At Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark area, we know that many customers find the prospect of choosing colors and patterns to be very stressful. That’s why Hunter Douglas—the leader in window treatment innovation—has created its Design Studio, a tool that can help customers envision color pairings and make well-educated choices on materials. Even those who aren’t afraid of making such selections have found it to be a helpful jumping-off point. If you’re in the market for new window fashions, you might want to give the Design Studio a look. Read on to learn more!
Start With a Base Layer
Before you look to colors, you first need to choose the product that will go directly against the window—your base layer. You can choose from blinds, shades, and shutters in such product lines as Designer Banded Shades, Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, and more. This base layer lets you control light and helps with energy efficiency at the window. For this product, you can choose solid or textured, neutral or colored materials.
Select a Second Layer
The second layer really gets exciting because you’re choosing fabrics that add drama, depth, and style. You can find selections that will coordinate or complement what you already chose, in elements such as side panels or drapery. Remember that side panels will frame the window to add dimension, and drapery can fully cover the window to provide additional privacy and light control.
Find Tips and Suggestions in the Design Studio
Whether you want to coordinate with tone-on-tone looks for neutrals, colors, or textures or find contrasts with color or patterns, bring out an accent color in the room, to highlight a color from a patterned undertreatment, look to the suggestions from Hunter Douglas list of folio fabrics. These folios come in coordinating or complementary color sets with names such as “all about white,” “gray infinity,” “harvest comfort,” or “seaside retreat.” You can also look at what will work with the Featured Artist series, right now focused on new textiles from renowned designer Rebecca Atwood. Whatever your style, you’ll find something that will spark your fancy. Be sure to check out the Design Studio!
