01 May 5 Window Dressing Trends to Transform your Room
Your windows are often one of the most beautiful features of a room, especially if your windows are particularly big or the view is particularly striking. And the way you dress them can change the mood of a room completely.
Here we’ve pulled together some of the latest trends in window dressing to give you some inspiration for your windows, whatever the room.
Whether it’s a bright colour, a jewel tone or a strong, graphic print, there’s no shying away from this bold trend. Make sure that you have a similar pattern or colour somewhere else in the room, so the window dressing doesn’t look incoherent with the rest of your decor.
If heavy luxe is your theme for the room, then velvet is the way to go. Whether you use it for blinds or for curtains, this fabric is the star of the show wherever you use it. Try not to go too overboard with it or it will become too Victorian parlour. Keep the velvet to the window but bring a similar colour into the room as an accent.
Layering your window with different textures and fabrics means that you can make a real feature of it, and that you can use the window itself in different ways. If you get it right, it can make any window look expensive – whereas an individual shade might look a little dull. Get creative with your pairings and you’ll be able to control the level of natural light that enters the room perfectly as well as looking stylish.
When it comes to playful décor, there’s nothing better than decorative embellishments. Pom-pom trim has definitely been having a moment, with it appearing on soft furnishings and in high-street fashion. So why not pop a pom-pom on a curtain or a blind? Perfect for a child’s bedroom, or just where you want to inject a bit of fun.
Another one that’s been seen on the catwalk recently, metallics is a hot topic for interiors too. Whether you love a subtle shimmer or you’re thinking all out glitter and sequins, there’s lots of fun to be had. From bronze and copper to silver and gold, keep it simple with matt black hardware for instant elegance.
