Wood Shutters for Our Lakeside Home

My wife and I bought a piece of property next to a lake a few years ago. Last year we had a cottage built on the property. We replaced the aging boat dock, and now have a really nice lakeside home. It is perfect for the two of us and our three pups. In picking out items to decorate it, we really liked the look of the wood shutters from Orange County Blinds. They are custom made for each window. They are installed on the inside, and you have louvered slats that open and close to control light and privacy. You can also swing them wide open.

We really like the house to be filled with light during the day, but we like full privacy at night. The wood shutters are great for this. We swing them open in the morning in the dining nook off from the kitchen. It really brightens up the area. The window faces east over the lake, and we sit and watch the sun rise over the horizon while we eat breakfast. Read the rest of this entry »

There are quite a few really neat designs, but I was just focused on the 3D Sunflower sheets. I was not really expecting to be wowed, because I have seen 3D films in the past and not been that impressed.

Seeing this 3D bedding made me realize just how amazing 3D can be though when it actually works. Read the rest of this entry »
