Napkin Nights!

Have you paid your patio table much attention lately?  You’d be surprised–the right napkin can really make the night as far as your dining space goes!

Just as you can switch up accessories on an outfit, you can also reinvent the look of your home decor with a quick switch of small details. Minute yet important touches, such as place mats,  napkins, and boldly placed colors, can add a punch of fun to any area and completely set the tone for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Here, see how two different looks can transform the same patio table:

Radiant Red!

Warm and radiant colors can make a space bright, energetic, and inviting.

Cool Neutrals.

Cooler colors and sophisticated neutrals provide a calm, relaxing, and pensive aura.

The Tailor Maid
can help create both of these looks, and many more!  Bring us your favorite fabric selections, or let us create your own custom look for your dinner, pool, or picnic table. At about only $5.00 a napkin, you can achieve the chic and customized look your decor has been yearning for at a very affordable cost.

Another great thing about custom napkins? They’re green! “Good for the environment” green, that is. No more paper napkins to throw away!  You can mix up your decor with lots of color, and cloth napkins are also such an elegant touch to every dining space, be it out by the pool, on your deck or patio, or in a classic dining room.

Spring into Spring!

After a drizzly winter, bright colors are just the ticket to spruce up your mood, AND your home! Here at The Tailor Maid, we specialize in custom home accessories.  We can work with you to custom create pillows, drapes, slip covers, napkins, table runners, and so much more–all in whatever patterns or colors you can find.

Did you know that giving your living space a “face lift” might be more affordable than you think?

Here are some great tips for redecorating this Spring!

1. Pick good colors

Create depth and eye catching interest with different shades and hues of your current favorite colors. Or, you can always revert to the color wheel and select colors that truly compliment each other. It’s also great and easy to pull minor accent colors from larger pieces or furniture with pillows and and accessories; doing so will also give the room a new look for less!

2. Recover!

Acquiring new pillows doesn’t have put you on a pillow form shopping spree! We can re-cover your old pillows with new fabrics and trims! Adding a zipper will allow an easy color change for the next season.

3. Let in the light!

Switch out heavy drapes and drab colors for lighter window treatments. Nothing can make a room feel fresher than open windows and flowing window treatments in sheer fabrics or sunny colors.

4. It’s all in the details

Don’t neglect your tables! Pull your decor’s look together with coordinating napkins, table runners, and linens. Often times, the kitchen or dining room can be easily pushed aside when it comes to soft furnishings. (Poor rooms!) Give them some attention too with coordinating treatments!

5. Flower picking

Spring and flowers go hand-in-hand for a reason, and often represent new growth and a fresh start. If you can’t keep up with fresh flowers in your home, floral printed fabrics can be your best friend! After all, you don’t have to water your couch.

The Tailor Maid can help you with your new fresh start this spring. Drop by one of our two locations and consult with our creative staff to get your custom home furnishings started!

Happy Spring!
