We’ve had a pretty mild winter up until recently, but that doesn’t mean the limited daylight hours haven’t already had an effect on us! And because of the cold and wet weather, people have the tendency to spend most of their time at home. Cabin fever leaves many desperate for some way to lift their mood.

Here are some tips to overcome the winter blues:

  1. Try colorful pillows, throws, and decorative items. This is one of the simplest, most inexpensive ways to change the look of your room.
  2. Give one or two pieces of furniture a facelift with a slipcover! Depending on your style and decorating preference, you can have some vibrant colors of floral, stripes, plaids, or a combination of them with solids to be used for a tailored or a more relaxed look. Slip covers are costly, but if you think about it in the long run you will be using them every winter to bring life to your rooms and will extend the life of your furniture.
  3. Fresh paint for the entire room or an accent wall with lively, fresh colors will definitely do the job.
  4. How about personal photos? Have you been to a tropical island, a nice sunny vacation spot, or been on a trip that puts a smile on your face every time you think of it? Let’s be creative here! Take those photos, enlarge them, add color-coordinated matting, and voila! You have new pieces of art.

Just like the winter decorations that only come out for the Holidays, we can keep another arsenal of winter decor to defeat the winter blues.

RMCOCO did it again!

Just returned from an installation of new custom draperies and valances, in Aurora Illinois. I was so impressed and so did my client, with the beauty of the side panels and the hardware. The fabric name was Chimera, color Bark and the hard ware was from the Coco Deco collection.

The draperies were lined and interlined, that really helps when you want that extra body added to your drapes.

The hardware created more beauty, and elegance, As a matter of fact the room needed nothing more than that.

Have you tried products from RMCOCO? If not, please do and you can trust me on that!

Thanks RMCOCO!!!!
