Simplicity meets minimalism with an emphasis on clean lines. No longer are heavy drapes with swags and jabots in style. The trend is much more tailored.
Bold patterns: You can’t go wrong with fabric that is bold and bright. Geometric, trellis and large scale florals are used to make a statement.
Roman shades: Always a favorite, you can go bold in pattern and color with this style of window treatment.
Banding: Adding a simple band around your draperies give character to your drapes without going overboard on pattern. It creates a clean and sophisticated look.
Sheers: They are taking on a more decorative look with unique interwoven materials and embossed or printed patterns.
Wider Drapes: Drapes are getting wider and longer to make windows look larger. Velvet and silk will help emphasize this rich look.
Tone on Tone: If you like a softer look, choosing a fabric that is similar to the surrounding wall color will define the window without making it a focal point.
Longer, looser pleats: Pleats are getting softer and longer to create a contemporary look.
Layering: The overall look is clean and the palette is usually consistent for both treatments. Blending colors rather than contrasting ones work best when you want to layer treatments.
Eco-friendly shades: The drive to be more earth conscious has made Eco-friendly shades popular. From grasses, sisal, reeds or bamboo, they create a unique texture.
