- Consistency of Formality.
That sounds like such an official term- consistency of formality. That is my way of saying that white wood blinds are too informal for Duioni Silk. I would combine silk with a nice woven shade, Roman shades, or perhaps shutters- something more formal- but there is such a low level of formality to a two inch wood blind- I would not pair it with silk. Keep the wood blinds and use a less formal fabric, or pair the silk with a more formal shade.
2. Tell me Laura- if someone asked you what color your room is- how would you answer? It can be shades of neutral- you don't have to have rainbow colors- but I am only seeing one shade- dark brown- and I spied a little red on a pillow. You need more of a commitment to a color pallet. Adding drapes is a good place to solidify this. Consider a pattern that will bring in the different colors you want to use. Even if these colors are shades of neutral that vary from the light in your walls to the dark in your furniture- great- but let's pull them together. It looks to me like you are afraid of commitment. Not entirely- I do see a husband in there on the sofa- but afraid of color commitment.
3. You will notice that the photos I included in this post have rows of windows close together. The question becomes- "Do I add panels between each window- or just on the sides? How many? How high?" To which I answer- there is more than one good way to dress the windows. If you have a horrible view- an ugly neighbor's RV- a swamp- something you don't really want to see- add panels between each window. Make it more about the window treatments and less about the view. Most of the time- that is more panels than I would do when the windows are so very close together- add eight more inches between windows- and my advice changes- but I would use either two or four panels. Four panels would be hung like you see below. Nice and high- on the ends of the collections of windows.
- Consistency of formality
- Commit to a color pallet
- Consider two or four panels-
(hang them high. When they are hung lower- they are really more for just the window they are next to- we want these treatments to say- "I am framing all of the windows.")
