Patio Awning Fabrics are not what they used to be!

By Kim Newby for Innovative Openings If you haven't taken a look at the fabric selection available for patio awnings lately, it's time to look again! Even I was surprised when I took a look this week at the vast variety of fabric offerings Innovative Openings offers from Durasol and Sunesta, and the truth was right there in front of me: awnings ain't what they used to be! Awnings, Old School The patio awnings I remember from my youth had one basic incarnation: bold stripes and a scalloped valance hanging from the front. Now, there's nothing wrong with crisp, high contrast stripes, in the right setting. But it's not for every setting or every home, and it's not your only choice anymore! The New Choices in Solid Colors [caption id="attachment_7029" align="alignright" width="170"]...

Plan to Personalize Your Patio, and Don’t Forget Shade!

by Kim Newby for Innovative Openings You know what that Pharrell song "Happy" says... "like a room without a roof". Hellooo...! That's your patio! If there's a place to be happy during summer, this is it! How can you make your patio a personalized place to be happy? Here are 7 easy planning ideas from Innovative Openings. 1. What do you want to do on your patio? Do you want to just kick back in a deep, soft chair and watch the clouds go by? Do you want to eat meals outside?

Silhouette Window Shadings from Innovative Openings- They’re Magic!

by Kim Newby for Innovative Openings   Today, I'd like to write a blog on Silhouette Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas.  Here goes: Silhouette Window Shadings are beautiful. The end. ..............     What? You need more? There is nothing more- that one word says it all. Okay... maybe there is more, but that is the most intrinsic thing about Silhouettes- they are quite simply beautiful. You get an almost ethereal combination of function and form with Silhouettes- almost more than one window treatment deserves to have. The ingenious vanes operate similarly to time honored venetian blinds, but they are a quantum leap beyond where that design left off. Hunter Douglas' Ingenious Silhouette® Design Hunter's own description of the Silhouette® wi...
