Autumn Time Under the Patio Awning

[caption id="attachment_7477" align="alignleft" width="625"] Glowing nighttime patio tablescape; from[/caption] by Kim Newby for Innovative Openings Today, on September 19th here in beautiful Colorado, I know I can look ahead to plenty of nice days left this season under my patio awning. I am giddy just thinking about ways to "autumnize" my patio space, and then be able to sit outside in the milder, beautiful weather and enjoy the rich hues and natural textures of the season. It's a favorite time of year for me... maybe it's because I have a fall birthday, and lots of positive associations with the season. Or maybe it's just because it's a beautiful time to be outside!

Printed Shades Can Hide Your TV!

Some of those involve some serious effort and expense, like a built-in platform that rises up out of a cabinet to bring the TV into view, then lowers back into the cabinet when you're done watching. Other methods involve a solid panel that either rises up or slides into a recessed area in the wall to reveal the TV, then back when you're finished. There are a numbe...

Silhouette UltraGlide 2 Operating System- Convenience and Elegance- Click and go!

Click it and walk away! Today's Silhouette window shading is easier to operate than ever, thanks to Hunter Douglas' new UltraGlide® 2 operating system. This really is a huge improvement- lowering the shade used to be a process, but now, after a simple, single motion, the shade gracefully lowers itself and opens the inner vanes with ease. It's a beautiful thing, and can bring just a little bit of simple elegance to your home. The Window Coverings Manufacturing Association agreed, giving the UltraGlide 2 an honorable mention nod in the best new technical innovation category of the 2014 WCMA Product Awards. What sets Silhouette UltraGlide 2 apart? What makes this operating system so much easier is a retractable cord system. This is especially useful for windows that sit above counter t...
