"A room is just a room" until the finishing touches are created and placed.
That is when the room turns into your own unique and personalized space, reflecting your taste and lifestyle.
Window treatments are an integral piece of the interior decorating finishing puzzle, as they can provide texture, color, drama and interest to a room.
If you enjoy the clean, uncluttered look of contemporary decor, you will probably enjoy the understated elegance of modern window treatments.
What make these window treatments unique?
Here are some of the characteristics:
These draperies are simple. You won't find ruffles, flounces, lace, dramatic pleats, elaborate valances and volumes of fabric.
Careful planning is another vital part of contemporary window dressings. Plan for the length, usually to the floor, height (dramatic ceiling height to emphasize?), fabric color, fabric texture and method of hanging the panels.
Subtle color or dramatic statement? With modern style decor you can go either way. If your color palette includes one shade that is the 'punch' of the palette, you might decide to use that shade to emphasize and draw attention to the windows.
Or, your goal might be to create a monochromatic statement in the space, so you'll opt for a fabric that blends well with the walls and trim. There isn't a right or wrong answer here - it depends on your own taste and interpretation.
The type of rod and method of hanging the window treatments can make a huge impact on the overall statement of the windows.
From a pleated drape hung on a wood rod, to a softly flowing fabric seemingly suspended in mid-air, to a simple fabric made dramatic by the placement of the iron rod and finial...these choices and decisions are all a part of contemporary window treatment and design.
Modern, or contemporary, decor is usually interpreted as clean, crisp, uncluttered and with minimal details.
The addition of texture and softness in the window treatments, along with carefully selected artwork and accessories will complete your space beautifully.
