Okay, so I admit they are not the best pictures in the world, but I hoped they would give you a glimpse of what went on inside the Vision 10- International Window Covering Expo. (I took them with my iphone even though my camera was in the car.  Once inside the Georgia World Congress center, it is a major hike even to move among buildings, much less to one  of the parking lots and I did have a camera with me.) I did manage to get a lot of pictures the window fashions prepared exclusively for the show.  What I did not get was pictures of the beautiful fabrics and sheers that are now out there. (I laughed with some of my designer friends that some looked only appropriate for the next bordello we might be asked to decorate: over the top.) But the majority were quite beautiful in their simple elegance.  There was understated clean-lined hardware and walls of gorgeous trim.

I was stuck by some of the international vendors that are coming in with new, simple ideas in shades for windows. My pictures did not turn out well of them, but suffice it to say, they lie completely flat as they open and close, by having strips of sliding, alternating fabric and sheer.  They are definately a more contemporary look.  As I am able to find more pictures, I will try to get up a post on just these.

I did manage to visit with designer friends and pick up a new line or two.  I was inspired.  I hope you are.
