THE ART OF WINDOW TREATMENT

I have discovered yet another designer full of youthful inspiration and exuberant creativity that will keep you in your seat reading post after post!

Window treatments – that oft overlooked design element – can be hugely impactful to great room design. It tends to be the last thing we think about (much to the room’s detriment!) when we plan our design. Simply put, they’re one of the best ways to help express a unique design aesthetic and punch up the room’s personality.

There are tons of reasons to consider your window treatment, but first, please consider The Golden Rule of drape placement.

DON’T:                                                                          DO:

41813Drapes

These two windows are exactly the same size, but the window on the right looks much larger. This, my friends is the secret to hanging draperies. Always, always, hang your drapes to the ceiling! Where possible, extend the drapes wider horizontally. This will make so much difference folks! Just say no to bad drape placement.

So, what are the advantages of a great window treatment?

EXUBERANT WITH DETAIL AND COLOR

This title, descriptive words from her own web site, sums up the delightful design style of 

Mayme Baker Studio.  I recently became aware of  this sassy and sophisticated  interior designer via

The French Tangerine  (yet another source of fantastic inspiration!)

Using her own words….

“Compelling yet calming….”

“Layered and  lovely in spirit….”

“Appearing spontaneous…..”

“…effortless and collected.”

BUFFALOS AREN’T PLAID!

I know!  Old joke!  But you have to admit, it is an odd word combination to describe such a popular and adored  print in the design industry.  We all love it though and my favorite combination is blue and white!

Blue is such a popular color this Spring 2014 and

paired with white, it is superbly fresh and friendly!

It lends itself to a multitude of design options….

Always making a happy statement!

In whatever application, it is sure to

compliment many colors….

and many décor styles!
