At Strickland’s Blinds, Shades & Shutters, we are gearing up for an exciting winter season with holiday window treatments galore. Across the North Carolina coast, warm, thick draperies and thermal blinds and shades open to beautifully lit Christmas trees, glowing Menorahs, and little drummer boys. As we sing jingles, light up the fireplace, and turn on our favorite holiday flicks, we can’t help but think of the perfect holiday window treatments to match – and the classic characters who could use them. Here are a few of our favorites.

Santa Claus and Blackout Shades: During the winter season, the North Pole is awash in dark, long nights as Santa and the elves work hard to prepare for Christmas. But come summertime, the Arctic transforms under the Midnight Sun, with full daylight for 24 hours! For this reason, Santa Claus needs strong blackout shades so he can get the rest he needs all year long. We recommend rich, thick red draperies atop the shades, for increased privacy and a stylish touch Mrs. Claus will love.

Frosty the Snowman and Insulated Draperies: For Frosty the Snowman, keeping cool is key — and snowy light gray and white insulated draperies are an ideal solution. Insulated window treatments protect the home from outside sunlight and heat, maintaining a cool and consistent temperature inside all hours of the day.

Snoopy and Plantation Shutters: Snoopy lives in a classic red dog house, but where are his window treatments? For such a beloved and social pooch, we recommend bright red plantation shutters. The shutters match his rustic, country-style home and can be or tilted slightly to let a little light in or swung open entirely for holiday socializing with Charlie Brown and the entire Peanuts gang. We can definitely see Snoopy swinging red plantation shutters open in the mornings to yellow birdsong and blinking multicolored Christmas lights.

The Leg Lamp and Motorized Aluminum Blinds: One of the most recognizable and ugly-beautiful movie props of all time, The Leg Lamp calls for a special holiday window treatment — one that appeals to Ralphie’s embarrassed mom and proud pop. Motorized aluminum blinds let the light in, but when tilted just so, they also prevent the neighbors from seeing the lamp. The Old Man can open the blinds entirely for a full-frontal view of his prized possession, while Mrs. Parker can use the motorized feature to bring them back down. With custom window treatments, everyone’s happy!
