Customize your Dallas Design Closet

From adjustable shelving to personal touches like décor, your closet should make sense for you and your lifestyle. If you don’t like or wear beautiful artistic shoes on a regular basis, don’t opt for the clear shoe containers or displaying your shoes as the main attraction. Maybe it’s purses, or maybe you’d rather keep everything under wraps. The point is, your closet is another extension of your design and lifestyle aesthetic. So, do what feels right for you!

Have you ever heard the phrase, “happiness is a place between too little and too much”? Because we hadn’t, but we couldn’t agree more!

Rayon in Rugs

Rayon rugs are difficult to clean. As they continue to grow in popularity, be prepared.

Cleaners have encountered rayon in upholstery fabric for years. But designers also, unfortunately, increasingly embrace the silk-like look of rayon for rugs.

Rayon rugs present many cleaning challenges. This fiber does not hold up to foot traffic or consumer, do-it-yourself spotting/cleaning. Professional cleaning may exacerbate pre-existing texture distortion and sprouting…

How to Clean Area Rugs

Viscose, or art silk, has the same soft, luxurious look and feel as silk, but at a much more affordable price.

Viscose is extremely absorbent so remove stains using a damp cloth and a mild cleanser. For tough stains, use the stain solution suggested above and gently apply the foam that rises to the top to the stained area. Blot with a clean damp cloth to finish. Try to keep a viscose rug in a cool and dry location…

Designers have embraced the silk-like look of rayon for garments, upholstery fabrics, and area rugs. But rayon rugs present many challenges for rug cleaners, as this fiber doesn’t hold up to foot traffic and consumer do-it-yourself spotting/cleaning.

How to Protect Fabric Furniture From Stains and Dirt

The soft, pink velvet couch of my dreams recently materialized in my life: an on-trend, secondhand West Elm lounger that is miraculously stain- and dirt-free. I love it like my own child and paid a small fortune to buy it, too, but given my anxiety and its “pristine-ness,” it’s already giving me issues. The main one being that I haven’t been doing much sitting on it. I refuse to let it be besmirched by my subway clothes, for starters…

Why You Should Melt Ice Cubes on Your Rugs and Carpets

Whether you’re rearranging or moving out, heavy furniture can leave behind quite the unattractive footprint on your carpet — and the longer the furniture has been there, the harder it is to persuade those carpet fibers to spring back into shape. So instead of laying on the floor with various carpet cleaning tools for hours on end, try this super simple method instead.

How to Clean Drapes and Curtains

*”I wish to thank you for your patience and great service with cleaning our drapes while we were remodeling our house. Due to unforeseen problems our renovations stretched much longer than anticipated. You held our fabrics in storage without a complaint and were very gracious when I notified you of each reschedule and delay. John even promised to help with the rehanging of the curtains when my new sheers come in to ensure a proper hanging height. I would not have protested you charging for storage for the amount of time you had my drapes. You took some of the stress away from the experience of remodeling. Yours was then best experience of the time.” – Ed Page

Can I Clean My Own Drapes at Home?

Drapes and curtains get dusty and dirty from time to time. Not only is this unsightly, but can be a health issue for people with allergies. Professional dry-cleaning is the safest route, but in most homes the window treatments amounts to a lot of fabric that would be very expensive to dry-clean. So are there options for cleaning drapes without the expense of dry-cleaning?
