When looking for new window coverings you quickly realize that trends come and go. What is trendy today may look outdated a few years down the road. However, you have a better chance of attaining true sophistication and style when you keep it simple.
Choosing the right blinds or shades for your windows can become complex and we have seen complexity go terribly wrong. Thankfully, these were not projects which we sold, but rather were projects we needed to fix or provided install services for. Keeping it simple doesn't mean keeping it boring, rather it means knowing the general look you enjoy and then pulling it together.
Additionally, keeping it simple doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate fun color into your project. It does mean, however, that you should be aware of how that color affects the feel of the room. Color is great, but once it becomes an overly complex palette, you have probably gone off the rails.
In the spirit of keeping it simple, wood and faux wood blinds are timeless. Often, subtle whites are clean and fresh and bring the sophistication of simplicity. But, if your walls or cabinets are already white, then contrast with wood grains or colors provides a simple but sophisticated pop.
You get the idea. If you can find that sweet spot between boring and complex, you might just find the sophisticated look that is uniquely found in well imagined simplicity.
