Spring is just around the corner and we’re all excited to look out the window and see plush greens, beautiful flowers and maybe even a little sunlight here in western, PA! Windows serve more than just a functional purpose in the home; they are a gateway that connects you to natural beauty and for that reason, windows should be celebrated. The concept of celebrating windows sounds funny, but what we really mean is that since windows play such an important role in your home, they deserve to be accessorized. As you look for new ways and ideas to accessorize your windows this Spring, keep these current decorating trends in mind:
1. Large Windows: The trend of larger windows in today’s new homes is becoming more popular because homeowners are looking to illuminate their homes with natural light. Thanks to improved insulation, consumers can enjoy this eco-friendly option as well as energy efficiency. When it comes to versatile window treatments for larger windows, consider Hunter Douglas’ new Vignette® Traversed™ with Vertiglide™ Modern Roman Shades. This elegant treatment offers a vertical solution for expansive windows and doors while providing a perfect balance of sunlight and energy efficiency.
2. Less is More: Talk about the trend of simple design. Homeowners are not using heavy layers of drapery currently. Simple designs let essential beauty shine through. That’s certainly true for Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shadings, which feature soft fabric vanes suspended between two sheers, diffusing softened light deep into a room. Taking simplicity to a new level, these shadings are now available with the innovative LiteRise® of a hand. And with no cords, they also offer enhanced child and pet safety.
3. Color of the Year: The color of the year for 2014 features a bold choice you’ll love: Dazzling Blue. This color looks modern when mixed with white details, warm pewter, and mercury glass accessories. Try adding this color into your home with many of the Hunter Douglas window fashions that offer beautiful blues such as our Celebrity®aluminum blinds in Blue Ridge.
