Valentine’s day is here! Today may not have you scrambling to start a home improvement project, but we bet it is a day that will have you will thinking about privacy. 😉 Private candle lit dinners aside… there are just some times in our daily lives when we want to darken a room to sleep or avoid those prying eyes in general without detracting from the style of a room. Sheer horizontal shades are one of those soft, romantic window treatment options that does just that.
Imagine coming home to this scene; the fireplace is crackling and burning low, the candles are lit in preparation for a relaxing romantic evening with the one you love most in the world. Now, I will get technical again because it is easy to see what is key to the ambiance of this room… those room darkening blinds. As you can probably tell, sheer does not necessarily mean see-through and these horizontal blinds do a great job filtering out the light, providing privacy, and they look really soft, warm, and inviting. Now what is missing here…
Ah yes, the roses of course! In a design sense we love how roses and other greenery can take a very neutral room like this bedroom and add color that really pops out at you without dominating the room. For setting the mood in a private space for couples to relax in, the combination of soft romantic windows, flowers, and candles is hard to beat. Roses are a popular Valentine’s Day gift since they are the perfect symbol of a partnership. Just think about it… roses have been considered symbols of love, honor, war, politics, faith, sensuality, devotion, intrigue and beauty for centuries.
There are many ways keep the romance of Valentine’s Day alive all year long, and one of those ways is by bringing these soft sheer window treatments into your home; they are our exclusive Blindsmax brand of sheer horizontal shades, and are available with 2″ and 3″ slat sizes. Another romantic idea is to use fresh flowers all the time, if you do, be aware of any allergies your partner may have and avoid flowers like daisies and chrysanthemums and stick to choices like roses, tulips, or daffodils. Finally, we suggest that you use candles more often instead of saving them for special days. Choose fragrances you both love and set candles out for regular dinner nights, when you take a bath, or even on a nearby table while you read for a romantic ambiance any time.
