With 3 Day Blinds Floral Print – The Flowers Can Match The Drapes!

We’ve all heard the saying “April showers bring May flowers,” this got us thinking. What makes floral print have so much staying power in both fashion and design? Regardless of how you feel about floral print it’s hard to deny that floral print has been around for ages and it doesn’t look like its uprooting (get it?) any time soon.

3 Day Blinds has a great selection of floral print fabrics in a variety of colors, but enough about that, today’s fun comes in trying to match the flowers in the fabrics to flowers in real life.

Purple

How did we do?

So this one was a little tough. There are so many pieces to this fabric and we tried to go for matching the branches rather than matching the exact flowers themselves. We found some purple bells and decided that was close enough. What do you think?

Blue

Ok so maybe we’re way off with this one…

Even though we know for sure there are no hydrangeas in the above fabric (addison delfit) we love hydrangeas. A lot of other flower enthusiasts do too so how could we pass up the opportunity to bring some cool color into the blog.

Red

Again…we’re pretty off, but these were just too pretty to pass up

While this might not feel like an exact match the look and feel definitely compliment one another. When choosing fabrics for your window treatments you don’t necessarily have to have the exact flower in your garden to the window treatment you are looking to design with. Get a pattern that matches the look at feel of your garden and you’ll be smiling for years to come!

Orange

Finally…a decent match

This orange chrysanthemum screamed at us to pick it when we matched it to our giverny goldenrod pattern. The resemblance is uncanny.

Window Treatments as Pretty As A Peach

With May just starting it’s time to get ready for Peach season. Peaches are delicious and are so versatile in how you can use them. Whether you are making a light summer lunch with a peach tartine or you want a wonderful dessert like a peach tart tatin they have many uses.

The color peach works much the same way. The way you design in peach can help inspire appetite and can make people feel more comfortable. It’s no wonder so many restaurants use on their interior design.

Psychologists have found that in addition to increasing appetite, peach also increases peoples willingness to speak and have a conversation.

These fabrics can help you feel peachy keen in whatever room you decide

It is also said that peach and other shades of orange help in accepting new ideas and processing information.

Even though Kermit agrees he knows we’re right ;)
