Take your windows from satisfactory to sensational
Go beyond builder-grade vinyl blinds and your mother’s hand-me-down curtains. Step up your window treatments to add to the aesthetic appeal of your Dallas apartment. Here are a few cool ways to block out the hot sun while making your room a bit more enticing.
If you’re going to do rose-printed curtains, this is the right way to do it. Printed curtains may steal the show from any room when done improperly. Using a pastel on a white background mutes the pattern just enough for it to not become overwhelming while maintaining its visual interest.
Short on fabric but big on style, Roman shades are a fun way to accentuate a window. They work perfectly for this home office; traditional curtains would reduce the available space for the office equipment. Without extra fabric hanging around, there is plenty of floor space for furniture. A simple pattern adds a pop of color.
There is something remarkably GQ about this room, something that makes me think of the Dos Equis spokesman and a few really fine cigars. Wine-colored window dressings make the room feel sensual and inviting. By completely covering the windows, you can create the sensation of a VIP lounge in your home.
For a room that feels welcoming and connected with nature, bring the beauty of the outdoors to your interior window treatments. Reed, bamboo, and wood blinds are perfect for warming up a space, protecting your home from the coldness of plastic or vinyl.
