Sliding doors can present a particularly difficult problem, especially in a room where you already have wood blinds on all the windows. Wood blinds over sliding glass doors are extremely difficult to raise because of the weight of the wood over the expanse of the door. A better solution is to look at woven woods in the same wood tones as the wood blinds in the room. Both products are wood-based, organic, and the resulting look is very cohesive and beautiful. HunterDouglas’ Provenance or Horizons B&W woven woods are excellent options to to resolve this dilemma.

With the stock market in turmoil and the housing market bottoming out, many homeowners are feeling the urge to “nest”. When we surround ourselves with things that give us comfort and some tranquility, the external forces don’t seem quite so bad. Ways in which we “nest” include changing the paint color of our living room, buying new throw pillows and blankets, and adding draperies to our wood blind covered windows. Fabric and texture give us a sense of security. Something we could all use a little of right now..
