Just a few years ago, my wife and I had a house fire. It took more than five months to get our new home livable again, and then we were held with the daunting job of buying new furniture and draperies for all of the rooms, and getting new bedding. I was trying to find a recliner for my wife, that was as close to the one we had in the old house, but that was starting to be a pointless search. I talked to one furniture store owner who told me that if I could find the pattern I wanted, she would have the chair custom built for me. It was kind of fun, seeing everything come together, but the recliner no longer matched the rest of my new furniture. I didn’t mind, but some of the people who came to our new home viewing had a real concern with it. I was hoping for a classic look, but it became more of a desert eclectic feel. Nothing seemed to match, but it came together nicely. We had bay windows in every room, that had the most good views, and I wanted the window treatments to suit the style of the room and the view. The only window that was hard to finish, was the window that faced the roadway. My wife found a set of drapery that had colors that complimented the entire view. There were greens, browns, and greys that blended wonderfully, and my room was a soft beige, with dark wood flooring. It genuinely was quite nice when all of us got done with everything.
