Flowers and trees are blooming. Temperatures are rising. Everywhere you look, the Kansas City community is bustling with the activities of springtime – although it already feels a bit like summer! A new season means that it is time to freshen up your home with some of the latest design trends with colors, patterns and textures. Let us help guide you through how these design techniques can make a style statement at your windows with custom drapery panels.
Colors, Patterns & Textures. Step into any store, and you will notice the pizzazz of colors, patterns and textures that has taken hold of interior design. Color blocking consists of choosing three bold, eye-catching colors, to contrast one another. Pair that with the enthusiastic zig-zag of chevron, or the criss-crossing of lattice for a dynamic style statement. Textures add elements of design, for dimension and depth. The important thing to remember about the combination of any, and all, of these trends is that you don’t need much to make a room pop. Start by choosing the colors and patterns that appeal to you, and go from there.
Trends at the Window. The color, pattern and texture trends of interior design do not stop at the window. In fact, the windows in your space exist as the backdrop of an amazing scene. What’s hot right now in window design? The professionals at One Stop Decorating have some amazing ideas for you.
Layering. One of the most prevailing methods in window design is the sophisticated look of layering. When thinking about window treatments, function is of the utmost importance. But of course, design is what will you make you smile every time you enter the room. Dimension and color provide elements for coordinating design. Custom drapery panels, when added to your window treatments, heighten the level of style for a dramatic effect.
Decorative Hardware. Customize the look of your window design with the accents of decorative hardware, such as finials and rods. Grommets are the most popular way to hang drapery panels right now, adding a clean finish at the top. Whether you enjoy the complexity of intricate detailing or the simplicity of smooth design, decorative hardware can finish your window treatments with a polished look.
Drapery for Design. Drapery panels can add function and style at the window, but with the aforementioned layering effect, many clients are now choosing stationary drapery panels to highlight the beauty of the window treatment, with the accent of color and styling of a drapery side panel. These stationary drapery panels frame the window for a striking appearance.
Banding. Bring the whole room together with the dramatic style effect of banding. With a strong contrast of color, or the allure of geometric designs, your custom drapery panels have the potential to add a layer of sophisticated charm and sleek design with the inspiration of your own personal style.
