Inspired SpotlightIt’s a new year and I am back with the Inspired Spotlight every Thursday.  I started this last year but never really followed through with it and I am happy to say that this year it is going to be GREAT!  I already have about six weeks planned for you!  If you want to guest post for me, just send me an email at

Today, I introduce to you Sonya Hamilton at Beyond The Screen Door.  She is Ahhh-mazing!!  She is an Interior Designer and her blog oozes with eye candy!

Her Turquoise Door is STUNNING to me!  I don’t know anyone else that could pull off this color so beautifully!WOW!!

009Without further ado, let me hand it over to Sonya!


Hi, I’m Sonya from Beyond the Screen Door. Beyond the Screen Door is a place where I hope share a little of what I do, be creative and inspire as well as be inspired! I was blessed to grow up around creative people whose gifts range furniture making, to cooking, music to sewing and many things in between.

I am interested in almost every aspect of home design, but a good portion of what I do involves sewing. Window treatments, bedding, pillows, slipcovers, etc.

Today I’m going to show you a window treatment I recently finished for a young boy’s bedroom. I feel the details are what makes this window treatment.


Grayson’s Mom was excited to use multiple fabrics and details. The theme of his room is hunting with the emphasis on the hunting dogs. The lower portion of the walls is a fun, whimsical, almost cartoon-like camouflage paint treatment. We chose a collection of fabrics to coordinate with the existing color scheme.


The window treatment includes 5 fabrics; a small dark brown houndstooth, a faux leather, a blue/green plaid, an orange/cream circle fabric and a bright green brushed fabric.


As you can see the brown houndstooth makes up the upper 2/3 of the panel. The bottom 1/3 is the large orange/cream circle print. In between is a 6” band of the green brushed fabric with a self-made piping out of the green/blue plaid. The top of the panel is finished with another row of the piping and faux leather 2” tabs. The back side of the tabs are lined with the plaid for an added detail.

006 It takes a little more time to include these types of detail but the end result of so worth it. I’ll be sharing more information and tutorials on these details at Beyond the Screen Door if you’d like to drop by and take a look!

Beth, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of Inspired Spotlight Thursday! I am honored!
