Decorating Tips for Your Entire Home
Spruce up dark, windowless corners by hanging a large, colorful painting or photograph in the space.
To add a touch of luxury and comfort to your living room, consider an overstuffed love seat or chair accented with an abundance of pillows and a fringed throw.
Smooth, matte-finished walls contrast nicely with noticeably textured upholstery.
Neutral colors are elegant and easy, but they can sometimes be a bit too subtle. Vary the surfaces and shapes in a room, from furnishings to floor coverings to accessories, and make a neutral color scheme interesting.
For utmost safety in a child’s room, be sure to outfit the windows with coverings equipped with special safety features — most importantly, features that eliminate dangling cords.
A true guest room should be an “escape” for your guests. Consider decorative themes-such as African, Japanese or Brazilian-to stir your visitors’ imaginations and wanderlust.
When outfitting a bedroom with window treatments look for room-darkening fabrics, tight vane closure, and hidden rout holes. All will contribute to keeping out unwanted light.
A short window can be made to appear taller with the addition of an above-the-frame valance in combination with floor-length sheers.
When outfitting your bathroom with window treatments be sure to look for those capable of withstanding extra-humid conditions.
The Outside Looking In
Seen from the exterior of your house, no single window should stand out. Nor should drapery, blind or shade colors clash with the façade. Your window fashions should go virtually unnoticed from the outside yet contribute to the architectural character of your house.
