This year, the hottest design trend is all about…you. Unique, personalized style has never been more popular when it comes to interior design. Consider this your invitation to unleash your imagination—create a look that you’ll love for years, or one that’s easy to update as the mood strikes.

When designing a room, don’t overlook the power of window treatments to bring that just-right element of style that ties the whole room together. Whether that means picking colors that speak to you, mixing and matching your favorite patterns, or adding layers on luxurious layers, there are plenty of opportunities to make your window treatments work for you.

Play with Color

Why stick to a single color when you have a whole palette to play with? Use the wide range of popular hues this year as your inspiration—from the ephemeral, airy lights to the vivid, popping brights, from warm, natural beiges and browns to dark, moody blues and purples. Incorporating color into your window treatments can be a major style win.

Mix and Match Patterns

They say that opposites attract, and when it comes to this year’s design trends, they couldn’t be more right. Contrast is the name of the game here. Trending patterns are classics reinvented—think geometrics in abstracted styles, animal prints in unusual colors, and florals and botanicals made bold.

Mix multiple patterns and materials for an explosion of visual interest that elevates the style of the entire room. A combination of natural materials (like woods, grasses, and metals) and soft, lush fabric drapery creates a natural-yet-refined palette that will look beautiful for years to come.

Layer, Layer, Layer

You’ve got color, you’ve got patterns—now it’s all about pulling it together with layers. Layering everything from colors to fabrics to finishes creates a visual landscape with depth and variety—an unending delight for the eyes. Create a style that’s truly your own by layering different materials, like pairing polished metals with natural materials to take an ultra-modern look in a softer direction. And don’t forget the details. Add some subdued elegance with warm metallic finishes, like luxe gold drapery hardware and accent pieces.
