FIVE ELEMENTS OF DECORATING
As you develop your overall decorating scheme, consider the following:
1 Space determines what you have to work with in each room. To visually expand, keep the color contrast between wall and window low. To make a room feel cozier, create a high contrast. Natural light and light diffusion through window coverings create dramatic visual effects in a space.
2 Lines impact the overall feel of a room. Vertical lines add height and dignity. Horizontal lines suggest relaxation and informality. Round windows, fabric folds and soft objects lessen the harshness of a rooms lines.
3 Form is the shape or combinations of shapes of the elements in a room. If you have square windows, window treatments can lengthen them and give them a taller, more rectangular look.
4 Color determines the mood in a room. It intensifies as you increase the area of coverage. As a guide, allow your main color to occupy 75 percent of a room (including floor and wall space), with 15 to 20 percent for your secondary color and 10 percent for an accent color. Use neutral-toned window treatments in rooms where youll spend a lot of time or when you want other furnishings to make bold statements. But when you want window treatments to be the special accent or coordinating feature that pulls a room together, Hunter Douglas offers an abundance of colors, textures, sheens, and treatments to provide privacy and light control and meet your decorating needs.
