Beach Flip's Melissa and Mahdi created the feel of a room full of windows by adding drapery panels on two walls of this renovated living room. A wall-mounted TV can be covered by the top set of panels.
To create a tailored look in a simple, monochromatic kitchen, designer Teri Thomas chose a valance and Roman shade in the same fabric. She used a custom-printed fabric from Galbraith and Paul for both the shade and its box-pleated topper, says contractor Duane Johns of Advanced Renovations.
If you want to filter light and soften the look of your kitchen window – but don’t want anything heavy or opaque, consider using a fabric with a loose weave, such as linen, for example. Here, designer Annette English complemented the otherwise pared-down look of the space with lightly textured material from Dan Marty Fabric.
With windows this tall and dramatic, all you really need is a frame. These shutters allow the light to flood in. Place darker furniture like this glossy black table and gray chairs closer to the light (and white walls) to maintain that airy feeling.
White Kitchen With Gray and Yellow Window Treatment
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down, the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric, Prospect in Shadow,” says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces), barstools and chairs.
White French Country Kitchen With Yellow Window Treatments
When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.
Roman shades and sheer white curtains allow natural light to stream in next to this mirrored-front dresser. The knickknacks and framed mirror atop the dresser, as well as the trellis-patterned wallpaper, are nods to the bedroom's cottage style.
This coastal style living room features a bamboo shade and floral patterned curtains framing a lovely picture window revealing a beachy setting. A cottage style side table displays a quaint lamp, coral, and vintage glass bottles, lending to the coastal vibe of the space. A comfy sofa with white throw and floral and solid pillows invites guests to relax and enjoy the setting.
White walls, large windows and a vaulted ceiling make this bedroom feel light, breezy and open. Reclaimed heart pine floors offer warmth and contrast. Woven wood shades allow light to filter through while still providing shade and relief from heat.
Gorgeous White Marble Abounds in Bright, Breezy Bathroom
Beautiful white marble carries from the floor to the ceiling of this stunning bathroom, accentuating the room's interesting roofline. A window and glass-enclosed shower pair with the white marble to make the space feel bright and open.
