Shutters for a girls bed room in Hinsdale IL!

Shutters were selected as a window treatment for this little girl’s bedroom in Hinsdale IL. With shutters there is no cord to worry about injury or an accident, it is durable and provides insulation. The shutters were the first layer, then we added side panels and a valance to personalize the room and add warmth. The valances were trimmed with self cord to give a clean  finished look.

Window treatment and bedding for a guest bedroom for a Hinsdale home!

 

Our client in Hinsdale, Illinois wanted a country-style bedroom.We have used the room you see below as a sample. The room was designed for our client who resides in Naperville, and the project was done a while ago. The fabric selections, style and colors were based on Door county style.

We have achieved the country look by using painted antique furniture. The patch work quilt and pillow shams were the clients own items and we used them as our base for the design. Mint and lime green, tangerine, and slate blue were the colors for our scheme. Using two sized checks for the body and the trim gives the valances a fresh look and a touch of whimsy. the upholstered head-board in white canvas, trimmed in the tiny checks added to the general country feel of the room. Adding pillows provides coziness that will welcome any guest!

As for our client in Hinsdale, we are in the early stages of selecting fabrics and drapery design. We will share with you the room as soon as it is done!

New trends in design 2014

New trends in design 2014!
The home decorating industry it gets influenced by the fashion industry. What you see in the fashion world as far as trends, colors and styles get adapted in the home furnishing and interior design world.

As an example:

1) we see freedom in decorating, more of an eclectic style and the trend of mixing rather than matching. Mixing of different types of woods, mix of rustic styles with ultra-modern ones.
Example using woven wood shades with silk panels.

2) The use of motorized shades and window covering. Especially windows that are high, windows that are hard to reach (over a bath tub, or over the sink in the kitchen). Also motorization is used for child and pet safety. Motorization is becoming very affordable and really easy to program and use. We carry many brands Like Hunter Douglas, Graber, Comfortex, and recently we added Serena shades by Lutron that is an excellent brand and very affordable. Take a look at the video below:

3) The use of heavy draperies is out, now we see stationary side panels, sheers over silk or velvet instead of the sheers being under the heavy draperies. Creating the hotel look in master bedrooms by using room darkening materials as the first layer the sheer draperies as a second layer.

Here Is an example:

4) New ways to use embellishments and very unique trims, braids and tassels.

5) colors with gray undertones, especially in neutrals and strong pop of colors that are clear tones as accents.

 

6)We see fabrics with birds motif:

 7) The Chevron Motif:

 

Texture is an important element in your custom drapery design!

Texture is often secondary to color and pattern when it comes to the over all design of a space or the window treatment itself in any given room. Colors and patterns usually have and immediate impact, but textures add richness to the colors. For example, the richness of deep colored velvet is due to it’s pile, the shine and iridescent quality of silk reflects it’s smoothness, and the firm weave of cottons helps the printed patterns and colors to come out crisper and stronger.

Texture usually describes the way the light plays on the surface of the fabric. That gives a message of how the material feels: its softness, smoothness, warmth, coolness, etc.

Textures have their own feel and they evoke special associations. Like chenille might be associated with warmth, cotton with comfort, or silk with being exotic.

Varying textures is important and will add interest, sophistication, and style to any space. Imagine velvet pillows with satin trim, tweed drapery panels with a contrast in cotton, or an organdy table runner with lace.

Textures might not be the first thing to think about when planing a decorating project or a design for a window treatment, but indeed is a very important design element that need not be neglected!
