Historically speaking, during big election years, softer and safe colors are what we are drawn to. It’s more of a neutral world, with no really “happy” colors available. So what do you do if you want to use color in your home? There are still areas around the house where you can add color, like on the windows, walls, and even the ceiling. Talk to a trained professional at Window Treats here in New York City. We’ll be happy to help you determine how you can use color in your rooms.
A Unified Look
To visually expand the space and create a blend of color throughout the room, start with the floor and go very neutral, such as with a soft off-white to light beige or tan. Use paint to make the walls a restful gray-green, and for the window coverings, select Hunter Douglas Pirouette® window shadings to match the walls.
Window Treatments: Color or No?
Remember, colored window treatments will jump out and be noticed first. Some say it is like putting art on the window. Whites and off-whites are a safe selection and will stand the test of time. This makes changing other design elements colors in the room much easier.
Window Treatment Choices
A few popular Hunter Douglas Window treatments include custom shutters, which are available in wood, faux wood, and polysatin materials as well as custom paints, stains, and neutrals. Duette® Honeycomb Shades offer a honeycomb construction and are available in hundreds of colors, textures, and cell sizes. Silhouette® window shadings have fabric vanes suspended between two sheer fabric facings. They are offered in neutrals and pastels to soft hues.
Using Color in Your Home
If color you like to change colors in your home often, stay neutral when selecting blinds, shades, and flooring, which all tend to be more expensive to change out. On the other hand, paint, throw pillows, and accessories are relatively inexpensive to change. You might even decide to rotate these items seasonally to give your home fresh looks throughout the year. In the end, color used correctly will brighten your mood, provide a tranquil retreat, or put a smile on your face, so don’t be afraid to add a touch of color—even in an election year!
