your feet. And good lighting is critical. Purchase a lamp that provides enough light to read small print comfortably and position it over your shoulder.
Creating a cozy place to read in your home will give you hours of quiet pleasure while you’re improving your mind!
The other day I went to the Denver Design Center for the first time. It was, in a word… okay, I’m not sure I can really describe it in a word. It was almost like being a kid, biting into a big piece of chocolate (or vanilla or whatever is your favorite) cake for the very first time. (I’m pretty sure I used this analogy as I am, at this moment, biting into a delicious chocolate mousse cake.) It is something new and exciting for someone who is just entering the world of design.
But with all the (very) expensive items in the Design Center it got me thinking about how we often are willing to spend money on couches, dining sets, bedroom furniture etc but we often want the least expensive thing when it comes to our flooring and window coverings because it is such a large up front expense all at once. But the flooring and window coverings in your home can really pull together a complete look to your home and accentuate the self-expression we all strive to show in our homes.
With the amount of options available these days with flooring and windows, it is absurd to not think of them as being a personal statement within your home. It may not be the first thing that someone notices in your home right now, but why shouldn’t it be?
