Nature-inspired window treatments blend the comforts of indoor living spaces with the natural beauty of rustic outdoor environments. The right combination of natural color, light, texture, and pattern can bring the allure of the outdoors directly into your home.
Nature is a colorful place. From cool blue waters to vivid ruby gemstones, fiery hot orange to cool grey stone, sunny yellows to sunset pinks, emerald green forests to bark brown—nature blooms in nearly every color!
What speaks to you? Select a nature theme that feels good and build a palette from there. Incorporate complementing shades of preferred colors throughout the entire window and room design.
Natural light is an essential design tool when seeking inspiration from nature, but not when the sun’s glare is too intense. Custom Window Fashions can help you design windows that filter natural light without blocking daytime views. For example, diffuse light beautifully and create an uplifting sunshine glow while reflecting heat with unique shading options.
We can also help you achieve more natural light with window treatments by implementing specialized window designs (including Plantation Shutters) that draw natural light into a room and reduce the need for artificial light. Many people wrongly assume that drapes will block natural light. While they can be used for sun control, they can be installed in a way that they frame the view and actually enhance it.
With motorized window treatments, you can program your shades to open at sunrise, close at sunset, and automatically adjust throughout the day to let in just the right amount of sunlight.
Texture is most pronounced when deeply contrasted by surrounding textures. Consider combinations like soft linen drapery paired with coarse woven shades and shiny metallic hardware for naturally appealing window design. Of particular relevance are Natural Woven Shades crafted from rich natural materials that fit right in with today’s warm color décor and provide the perfect look for any room.
Patterns found in nature are an interesting inspiration for fabric prints. Botanicals, animals, and everything in between makes fun statements on drapery panels especially. Be bold or subtle, both can include hints of nature.
