3 Day Blinds v. Kim Kardashian

3 Day Blinds Soft Roman Shades

Who wore it better?

Celebrity Kim Kardashian is considered one the leading fashion icons in the industry but 3 Day Blinds Soft Roman Shade in Addison Verdant fabric certainly gives her a run for her money when it comes to floral prints.

Eye catching | Soft Roman Shade

While although Kim’s gown is definitely eye catching, it is catching all the wrong attention.  The winner of this category is 3 Day Blinds Soft Roman Shade because it’s turning heads in the right direction. Sophisticated yet, elegant this Soft Roman Shade makes a dramatic statement in both pattern and style.

Versatile  | Soft Roman Shade

Kim also falls short of the Soft Roman Shade in the category of versatility. This gown probably shouldn’t be worn in the current floral print let alone any other pattern or color. The Soft Roman Shade looks exquisite in any room and comes in 5 different shade styles and over 160 fabrics exclusive from 3 Day Blinds. Now that is variety!

Fit | Soft Roman Shade

I’m not convinced that Kim’s dress is the best fit for a woman as far along in her pregnancy as she is. You know that saying, “it fits like a glove”? This dress takes that saying to an extreme, not to mention it certainly cannot be comfortable! On the other hand, the Soft Roman Shade will fit in any window perfectly. Because 3 Day Blinds brings the showroom to you, and handles everything- from measurement to the installation, you know your Soft Roman Shades will be a custom fit.

A valiant effort from Kim Kardashain but 3 Day Blinds Soft Roman Shade exceeds her gown in all areas of expertise.

Cool Home Design Ideas

Cool Home Design Ideas

With so many cool home design options out there, it can be difficult to decide how to decorate your space to make it your own. Your home is your refuge. It should be functional, comfortable, and reflect your personal style.

Possible sources of design theme inspiration include favorite historical time periods, your best-loved hobbies, cultures you’re interested in, or your favorite vacation spots. With some careful consideration, you can create a place that you’ll be happy to call home.

Time Capsules

History is rich with design inspiration. If you’re enamored with the opulence and warmth of the Victorian Era style, you’re not alone. This popular design style employs deep reds, rich greens, and golds, patterns inspired by nature and ornate, often sturdily crafted furniture, generally made of dark woods. Window treatments from this era were usually of the “soft” variety, such as sheer curtains in rooms where natural light was desired, and luxurious drapery panels in areas where privacy and a more stately look was desired.

If you’re taking a slightly newer page from the history book, you can draw inspiration from retro styles from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Homes decorated in this style typically use lots of earthy base colors, accented by citrus tones, and deep purple and electric blues.

Retro-futuristic designs, in the vein of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic design language pair well with this look, as do Vertical Blinds and Mini Blinds in bold colors.

Vacation at Home

After arriving back home from a great vacation, it can be difficult to return to the daily grind. Fortunately, you can keep a little bit of that adventurous spirit with you by bringing it into your interior design.

Mix Woven Wood Shades with bold animal prints, subtle browns, grays, and whites, and classic furniture in complementary colors to add an exotic African feel to your living room.

Patterned ceramic tiles; rustic, textured walls; and bright, but natural colors can all be put together to create a festive Latin American theme. For window treatments, opt for bright, color-coordinated curtains, or Wood Horizontal Blinds with complementary accent tapes.

Follow Your Muse

Maybe you’re a retail manager by day, and a rock star by night. Or perhaps you’re a web designer with a burning passion for developing your own photos. Most of us have an artistic side, and it can be a great source of inspiration when designing your home.

Perhaps your home office needs a little more rock ’n’ roll. Checkerboard floors, framed posters of classic album covers, and a red Stratocaster guitar mounted proudly on the wall are all good places to start. Add some wide-slat metallic Mini Blinds, and you’re ready to rock.

Those photos you have stashed away in your attic or basement deserve to be seen. Frame your black and white photographs in clean, contemporary frames and create a modern, minimal space that embraces gray scale. The striking lines and visual repetition of Vertical Blinds might be just the thing to really make it work.

Summer Entertaining Appetizers

In my many years of entertaining I was completely in the dark when it came to the anatomy of a cheese plate. Typically my approach when creating a cheese plate was- make it look pretty… I it never occurred to me that there was a science behind the presentation of the food but turns out this makes a lot of sense. These appetizers are perfectly complementary to one another in both taste and texture. Organization of these items is key too; you don’t want guests reaching across one another for bread that is on the opposite side of the cheese wheel.

There are so many appealing elements in this kitchen it’s almost impossible to pick just a few.

To start off, there is nothing more attractive then a white kitchen. This space looks so clean, bright, and cheery. On the other hand, what makes this kitchen feel warm and inviting is the rich cedar flooring. Pairing a white and cedar gives this room a wonderful balance and is truly eye catching.

The next element of this room that is particularly desired in any kitchen is, that is multifunctional- both a kitchen and dining area.  In a shared room like this, many people struggle deciding how much space to designate to a dining area and how much should be for the kitchen. This kitchen designates about 70% to the kitchen and 30% to the dining area. You know what that means, cooking heaven. There is so much counter space in this kitchen and yet the dining area doesn’t feel crammed.

Last but certainly not least, what really polishes off this rooms look are the bay windows. For some people this style of windows are too traditional. To update this look I would add woven wood shades- cape cod whitewash. That way the natural sunlight can still stream in but the room appears to have a more polished and finished look.
