My brochure cover

When I needed to come up with a cover for my brochure, I chose a picture of one of my treatments that is beautiful and unique. It is a window style that many of my clients struggle with to decorate. Hope it gives you an idea for your own high style windows!

Small Space Decorating

I have just finished reading the newest issue of House Beautiful Magazine with its feature on small space decorating ideas and suggestions. Those who know me know I live in my own small space and have written an e-book on this topic I have lived with for years. If you get a chance to get a copy and read this feature, I know you will enjoy it. We all have a small space somewhere that needs help.

Green Is "In"

Here at Creatively Yours Custom, we firmly believe in green decorating to help our planet and environment. It is not about a green color choice rather it has to do with using eco-friendly products in design. To introduce this practice let’s start with a few simple choices we all can make.
♣Purchase organic cotton bath towels available at most major stores. Cotton is a renewable source and when grown organically, uses no chemicals. You help preserve the soil and get a really soft towel. Cottonis also biodegradable.
♣Bamboo makes a wonderful wood floor. It is a renewable resource and does not use formaldehyde or give off toxic odors in your home. You’ll all breathe better!
♣We all have old draperies, bedspreads, etc. sitting around the house waiting to go to the landfill. You could donate them to shelters, Humane Societies, veterinary clinics to name a few. Think reusable not disposable.
