How often have you looked at new horizontal or vertical window treatments (maybe even ones you already own yourself…) and thought that maybe they looked too hard, or a bit more angular on their own than you’d like? Fear not. The answer is much easier than you think.
You want the convenience, light control and excellent privacy that hard window fashions afford, but something about all those parallel and perpendicular lines can detract from the formality of your comfortable room and beautiful décor. Add “soft” draperies to “hard” blinds or shades, or vice versa, and you’ll have beautiful and utilitarian window décor perfection!
Combining “soft” fabric swags, jabots or padded, fabric covered cornices to the industry’s most flexible “hard” window fashions can be like having your cake and eating it too!
Soft treatments “over” hard ones, like cellular shades and popular horizontal or vertical blinds, can complement each other while augmenting the more formal décor of rooms that may require it. Consider combining soft and hard treatments in Living, Dining and Bed Rooms, and really anyplace light control and a touch of elegance make sense. Your windows AND your home will benefit from the marriage of hard and soft window treatments. Softer edges and the best in light control will be the happy result!
