National Lipstick Day & Custom Window Treatments

National Lipstick Day – July 29, 2015

If you think national lipstick day and window treatments have nothing in common… Well, we don’t blame you, but it turns out there really is no difference between beautifying your home and beautifying yourself.

What does National Lipstick Day + Custom Window Treatments Have in Common?

  • Color– When color trends emerge they aren’t confined to the runway but translate across all industries, from cosmetics to home decor.

  • Elevate a look– Every woman knows that the moment she slaps on a bold lip color her look just went from drab to fab. The same truth applies when decorating with patterned drapes in a bold color. It can be the perfect eye catching element that will turn heads.

  • Appearance– Your lipstick and your window treatments define you. Okay, well maybe that is a bit extreme. In all seriousness, people are always forming opinions based off appearance, including appearance of your home.  If you’re looking to convey a sophisticated and classy look, wear a deep red shade of lip stick or furnish your windows with sleek Roller Shades.

  • Neutrals– In interior design and really all avenues of fashion, the rule of thumb is you can’t go wrong with neutrals. From rich beige’s, to warm grays and everything in between, neutrals pair well with all colors and styles and are a staple in the cosmetic and home decor industry.

Now that there is a clear parallel between national lipstick day and window treatments, get yourself a new lip color and some 3 Day Blinds window treatments while you’re at it.

P.S. If national lipstick day is a real holiday, I think it’s time to add national window treatments day to the list!

 Favorite Patterns

Hi I’m Reina Esperanza, Merchandise Coordinator at 3 Day Blinds. Working with fabrics and patterns every day is such a great experience. It’s so easy to appreciate the beauty and allurement that each fabric can bring. How can I pick only a few of my favorites? Well with some deliberation, here they are my favorite fabrics from the 3 Day Blinds line. I hope that you enjoy them just as much as I do!

 1.       From Sea to Shining Sea… Barrier Reef | Sea Breeze 

Color Trends and Bamboo Blinds

 It’s finally the summertime! The beach is the best place to be this time of year.  Smelling like sun block as you enjoy the sand, surf, breeze and simply taking pleasure in relaxing along the shore. The coastal design helps bring that feeling home. The pattern Barrier Reef | Sea Breeze is a beautiful fabric that is both fun with the reef pattern and sophisticated with the embroidery. By adding a Roller Shade in Calceta | Driftwood, you’ll have all the elements you need to complete that beach feel.

 2.       Never to Tarnish… Eminence | Silver

Greys and Neutrals from 3 Day Blinds

Souce: Buzznet, 3 Day Blinds

Don’t limit your silver to just jewelry and kitchenware! Being easy on the eyes, grays are the neutral of the season. Grays are everywhere and offer a bit of sophistication to soften the environment. Most shades of gray are absorbent colors that change with the light, so it’s easy to match with your current decor. With an intricate pattern, Eminence | Silver adds the visual interest you need to intrigue your guests with your elegant style.  In addition, metallic colors such as copper are playing an increasingly important role in modern design. Eminence | Russet embraces the copper tone with highlights of yellow and a subtle hint of clay. Aren’t these modern metals marvelous!

3.       To Expose or Not to Expose?… Ex Marks | Snow
