Ideas for Tall Windows

 

blue-3

 

 

You decided on the house with the big, beautiful, panoramic windows. But now what? The windows are dramatic and provide amazing views but can be somewhat of a challenge when it comes to buying custom curtains or drapes. If you visit the typical retailers you are probably not going to find drapery that will cover extra long windows. Most retailers won’t have drapes that go beyond 120 inches. And that’s where DrapeStyle comes in. Everything we make is custom made, so yes, we can make drapes for your windows.           Any width.  Any length. Any fabric.

 

Do your tall windows offer an incredible view that you don’t want to obstruct? Consider adding sheers to your windows.  DrapeStyle carries sheers in several different colors, style and fabrics so you are sure to find one that works for you. Sheers can add drama and softness to a room, without breaking the bank. Whether you are looking for a classic sheer or something more modern, DrapeStyle has plenty of reasonably priced sheers to choose from.

Another option for adding a little color and pattern to your windows, would be decorative panels. Drapes that do not open and close, they instead are stationary and provide much needed color to the walls.

Pillow Arranging Made Easy

Thinking about adding a pop of color to your sofa?  Don’t know where to start when selecting pillows?  To some, pillow arranging can be stressful.  But it doesn’t have to be!

As you stroll down the pillow aisles of the home decor stores, you see all the beautiful colors and styles of pillows that you have to have!  But, putting a great grouping of pillows together on a sofa can sometimes be a different story.  A sofa is like a blank canvas and pillows are the pops of color, design and texture you put on it.  Getting it right can sometimes be difficult!

GuideHere are a few hints to get you started.  Start with a couple of anchor pillow, a larger sized pillow for the outside of the sofa.  Moving towards the center, start to select smaller sized pillows, alternating patterns and fabrics.

Pull out colors from around the room to really tie the look together.  Odd numbers are more appealing, so as you work towards the center of the sofa, end with one fun decorative pillow.

Get creative!  Try using a few patterns.  As long as they are in the same color family, they will work.

TropicalUse pillows to make a statement!  If you purchase pillow covers and down inserts you can change the pillow covers seasonally.  You can store the covers neatly in a drawer and use the inserts over and over again!

To maintain the look of your pillows, give your pillows a good shake and punch in the sides to redistribute the feathers in the insert.  Flat pillows look old and tired.

Suburban Zen-Asian Inspired Spaces

From traditional to contemporary, Asian influences can be seen in all types of spaces, all over the world.  Asian inspired interiors evoke an image of serenity and tranquil calm.  Balance is often the key defining aspect of an Asian theme.

You need the right harmony of not just colors but also different textures and elements that surround you.  Think about adding glass partitions, natural stone decorations, wooden floors, bamboo blinds and a few organic textures.  Clean lines, neutral hues, indoors and out.  Balance and harmony create a serene space in these neutral colors.

A home with Asian influences can be traditional or contemporary.  Traditional Chinese decor is far more opulent, expansive and grand with regal reds, lavish gold, captivating jade and plush purple tones.  Selecting the right accessories and window treatments can completely change the mood and feel of the room.  DrapeStyle carries Vern Yip fabrics that can be made into Pillows, Roman Shades and Drapes.
