A Room Without Fabric?

A Room Without Fabric? wjfigw4q3

Fabric may be used extensively to enhance interior decoration. Today’s home designs include hardwood floors instead of carpet, granite counter tops replacing old style Formica and appliances that are stainless steel instead of enameled finishes in white or black. Now look at the windows. You will find materials like woven natural shades or solar shades, shadings, shutters and wood blinds. What do floors, appliances and window fashions all have in common …they are all hard surfaces. While colors abound in these categories the predominant choices by today’s consumers remain neutral colors.

The missing elements:


Look through Window Fashion Vision magazine, or search drapery and roman shades on Pinterest. (you can search for drapery and shade styles on Pinterest at Metropolitan Window Fashions.) You will see hundreds of images that combine hard window fashions (Hunter Douglas shades and blinds) with fabric or windows with just fabric alone. Look for opportunities to bring out color and enhance the room’s appearance. If the room is loaded with hard surfaces look around the house for color in other elements of the home, art, area rugs, furniture even tableware and wall colors. Picking up on color themes can be your guide to adding a splash of color in pillows, valances and panels. We offer over 40,000 fabric choices from great sources like Duralee, Robert Allen and more.


The strongest senses in design are touch and sight – in many ways they are linked together. Just by looking at a surface you instantly know if it is a soft or a hard material. Notice when you look at fabric it is an instinct to touch it. Comparatively we all know what a wood blind feels like and we ignore it. When we talk about 2 different fabrics we often use the term “HAND” to describe how the fabric feels and how it will drape for the particular application. Fabric also adds texture; most modern elements in today’s home have a smooth texture. Fabric helps break that up by offering a different tactile experience.

Soft material also evokes feelings of comfort and warmth. A great side benefit of using fabric is its acoustic properties it will absorb sound making conversation, listening to music or watching a movie a better experience.


Most of the elements in our home have little pattern. Fabric gives you the opportunity to add an interesting visual element into the space. Rooms with lower ceilings can be enhanced with vertical patterns and stripes to make the room look larger. Adding a pattern, whether geometric or a natural pattern like a botanical, is like adding art to the window. The blinds may be great looking but it is the pattern that is visually interesting to our eyes and can become a topic of conversation.

When we see a room without fabric, we want to help. The most attractive shade will never outshine the visual appeal of a fabric panel, a great splash of color from pillows or that crowning finish of a cornice or valance. Contact us today to have one of our talented designers come to your home or office for a free decorating consultation.

The Top 5 Bedroom Design Features

The Top 5 Bedroom Design Features wjfigw4q3

Fall is in full swing. The days feel shorter, the darkness longer. Have these seasonal changes got you thinking about your bedroom design? Does the gloominess of autumn and increasing darkness make you feel like you need to spruce up your space? You’re not alone. This is a time when we’re all getting ready to cozy in for the chilly months ahead. And we all want to do that in a bedroom that feels gorgeous and design savvy. We’ve got the top five bedroom design features you need to consider when you’re ready to make changes to your home.

#1 Your Personality.

Luxury Master Bedroom

When you consider your bedroom design, the most important feature is that it speaks to your unique personality. One of the best ways to create the perfect space is to choose the colors and specific style you love. Are you most comfortable in the farmhouse style of cozy chic quilts and linens? Or do you love luxurious patterns in rich colors? Custom bedding and accents are a perfect way to achieve the look that you’ll love. With coordinated fabrics, paint colors and accents, your bedroom will be the sanctuary you’ve always wanted. Let your personality shine.

#2 Layout.

Brambleton Master Suite

The general rule, when arranging furniture in your bedroom design, is to stand in the doorway. Most of the time, you’ll want to enter the room looking at the bed on the opposite wall. While that might not be the case in every room, the most important aspect is to create a “flow” throughout the space. It shouldn’t feel disjointed and cramped–with the wrong layout, this can happen no matter the size of the space. You shouldn’t have to walk around furniture to get to other parts of your bedroom. You might have to think outside the box and try out some different arrangements to see what works best. Changing up your bedroom design can add a whole new feel to the space, and you might be surprised at what looks best.

#3 The Perfect Accent.

Contemporary Bedroom

A focal point, a dramatic statement piece…this is what can make your bedroom design look put together and polished. In bedroom design, there are a number of ways to do just that. The focal wall of your bedroom could be an accent wall of vibrant color, elegant wallpaper or textured material. You could choose a custom headboard that fits your style. Artwork can be selected to add inspiring design and color. When choosing elements of your bedroom design, adding stunning pieces that fit your style is key to creating the perfect space.

