Best of the Best: Kemble Interiors

I think the first image I saw of Kemble Interiors' work was in Veranda years ago. I know the work is widely published, and I hope you're not sick of it yet - I know I'm not.

I really like Celerie Kemble's approach to design:  "In life as in design, it is not perfection you should be after. There's beauty in the faded and worn, the well loved, and the sentimental...After all, life has seams. Your home should be like a loosely woven fabric of desires, memories, practical, notions, and even compromises."

Karim Rashid Gives Velux a Blinding Makeover

I recently had the pleasure of speaking to a woman at VeluxBlindsDirect.  Their blinds are amazing. I haven't been in the market for blinds in a while, but on my very long "to do" list is to replace the shades in my kids' rooms with blackout blinds. 






























I am so excited that Velux Blinds contacted me, because I honestly did not know about these patterned options.  Of course they also sell high quality blinds in plain colors, blackout, roller, electronic, and all of the other 'normal' styles, but these colorful ones are the ones that really excite me.  I can just see them in client's homes where usually the husband (and sometimes the wife) don't like any window treatments at all.  I love window treatments, so these would be a nice compromise.  Sometimes I recommend roman shades to people who don't want bigger treatments, but I think these blinds are much better for light control, and to give a clean, modern look.

These above are all from the Collection by Karim Rashid, exclusive to Velux Blinds Direct.  They are all made with blackout lining blocking 100% of the light, so are perfect for bedrooms.  Te also keep heat in during the winter with their an aluminum backing.  What a great product - one I'm happy to endorse.

So welcome VeluxBlindsDirect -  I am so happy to have you as a new sponsor!
