Window Treatments Part 1 - Color and Contrast


Kelly Hoppen - Elle Decor website

Beautiful window treatments can add so much to a space.  Drama, color, pattern, softness.  See how the window treatments below all make a significant design statement in each environment. They've all been used to add color to an otherwise white space.

The woven woods in this project above add warmth and a casual vibe to the space.

Contrasting, colorful window treatments can liven up a space and add so much personality to a room.  Do you have any in your home?

These are all perfect examples of how window treatments can take a room to the next level. I tried picturing a few of these spaces without their treatments and they just weren't quite as spectacular.

Carla,
As always, beautiful images. I forget about how much I love lavender.
I hope that you are having a great day.
