Luxury

“Like so much else in life, luxury is relative. When it comes to interior design, the concept is often invoked, but its meaning can take many forms.” These words for ELLEDECOR Magazine’s “Luxury Survey” have made us reflect on what luxury means to us. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner there is no better time to delve into the concept of luxury.

Probably most homeowners would agree with ELLEDECOR’s findings that 68% of respondents said “quality beats everything else in determining what constitutes true luxury.” However, that begs the question: What is quality?

Is quality using high-end materials? Great craftsmanship? Is it exclusivity or brand recognition? Obviously these things play a role in quality but for quality to truly lend itself to luxury we argue there is an additional element. True luxury is a feeling. It is personal and should make you feel special! So, luxurious touches might be a certain fabric that transforms when upholstered onto your great-grandmothers chair or turns a plain window into something extraordinary with window treatments. It might be the addition of badly needed accessories or a lush rug that defines your space and pulls a room together. When these things make you feel something special we have taken quality and turned it into luxury!

It is always good to hear from our customers

We received this testimonial via US Mail the other day, love it, and want to share it. Thank you Jim and Linda Weghorst.

Dear Claudia,

I would like to take this time and thank you for such a wonderful job you did on my window treatments.Testimonial I ABSOLUTELY  love them and they look fantastic. I knew that it would finish off the room and it definitely did. What a transformation it made.

I also want to thank you for your time and efforts. Being an “out of town” customer can be a difficult task. You were so comfortable to work with and having the material swatches sent to my home in Cincinnati was great! You helped make the decisions easy.

It was also great that you made it possible to install the treatments during our next trip to Naples. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the beautiful windows for the entire time we were there. Thank you.

I can’t thank you enough for everything you did. Jim and I both think you did us very well.

Fondly,
Jim and Linda Weghorst

We work hard to try to make everyone’s experience that of Jim and Linda’s.

 

Practical and Beautiful Window Treatments for the Florida Sun

With the bright sunshine and hot temperatures of our climate here in Naples, Florida, a well-designed window treatment is essential not only for creating a beautiful living space, but for practical reasons as well.

Window Fashions - Practical and Beautiful

Privacy, energy efficiency, light control and UV protection for your furnishings are all important considerations for a properly designed window treatment. Of course it has to look great too!

The quality and amount of light can affect the entire feel and mood of a room, and bring out the colors of your furnishings.  At the same time, selecting the right window fashions will help you achieve exactly the degree of privacy you’re looking for, from any exposure, any time of day.

In Naples, especially in the summer, we need to use our window fashions to harness solar energy in a way that lets in the right amount of light, while keeping the heat under control.

One of my favorite recent developments in window fashions is part blind/part shade/part sheer drapery, providing the best qualities of all three. Two pieces of sheer fabric are used with fabric vanes that can be adjusted to provide the exact amount of filtered light and privacy desired. When pulled up, the entire shade is hidden by a color-coordinated headrail.  A variety of colors are available for both vanes and sheer fabrics, which are easily cleaned with soap and water.  The ultimate in beauty and practicality!
