How To Make The Most of Family Heirlooms

Family heirlooms can be passed down from generation to generation, if properly kept. These treasures mean more than any digital photograph from last year’s Fourth of July party. They are items that link us to our past in ways that are often indescribable and can often provide insight into our family history.

Perhaps you have a doll that your grandma used to play with or letters from your grandfather to your grandmother during the war or even a piece of furniture passed down from your great grandparents, through the generations, to you. Regardless of what it is, taking care of family heirlooms are the key to passing them on to the next generation.

Window Treatments: Traditional, Transitional or Contemporary?

When selecting new window treatments, one of the first decisions to make is what type of overall style to radiate. Imagine what type of feelings and reactions are desired based on walking into, visiting, working in or living within the targeted room. Given the room’s colors and decor, should treatments be traditional, transitional or contemporary?

First, consider the size and shape of the windows, as well as factors out of your control, such as sunlight. Then contemplate the color, patterns or textures that might look in balance with the overall effect you’re trying to achieve in any given room. If there already is a focal point in the room, or a more busy furniture pattern, then a toned down color or pattern of window treatments might be in order. If not, more playful, active treatments may be just the right touch. Or, combining portions of the three main design styles could be done deliberately to get a fresh, unique outcome.
