How To Add Color With Window Treatments

Just because color trends ebb and flow, it isn’t a reason to ban them from your home all together. A home shielded in neutral colors may feel calming in today’s busy world, but it can be boring. Color has a remarkable transformative effect on us. Use it to your advantage. Whether intended as a form of self-expression to show off your personality or to create a specific feeling in certain rooms, color is a powerful tool.

If the thought of painting your walls or buying expensive furniture gives you a migrane, consider simply adding a new window treatment to bring in colorful style. In some tone or shade, all colors are on trend at some point. Don’t let the decorator of the moment sway your personal taste. As I’ve mentioned before, window treatments can easily change the look and feel of a room, especially when a vibrant hue is chosen.

Rally With Red

Are you a passionate soul? Is it hard for your thoughts to remain quietly in your head? Are you stunning when you’re happy and do your loved ones clear your path when you’re angry? If so, then red is for you! Red is an ideal color for window treatments because it is almost too powerful of a hue to cover an entire wall. A pair of red draperies never fails to make a confident statement or bright cell shades or crimson roman shades climbing down your windows are stunning.

Oh Yes, Orange

Orange can range from bright, fresh and fun to a sophisticated, seasoned copper hue. Lively and stimulating, orange is sure to pep up your most stale room. Unfortunately, this is one of the most underused colors in interiors, but that can be easily changed with a pair of bold tangerine drapery panels or sprightly patterned roller shades or a decorative valance.

Grounded By Green

So versatile, that many consider it a neutral, green is symbolic of renewal and nature. What makes it so universally appealing is that it provides a feeling of connection to the outside environment. A sense of balance and well-being can be reached by being surrounded by green.

Pretty In Pink

Pink represents compassion and can make a space feel non-threatening and nurturing. Pink prompts a calming feeling and instills a sense of comfort in a room. Bright pink adds a level of sophistication and power, but can be surprisingly fresh if applied correctly.
