With summer in the Okanagan approaching, consideration must be placed on the relationship existing between drapery panels and shades. While interior design can be considered the primary focus, like piecing together an outfit for your figure, window treatments must also acknowledge proportion and function. Beginning with the functionality of shades, the Hunter Douglas Solera Shades offer unique cellular construction while bringing a soft aesthetic feel, a great foundation piece for your window treatment. Fullness and length are considered next. And while I would love to say there is a hard and fast rule when it comes to achieving balance, the size of window and where the panels are hung are often interconnected and uniquely dependent upon the window and room design.
With experience comes confidence in knowing how much light you are willing to lose as well. With endless fabric options, the various degrees of fullness, length, and opacity can be overwhelming to the untrained eye. The Well Dressed Window suggests a classic approach to neutral elegance with floor to ceiling window draperies and shades within a neutral palette to stand the test of time of interior design trends. Hunter Douglas Solera Shades can be ordered in a wide variety of coloration, to help you replicate the breezy light designer inspired window treatments while checking all the boxes for proportion and functionality.
