How does having children relate to having custom window treatments?
Hmmm….if you’re married and have kids (or pets), you probably can relate to what I am about to say. If you don’t have kids and will someday, you will understand. If not, this is just an analogy that makes sense to me.
Do you remember the B.C. (before child/children) period? I don’t. All I can remember is the past almost 17 years, it seems like all our conversation, focus, agenda and planning is mostly revolving about our son. He is the center piece in our lives. For the past month, our son is away for a student exchange program oversea, my husband and I feel so lost; we have to really make effort to readjust this new environment. This is weird, pathetic and almost depressing… ☺ How did we become so depending on our children or pets? My logical answer is because they bring us JOY.
Well, this is not quite as dramatic but it makes me remember a comment once a client had told me. “It was OK to be in a house without window treatments, you probably did not even know what you are missing. But once you have them, you just can never live without them again. They make your house a homey place; the color, textile and the window treatments that incorporated with the home décor. They are part of memory as much as of the furniture and the house itself.” I totally agreed. Until you experience the comfort of fabric in your home, you won’t know what you are missing out.
