Bali Natural Shades in Coastal Living Magazine

Interior designer Blair Gordon chose Bali (R) Natural Shades, Cordoba Grasses (Color: Harvest) to make the most of his client’s beachy Key West cottage. In the article, Gordon said that the blind’s textures and warm, natural colors helped create the vintage character he wanted while still adding some modern style. And, with the top down/bottom up option, his clients can have privacy while still letting in some of that gorgeous Florida view and sunshine.

If you want to achieve a more natural look with soft, filtered light, these shades made from carefully selected woods, reeds and grasses might be just what you need. Check out the February issue of Coastal Living to see for yourself.

Make a Template to Hang Your Curtain Rods

I was going to have to hang four curtain rods, I came up with a solution to hang them all at the same height and the same distance from the window.  This process in the past has involved measuring up, measuring out, using a level, repeat. Sometimes it would involve drilling multiple holes when something didn’t work out.  So, I took some time to figure out where I wanted the holes and I made a template.
