Soft, Neutral Palettes

Soft Neutral Palettes include neutral hues like beige, cream, taupe, gray and white. You may notice their popularity in homes because they establish a calming atmosphere in the space.

This living room is a great example of utilizing a soft neutral palette. With draperies placed higher than the arched windows, it gives the illusion of a taller room. For this space, the layered fabrics are not only aesthetically pleasing but also serve a purpose. The draperies and the roman shades paired together reduce light and increase privacy! If you are not keen on soft neutral palettes, there is another color palette that we think may be more to your liking.

Bold, Moody Palettes

Let’s say you want colors that better reflect your personality and style in your home. You may be looking for bolder hues like greens, grays, purples and reds. As you start to explore these moodier palettes, there is one thing you need to keep in mind. When using darker hues, understand when enough is enough.

Adding balance to a bold set of colors includes a more neutral paint for the walls, adding light fixtures and letting sunlight in. After the balance has been established, you can begin mixing and matching patterns and styles. You will get the moody vibes you want and the functionality that every space needs!

Where Style and Functionality Come Together

We have talked about style and lightly touched on functionality but there are so many ways that layered fabrics can effortlessly incorporate both. The different fabrics of the draperies and shades serve two different purposes but come together to give you the functionality you need. When you are in the beginning stages of selecting coverings, you need a solid foundation. In this case, it is a base shade.

Roman shades, for instance, are an excellent choice as they are easy to operate, provide privacy and control the light coming through. Once you have selected your base shade, you can move on to draperies. Draperies are energy efficient and come in a wide variety of styles. This living room showcases neutral draperies that have a soft pattern. This is a great example of where style meets functionality.
