Window Treatments

Less is more

Style traditionnel

Modern elegance with simple lines is in – heavy layered windows are out. Valances, swags, blinds and shades are the defining window treatment nowadays. With the popularity of large architectural windows in new home construction or renovation projects, the idea of space and unlimited light is the choice of home buyers today.

Natural elements

Style traditionnel

Natural window treatments simply mean using fabrics and wood that is not a threatened resource. Rice, bamboo, hemp and cork continue to grow in popularity as people around the world become more aware of the earth's condition.

Working with colours

Style traditionnel

As design goes Contemporary, large floral patterns and bold colours have become less popular lately. Earth tones are the classic choice and fit well in any decor or room style. Cool colours such as light blue, aqua and deep blue hues have gained popularity. Reds and related warm tones are also in vogue right now.

Fabric and prints

Style traditionnel

If you decide to go with a printed fabric, make sure that you choose a large random print pattern rather than a small repetitive one. Designers also prefer stripes over solid colours. Even though window treatments are less bulky, it is still important to choose a high-quality fabric to accent the windows. Ideally, choose a satin blend or velvet fabric for a more distinguished look that you will be proud of.
