Choose Your Foundation
First, determine what main, or base, window fashion you want. For a small room, we suggest treatments that present a clean look; for a larger room, we suggest more colorful, dramatic shades. Consider your décor too—if your room has bright colors, you might consider a more neutral shade, and if you have lots of pattern throughout the space, you might want a simpler style for the treatment. Next look at some of the suggested pairings below for inspiration.
Layering Duette® Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades offer crisp lines that lend themselves to side panels or drapery pairings to create a sleek, contemporary window. With Duette® Honeycomb Shades, you’ll get a variety of benefits, including energy efficiency, numerous options for pleat sizes and colors, and the option of top-down/bottom-up operation. Complement your light or neutral shade with a darker drape; consider a patterned drapery if your shade is solid.
Layering Silhouette® Window Shadings
Complement sheer shades like Silhouette® Window Shadings with blackout drapery in your bedroom or media room. When the drapery is open, you’ll benefit from Silhouette’s beautiful light diffusion; when it’s closed you’ll get complete privacy and darkness.
Layering Vignette® Modern Roman Shades
Timeless Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer a variety of fold sizes that will bring depth and flair to your room in an elegant, sophisticated way. Add side drapery to help reduce any light gaps from the shade; it will also give you a dramatic layer that will bring visual interest to the window.
Layering Provenance® Woven Wood Shades
Provenance® Woven Wood Shades—which are made from woven reeds, grasses, and bamboo—will help you bring the outdoors in as part of your overall look. The shades organically diffuse light and bring texture to the room. Pair them with drapes of bold color or pattern to complement their look and allow you full privacy and light control when you want it.
