Can you sense spring in your neck of the woods, or are you still waking up to snow-blanketed surroundings? Nothing says spring quite like a flower bud in bloom – delicate, unfurling petals infused with color and the promise of a new season. Even if Mother Nature’s taking a bit of time to coax the blossoms open, you can still enjoy these beauties in full glory on your floors. Start your spring decorating now with flower shaped rugs and floral area rugs. Let them boost your mood, and you’ll be ready when spring is glowing with color and buzzing with life.
Flower shaped rugs have petal-like contours that mimic an open blossom. These unique, shaped rugs will look stunning on your floors, no matter which flower variety you choose. The Carreen Magnolia Shaped Rugs have a quiet beauty and gentility, along with a lavishly soft feel that you’ll love underfoot. The Claire Bloom Flower Shaped Rugs draw their inspiration from the timeless rose, bringing intricate design and hues of lavender to your decor.
Floral rugs contain a blossoming bounty within their edges, their surfaces strewn with scattered blooms. The Floral Oasis Rugs will be a refreshing sight when you step indoors. Their cream background plays host to pretty flowers in shades of teal, blue, green, and brown. Or, let the Floral Vines Rugs turn your floor into a meadow, with carved peonies, hyacinths, and vining florets in shades of yellow, red, green, and purple on a light turquoise ground.
Do you love the look of a curtain panel with a coordinating valance but prefer the simplicity of hanging a single panel? If so, consider a curtain panel with an attached valance the next time you choose to update your window treatment.
The attached valance mimics or complements the curtain panel design, assuring a beautiful look with the elegance you desire. What’s more, this window offering is a good value for your money; not only do you receive a panel with a valance, but this window treatment only requires a single rod to hang. Purchase one panel for a simple window covering or two panels for a traditional appearance.
A sheer curtain panel with an attached valance is also ideal for spring. Let that welcome sunshine filter into your room, and evoke an old-fashioned charm with roses, magnolias, or macrame lace detailing.
For all its frosty beauty and captivating snowfalls, winter can be quite the challenging season for your home. Are you dreading drafts and high utility bills this winter? Insulating your window is key when it comes to combating the winter weather. These thermal window solutions will help you get started, whether you want to change your entire window treatment or insulate your existing curtains.
The Ultimate Blackout Thermal Curtain Panel features a three-layer construction, with a tight weave of colored yarns on the front and back sandwiched around an inner layer of black yarns. The thick fabric and density will block drafts and help to maintain room temperature. This grommet-top, insulated panel is available in three curtain lengths, as well as a patio panel size.
Available in both pinch-pleat and tab-top styles, the Crosby Thermal Curtains have an acrylic foam backing that has insulating qualities. Use your clip rings to hang the pinch-pleat curtains or patio panel.
If you prefer a bold pattern, consider the Trellis Thermalogic™ Insulated Curtains. These grommet-top, energy-efficient curtains make a splash with their trellis design. These Thermalogic™ curtains have a Weathermate thermal shade backing that keeps out the cold in the winter. These versatile, insulated curtains can be paired with the Weathermate Solid Color Curtains for a coordinating look.
Fond of your existing curtains? Keep them up! – but consider making an update or two. A thermal curtain liner placed behind your current curtains will make your window more energy-efficient. The Ultimate Thermalogic™ Blackout Curtain Panel Liner can be used with tab-top, pole-top, grommet-top, and pinch pleat curtains. This white liner has an acrylic suede backing.
Are you dealing with drafts at the sides of your curtains? The Blockaide Wrap Around Curtain Rod is a wonderful solution. This metal curtain rod has a clever design that allows your curtains to wrap around the sides. This rod is adjustable from side to side and can be used with tab-top, grommet-top, and rod pocket curtains.
Draft guards are also convenient protectors against cool-air currents. Use draft blockers at the bottom of a door (or possibly on a wide windowsill) to provide insulation. The cute Kitten and Puppy Doorstopper Draft Guards are 36”W and will appeal to pet lovers with their rows of sweet animals.

St. Nick won’t be the only one finding his way to your fireplace this year. You and your family members will be gathering to read the paper, shop on your phones, wrap presents, or sip hot chocolate. Make your mantel a sight to behold with these holiday decorations.
Hang those Christmas stockings by the chimney with care – but put the plain hooks aside in favor of something more festive. Create a lovely line-up this Yuletide season by displaying decorative stocking holders that complement your favorite stockings. If you’re drawn to elegant mantel decorations, choose stocking holders classically adorned with scrolls and seasonal wishes. For a whimsical display, let these cheeky Clauses dangle their lists and beards from your mantel top.
Your mantel is also the perfect perch for cute holiday visitors who need a little rest, like this gingerbread couple.

Tuck in frosted greenery behind them or sprinkle in some ornaments to make them feel at home.
Electric Candle Strands
After you’ve shoveled the driveway and trudged through the snow, it’s all-too-tempting to curl up on the couch and doze off. Replace real candles with an electric candle strand, and you’ll feel comfortable catching your forty winks. These pillars softly (and safely) illuminate your mantel top. Nestle the candle strand in among your winter garland and pine cones.
If you’re looking for a mantel decoration that doesn’t stifle your creativity, a holiday mantel scarf should be at the top of your list. This beautiful decoration will drape over your mantel in elegant holiday fashion – but it still allows for whatever festive display you choose to add.
Whether they’re deer prancing in splendor across your mantel or nutcrackers keeping (glittery) guard, decorative figurines embody the lore of the season. Let these figurines remind you of cherished holiday stories each time you see them. Position a garland behind them for a backdrop of greenery, and complete the display with a goblet-style hurricane and lighted strand.

Your entryway and living room may be in the seasonal spirit, but what about the other areas in your home? Do you walk from room to room, feeling festive one minute and not-so-jolly the next? Wouldn’t you love to enjoy Christmas cheer wherever you go, whether you’re settling in for a long winter’s nap or soaking in the bubbles? Let seasonal joy radiate through your home with holiday bedding, shower curtains, and window treatments.
