I have been spending a lot of my time working on the inside of my house. [Editor's note: Remember Sara's living room, rainbow ceiling, and geeky kitchen light makeover?] But recently I started thinking about what I wanted the OUTSIDE of my home to look like. What do you think I would do if I couldn't decide on a color? Use them all!
This is Offbeat Home's archive of windows posts.
The rental that we have has vertical blinds on every window and door covering. I'm terrified of them being destroyed by our two seven-month-old kittens. Have you faced this situation, and what did you do about kitten-protecting vertical blinds?
Pay homage to the history of video games by blocking out the light (and eliminating glare on your screen) with these colourful blinds from Direct Blinds. Each blind features a retro gaming character like Pac-Man or a mushroom from Mario Bros. On top of that, the graphics are made up of controllers, joysticks, and handheld gaming systems from the earliest days of gaming up to today. Can you name every device pictured?
This beautifully lit bedroom moment was created with a box on a chair, supporting a pretty pink potted geranium in front of a window. The kicker — that tiny bunting draped across the window frame. This moment is so fresh and pretty that I want to go to there.
We have cats, which means our window screens have little tears here and there. Whenever we open the windows at night to cool the house down, we get eaten alive with mosquitoes slipping inside! Short of buying new window screens, how can we mosquito-proof our windows on a budget?
