National Lipstick Day – July 29, 2015

  • 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!
