Enhancing the style and drama of your window treatments can have a massive impact on the design of your home. Creating an aesthetic that looks like you paid a fortune for a designer is simple. Designer influenced style almost always features layered window treatments. When you layer your window treatments, you create visual focal points throughout your living space. Bringing in bold color, combining texture, and mixing prints in your custom drapes choices create an eclectically chic look that will never be boring.
This is an excellent way to fool people into thinking you’ve sprung for a designer. Layering shutters or blinds with beautiful custom drapery combines heightened design with a lived-in look. Having a base of blinds against the window also means that your drapes are the star of the show and allows you to leave them open without comprising privacy.
If you like mixing prints
Print on print mixing has been very popular the last few years. Print mixing provides a wealth of visual interest and gives your home a cozy atmosphere. Textured solids, geometric, floral, stripes, ikats, toile—they can all be mixed together to create a look to love. If you’re just venturing into print mixing, choose prints with a common thread to tie them together. For example, choose a color palette—then mix a solid, a small-scale print, and a large pattern that is all in the same color family. Odd numbers of prints seem to work together the most efficiently.
If you want just a touch of color or print
If you want to add a touch of color to your windows, but don’t want to overwhelm the eye, custom valances are your solution. Valances add a colorful designer’s touch to enhance a window’s proportions and can easily conceal the headrail of an undertreatment Layer over wooden blinds or sheer curtains to maintain a touch of flare while still achieving the visual interest of layering. If you are installing valances alone, choose a bold fabric that will draw the eye up and make the room seem larger.
