Easy to install, and a low price point: natural fiber blind treatments may be exactly what you need to create the perfect atmosphere for your home. This blog from The DIY Playbook breaks each treatment down for you. Take a look at their guide to help you weigh out the pros and cons.
For example, bamboo shades bring warmth and texture to the room. If you’re a light sleeper, you might choose a heavier treatment for a bedroom. However, for a living room, you might lean towards a solar panel that still creates privacy but allows natural light through. All that being said, blinds can be purely decorative too. If you’d like for the room to remain open and airy, adding a provenance woven wooden shade to the room or might be the right choice for you.
Local Business Spotlight
Co-founder Terry Saltzman interview local business owner,
Brendan Collier, of The Hub Cyclery in Highland Park.
Terry: Why did you choose Highland Park for your business?
Brendan: I started spending time in Highland Park about a year ago— I befriended Jenny at Abloc, and noticed there was a need or bicycle repair in the neighborhood. while Bicycles or not my full-time job anymore, I felt that opening The Hub could simultaneously provide a service, and get me out in the community meeting new people.
Terry: What do you offer the community of Highland Park?
Brendan: Besides bicycle repair, and I am also a skilled carpenter. I’ve been building retail displays & bookcases lately. My primary line of work this past year and a half has been in renovating Airstream trailers— I do most of this at my workshop in Idyllwild, and I can do that on site to some extent here in LA. I feel like Airstream can make a lot of sense as non-permanent guest housing, rentals, and ADU’s here in Highland Park. I love ‘em and they are a bunch of fun to work on.
Terry: Great name for your store! how did you come up with it and what else do you have to share with us?
Brendan: The Hub’s namesake comes from the Bicycle part of the same name, and also my goal for the service to be a tool of social gathering. Bicycles have always been a big part of my life and I’m happy to have them back in the mix for me. I have a background as a helicopter mechanic (in the Air Force) and a lot of adventure cycling, long term camping, and professional backpack guiding… it’s exciting to see everything sort of collide, now.
