Pastels are cropping up everywhere on the fall runways as soft baby pinks and chalky blues are a few of the dominant colors, making an impressive statement in oversize, bulky coats. Just as these pale colors are the trend for autumn fashion, so, too, can you cover your windows now for a fresh look. Even though this unusual pastel palette for this upcoming season might be hard to pull off when your mood turns to gray, navy and plum and you crave a hot spiced cider or a steaming cappuccino, pastel window treatment ideas are always smart, simple and timeless. Wearing pastel confections might trip up your fashion sense, but not your home decorating fashion style.
When you choose soft colors in window treatments, many moods and accent colors can evoke comfort and a relaxed feeling to any room. A dusky blue sofa and a subtly striped armchair create an inviting space, offset by mint green drapes and shades.
Blue is the quintessential calm color that translates into good design into a living room with tall windows topped off with blue Roman shades, edged in a dynamic navy blue. Pale blue is always at home in your bedroom when you need to escape your frantic days and finish a few chapters of “Wuthering Heights” (I can never seem to get off the moors). Catherine and Heathcliff from this novel could never imagine such a beautiful room.
Sunny yellow creates a serene yet lively feeling and patterned drapes pull your attention to the daylight which we need to preserve now that the days are shorter and the long cold nights await us.
If you feel that you need to spike up the pastel look, color never disappoints. Poppy orange “pops” the muted pastel green and gives depth and makes this small bedroom appear larger.
…and lime green drapes add excitement to white mini blinds in this pink and green nook.
If you do take the plunge and splurge on a new pastel coat or blazer and you feel like a walking candy coated almond, be assured that a tastefully decorated room accented in these soft colors will always be in good taste! Pastel window treatments as a unique window treatment idea are a trend for all seasons.
