So long to plain jane windows

Draperies/Curtains can be created in a vast array of styles, shapes, patterns, textures & prints. I love how draperies give a finishing touch to pulling an entire room together. I will continually update this section, that is, when I remember to take pictures.
Far left Window Treatment flat roman shade.
Far right window... long drapery panels with a relaxed
topper in matching fabric. Window seat matches drapery panels & pillows were created combining all fabrics.

Matching flat roman shades flank the fireplace creating symmetry at the focal point of the room.

Fan tabbed topper is adorable in this striped silk attached to a 1" exposed rod. Simple but very eye catching against the seafoam green walls.

Caboose to Color Center

The Grand Opening of Aucutts Paint Store in Portales, NM.

RED: The color of vibrancy, energy, excitement. Although the placement of the caboose is set back from the street with buildings on either side, one can't miss the caboose when you drive by. Aucutts pe
rsonnel offer personal, friendly, and immediate customer service! They are excellent at matching stain colors.

Although the background is a soft white, the
neutrality of the walls makes all the antiques, collectables, and features of the caboose stand out. Color palettes are displayed in several of the cubbies.

Ladders aren't just for painting! Use them for shelves, display areas, magazine racks..
..endless opportunities.
The older, more rugged, the more personality it adds to your treasures.

I'm still learning about this program, so one of my pictures isn't showing up. But there's a cozy spot for the customers to lay out all their samples, drink a cup of coffee, and take their time to make all their color choices.

What a fun Grand OPening. Joan Hultman gave demonstrations on wall textures, faux finishes, and color techniques.
