Summertime is rolling around the corner and maybe it’s time to update your windows for the approaching season.
DRAPERY is more than just functional, it makes a statement in a room. Gone are the days of heavy, formal drapery. We love using beautiful, airy fabrics to liven up a room. If you don’t need drapery for privacy, using sheer fabrics that are light and airy filters natural light in an interesting way.
SHADES are also are great way to go. Rethink the standard white roman shade. Here, these window treatments are fun to use and give the room a sophisticated look.
BLINDS are highly effective in blocking out the excess light, especially at sunset and sunrise, depending on your exposure. Mecho Shades come in a variety of weaves, ranging from black-out to fairly sheer. We love using these cordless options for children’s rooms. Natural grasses and bamboo blinds add texture and filter light in an interesting way.
SHUTTERS are are a great way tailor a space neatly. We always recommend going for the ‘real thing’: painted or natural wood. They work well in many environments from coastal to farmhouse, without being too theme-y. They are very effective in blocking the intense sun during the summer months. Going with a softer color choice will help to light up the space and create a nice summer feel to your home.
Whatever style works for your home, make sure to enjoy the view!
