Spring/Summer 2018 Design Trends to Watch For

As New England (finally!) emerges from what felt like an eternal winter, it’s the perfect time to revisit your decorating. Now that the sun’s out, maybe it’s time to redecorate that kitchen like you’d always planned? Or redo that office that has been a storage closet for the last couple months? If you know what you want to do, but you’re not sure where to start, check out a few of these interior design trends using window treatments that we’re watching for Spring/Summer 2018!

Bold Pops of Color

Even a few pops of color can go a long way to completely transform a room and can reflect a strong sense of personal style. Shades are a great feature of a room where you can play with color. Many of the manufacturers we carry have shade fabrics in hundreds of different colors–so if you want a dramatic flair of bright orange, you can get exactly what you’re looking for. Even if “bold” colors aren’t your thing, we can show you different window shades in (almost!) every color.

Creative Office Spaces

Who wants to sit in a boring, monochrome office anymore? Office spaces should be about positivity, empowerment, and motivation! There are many ways to liven up an office to create a space that boosts your mindset. Making sure your space has the proper amount of natural light is a great place to start. Automated shades are a great fit for an office! By pairing convenience with style, you can stay on the work grind and your shades will lower automatically to adjust to the sunlight without disrupting your workflow.

Texture

Textured items, like fringe, rattan, or wicker, are definitely in the interior design spotlight at the moment. Like bold colors, texture can demonstrate a strong style choice and can add another layer of interest and unity in your space. Certain types of shades we offer, such as Honeycomb/Cellular Shades or Roman Shades, can be an excellent textured complement to your space.

Tropical

Tropical prints were on the rise last year and have since become an even bigger trend. If you’re looking to get out of the winter gloom, these tropical prints are a great way to transition into the warm season! Natural light is critical to creating an atmosphere of tranquility, and customizing your shades is a great way to complement these tropical overtones.

Many of these design trends can be paired together–a bold, creative workspace, a tropical and colorful living room–to create exciting new spaces in your home, perfectly in tune with the nice weather. Shades contribute more to a space than many think–let our design experts show you!
