Your purchase might still be some time off, but that’s no reason to start dreaming and imagining your ideal window fashion. At Window Treats serving New Jersey and New York, we’re happy to point our customers to a useful tool from Hunter Douglas: The Design Studio™. Even if you don’t think you’re good at choosing color or patterns, this great feature can take all the guesswork out and get you prepared for a beautiful new window setup. It’s easy! Read on!
The Art of Layering
In the Design Studio, you can follow the handy guide, “The Art of Layering at the Window.” It offers a clear process, fabric folios, and suggested combinations for various product lines. You can’t go wrong! First you choose your base layer, the product that will go directly against the window, whether that’s a blind, shade, or shutter. Choices include Designer Banded Shades, Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, and more. This layer is for light control and energy efficiency at the window, and you can choose solid or textured, neutral or colored materials. Next, you choose fabrics that add drama, depth, and style. You can select from the core Design Studio line or from the featured artist collection (right now highlighting selections from textile designer Rebecca Atwood). Next, you can select side panels, which frame the window to add dimension and beauty, or drapery, which can fully cover the window to provide additional privacy and light control.
Perfect Pairings From Hunter Douglas
Don’t worry if the array of fabrics is overwhelming—the experts at Hunter Douglas offer suggestions for coordinating with tone-on-tone looks for neutrals, colors, or textures. They also suggest contrasts with color or patterns, to bring out an accent color in the room, to highlight a color from a patterned undertreatment, or to add a color that you just love. Look through the section that describes “folios” of fabrics that will work well together. For more in-depth suggestions, you can find recommended pairings in the Design Studio—specific items that will match well together.
