Creating beautiful window treatments is one of my favorite elements of any design project. Not only do they function for practical purposes, but they also add the finishing touch to any room.
Here are some of my favorite styles:
- For formal spaces, drapery panels can add some drama and will soften the spaces where there are tall ceilings.
- I will incorporate a solid dupioni silk, crisp linen or a print.
- Adding a tape trim down the leading edge of a solid panel creates a more finished look with a solid fabric and creates a more tailored feel.
- Using a bold colored fabric or heavy texture in a formal space such as velvet is a great way to add some color and drama.
- Don’t forget the hardware! Gone are the days of super stylized rods and finials. I opt for simple clean lines with smooth metal rods and acrylic hardware works well for formal spaces to create a clean but glamorous look.
- For bedrooms I recommend a simple solid linen with black out to create a soothing palette and allows you to sleep in!
- Roman shades are a great option for bathrooms and bedrooms if you are wanting a crisp, clean look.
- For bedrooms you can use a black out lining and for bathrooms you can opt for a privacy or light filtering shade
- Roman shades are the perfect option to frame a window in a kitchen by adding some color and pattern
- Adding a colorful tape trim or geometric trim can give a simple shade some style
- Woven shades are the perfect option for light filtering spaces that can have a more natural look
- Unlined woven shades are great for kitchen and bathrooms to create some privacy but not have total black out or heavy fabric.
- In Living Rooms woven shades can add another layer to a large window and they add privacy at night.
- In bedrooms a black out woven shade can create some texture but is also practical if there is black out
