Blinds & Shutters Against Humidity Exhaustion

I’ve just got back from a short tour of family who live in Texas.  They’re near enough to each other to make one trip so very worthwhile.  We did all the things families do when they’ve lived apart for years – toured the out of town shopping malls and watched the millions of channels on tv!   Seeing ow they like to renovate homes or in fact completely gut them and start all over again is quite exhiliarating.  Expensive though.  I saw a series of programmes where they were stripping them out from top to bottom and after all the floors were stripped and replaced by solid flooring, they then added rugs and other soft furnishings.  At kleast it looked lessl like an early settler’s hovel!  Their choices for blinds and shutters are necessary to combat the exhausting heat and humidity in the summer months.  So colour is introduced with cushions and sofa covers.  Bedding too often looks more cheery than back home.
