Trend Alert: Power Curtains
Window treatments offer a license to experiment with vibrant pops of color, patterns, and texture throughout a space without investing in new furnishings. Changing up your window treatments to a statement making plaid or electric hue invites personality and depth. The age-old window design question of drapes versus shades is, as of late, being answered by the yard. We’ve rounded up our favorite examples of this stunning new trend. Keep scrolling to break down how to style it now.
Wall treatments allow large-scale prints to come center stage. From a floor-to-ceiling plaid to the sweeping drama of floral, opting for the high impact of an iconic pattern channels confidence and panache. Louder prints flush out a provocative new voice when paired with restrained, elegant furnishings and quiet accessories. Inviting a bold pattern into an otherwise neutral space completely changes the dynamic. We love the unexpected, irreverent punch. Go for it.
Thoughtful materiality channels a distinctive mood, so experiment with texture. Velvets and silks add a multifaceted dimension and high sheen. Blackout backing or heavier linens control light flow. A bright pop of effervescent shade acts as a focal point for the space, highlighting key architectural detail and drawing the eye upward. Hanging wall treatments high creates a harmonious, chic backdrop. Peppering accessories in matching to complementary shades throughout the space creates a singular dialogue.
The mix of energetic pattern and solid color creates visual flow within a space. The eye naturally travels to pattern. Executed properly, this look is a masterful way to highlight key furniture pieces or architectural nuances. Tailoring is essential, so hire an upholsterer you trust. Bespoke hardware and custom-cut silhouettes can also make all the difference. Add soulful detail with spirited hardware.
