Collaborate, Innovate, Inspire
I recently attended the International Window Coverings Expo Vision 12 in Chicago. It was FABULOUS!
The collaboration, inspiration, and innovation of being with other window treatment professionals has left my head bursting with new ideas for the windows I treat.
One can always learn more. These experts approach the window and design process from all different avenues. The result is exquisite windows and ecstatic clients.
I enjoyed the various architecture of Chicago. Each building had its own unique personality, like the windows I treat.
I loved the undulating curves of the balconies on the building outside my hotel room. This curved building is a high contrast to all the harshly straight and linear buildings surrounding it. I imagine the bottom of a valance with similar curves softening a room. See there is window treatment inspiration everywhere!
A little whimsy and fun should be added to everything. Navy Pier is Chicago’s version. Lake Michigan seems endless but it is no Atlantic Ocean. For this New Englander, the giant Ferris wheel reminded me of Nantasket Beach and the towers seem to be taken from the salt and pepper bridge aka Longfellow Bridge over the Charles River.
New Orleans next year! I can’t wait!
