Happy Monday!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful post-Valentine’s Day weekend. I feel like everyone seems to have a “love it” or “whatever” relationship with the “Hallmark Holiday”. We tend to be on the “whatever” side of things. We rarely get each other gifts and don’t usually do the romantic dinner out kind of thing. However, we do have a little tradition that just so happens to fall on Valentine’s Day weekend every year when we plan a little getaway with several other couple friends. It started four years ago and just kind of stuck. This year we didn’t go too far from home and rented an airbnb in Athens which is the cutest “little” college town where the University of Georgia is located about 30 minutes from our home. It is mine and Mark’s alma mater so we love spending time there plus there are soooo many fun places and amazing restaurants.
Today I am just sitting here doing a little daydreaming. ONE… wishing we had the time and an open weekend to finish up the last few things in “Our Treehouse Wonderland” and TWO… drooling over the idea of installing VELUX No Leak Solar Powered Fresh Air Skylights in our little mountain home away from home. In pretty much any interiors situation, I feel like lighting is EVERYTHING. And as much as I love a beautiful light fixture, natural lighting is everything and then some. Natural lighting literally just makes you feel good. It makes colors more beautiful and your home just feel more alive.
That is why I am loving the idea of installing VELUX No Leak Solar Powered Fresh Air Skylights in our treehouse living room. They provide natural light from above, fresh air, a sky view and tree views which would be gorgeous in the mountains! Natural light from above provides balanced light throughout a room and helps colors appear true. Natural light is such a key part of my vision for any room transformation. Like I said before, it just makes everything (paint color, rug pattern, finishes) look even better! These Skylights open to release warm air that rises to the ceiling. By also opening a window below, you can create a breeze that cools your home without having to use the AC. Sky views are calming because they connect you to nature. Think about lying on the grass as a child and staring up at the clouds – that’s the feeling having skylights can create inside your home.
VELUX also offers Solar powered skylight blinds. How cool would that be?!? Blinds allow more control over the light. Blinds can also be a great a design element that can provide a pop of color when I want it in a space as well. When retracted you cannot even tell the skylight has blinds! The blinds are remote controlled as well which is amazing!
For my little weekend daydreaming, I created a mood board to envision our “Treehouse Wonderland” living room with VELUX and I am OBSESSED. Mood boards are such a fun way to envision a completed space and to play around with multiple design ideas. I always encourage those asking for design advice to do the same. You can use anything from a collage app on a smartphone to PhotoShop to create a visual for your next home renovation projects. Here’s a peek at mine…
