Bring the Rich and Vibrant Colors of Fall into Your Home
Of the four seasons, fall offers the richest and most vibrant color palette around—especially when it comes to decorating with custom window treatments. Deep reds, soft golds, and mellow oranges allow us to bring autumn's beauty into our homes, reflecting the change of the trees outside. And speaking of change, fall also ushers in the chill of winter, which means, if you plan correctly, your new décor can also be an opportunity to save on heating costs. Isn't it great when a new look can also be practical? Let's look at the latest trends for fall window treatments.
Fall Colors are in for Drapes, Panels, Cornices, and Valances!
Create a warm and beautiful new look for fall by adding drapes or panels in the latest fall colors, or updating your existing window treatment with an autumn-inspired valance or cornice. What colors are in this year? Think of a family day out at the local farm during harvest season! Lovely apple reds, deep pumpkin oranges, lush earthy browns, and golden leafy yellows are trending right now. You can add them to your home with solid-colored draperies, or weave them together with a unique patterned fabric. You can even coordinate your bedspreads and accent pillows to complement your window treatments.
Every once in a while, I like to tell my readers about deals or specials I think are particularly amazing, like this month's incredible offering for a Cordless PowerTouch upgrade. In July, I shared with you the many benefits to installing motorized drapes and blinds, as well as how affordable many brands had become as the technology has evolved. But what's better than affordable? Free, of course! When I learned of the incredible deal for a Cordless PowerTouch upgrade, I simply had to share! For the month of September only, some of the most trusted and favored brands in custom window treatments are offering a free upgrade for a motorized system with your purchase. Even roller shades are getting in on the action with a half-priced
When choosing between the variety of window treatments available, custom draperies are flexible and functional without sacrificing style or originality. Drapes are one of my most favorite treatment styles and here are just a few of the reasons why they should be yours, too!
Custom Drapes for Every Window Size and Shape
With customized draperies, there truly is a style for every window–even those that are oddly shaped or hard to fit. No window is too wide or too tall to be decorated with a custom drapery treatment that adds drama and flair. The
It may seem tempting to turn to a big box retailer for your drapery, blind and shutter needs, but there are numerous benefits to hiring a window treatment professional to help you decorate your windows. If you are updating your home with a new look, here are a few great reasons to consider calling a professional window design company.
Window Treatment Companies Provide In-Home Consultations
To get a true understanding of how your drapes or blinds will look, window treatment companies provide in-home consultations, where you can touch the fabrics and see the colors up close with your décor. Plus, a professional will
Motorized Treatments are On-Trend—and More Affordable than Ever Before
There are always new inventions on the market for making tasks around your home a little bit easier—and window treatments have not been left behind when it comes to such innovative conveniences. I am writing, of course, of motorized window blinds and drapes.
Although motorized window treatments have been around for a while now, the technology to operate them has constantly been improving, while the cost of adding them to the home has been dropping. Comfortex's PowerTouch brand (a favorite of mine), for example, offers motorized shades at affordable price points that won't break the bank, making this amazing feature accessible to even the most of decorating budgets.