#4 Organization.

Parkwood Road Residence Master Bedroom 2

Your bedroom should be a peaceful place where you can relax. But, that means something different for everyone. Do you love to sit and read? Is your bedroom the area of your home where you spend time with a cup of coffee in the morning? Is it your getaway from the household chaos so you can pay bills and online shop? Organization is key–no matter what. Make sure you have furniture, built-ins and closet space that adds function to the bedroom design. It will help you feel refreshed to have everything in its place, and you won’t spend all of your time cleaning it up.

#5 Darkness.

features for bedroom design

How would you rate the ability for you to get quality sleep in your bedroom? Sleep allows you to be productive and happy–a good night’s sleep can help you boost immunity and reduce your stress levels. Your bedroom should be outfitted with the latest features in window treatments. Have you seen recent innovations? Room darkening fabrics can block the incoming light. A second, blackout roller shade can be added to sheer and light filtering window coverings. Lowered in place, your bedroom will be completely dark–even during the day. When raised, you can enjoy the soft glow that comes in through sheer fabrics.

Need Help with Your Bedroom Design?

That’s where we come in. Our design experts, at Metropolitan Window Fashions, can help you create the bedroom design that only dreams are made of! Whether you need advice on starting a small project, like updating upholstery, or you want someone to help you oversee the makeover of your bedroom, we’re here for you.

Bold Designs, Cool Colors: Decorating with Blue wjfigw4q3

Are you searching for inspiration for your next room makeover? The sophisticated elegance of blue should be part of your design scheme. It’s gorgeous, versatile and simply stunning. Whether you choose the depth of dark blues, or the softness of a subtle hue, bringing blue into your home will help create the inviting atmosphere you want. The popularity of shades of blue has been on the rise in the last couple of years, and now it’s one of the most sought-after colors in design. But it won’t be overdone–why? Everyone chooses the shades of blue that speak to them, which allows for a unique design experience completely dependent on preference. The pop of color decorating with blue provides will add dimension and charm without overwhelming your space. Our featured image comes from Robert Allen Fabrics–layers at the window bring blue in as the backdrop of this classic damask print for an altogether beautiful look. Take a moment for inspirational ideas for your next design project.

Add Just a Touch of Blue…

A Coastal Kitchen in Montclair

No matter the shades of blue you prefer, the color is there. Decorating with blue, even in small amounts, will offer your home the pop of color you need to finish your space. And it draws your eye. The island adds charming appeal painted in blue. The fabric roman shades are finished with blue trim along the edges, adding definition to tie in with the color scheme. And the fabric cushions? They add their own custom pattern to the space. The coordination of all of these elements create a successful finish.

Personalize It with Patterns…

Blue Bedroom

Once you bring blue into your design equation, it opens up a world of possibilities. You can mix the shades of blue, and it just works. You can also introduce patterns that you never thought would go together, and it adds character and allure. The overall ‘nautical’ theme of this bedroom makes the ocean-inspired pieces come together, while also allowing the blue stripes of the area rug to fit nicely. The botanical bedding and artwork show just how versatile patterns and prints can be once you’ve decorated with shades of blue. Another reason to decorate your bedroom in blue? This soothing shade is supposed to bring more hours of sleep at night–what’s better than that?

Design Your Own Backdrop…

Pine Library

The beauty of blue is that it pairs well with every other color. Not only that, but using blue in contrast with other colors can achieve a fabulous result. This wall of bookshelves in blue offers not only a gorgeous backdrop for the space, but it allows the vibrant orange to create a striking look. When decorating with blue, choose a blue backdrop if you want to add depth to the wall while showcasing another bold color in the space. The area rug incorporates blue, while the pattern of the rug adds dimension to the space.

Custom Home Decor: Decorate Like a Gemini

Custom Home Decor: Decorate Like a Gemini wjfigw4q3

As the month of May comes to a close, we are having a little fun celebrating all things Gemini. Within the zodiac calendar, there is no personality that meets current design trends quite like a Gemini. From contrasting character traits and unexpected charm, to their need for balance and love for entertaining, the Gemini style profile is leading the way into a fun-filled summer. Their anything-goes decor is not as haphazard as it sounds. It’s intentional and intriguing, and we can’t wait to have fun with decorating. Full of contrasting colors and prints, this season finds balance with the most unlikely pairings–and it just works. Know a gemini? Pass this on–see if they agree with the current trends!

Decorate With Blues.

Gemini is governed by the element of air, and this is important to note when choosing custom home decor. Soft blues and an environment filled with sunshine allows for a relaxed, light-hearted scene. Intentional relaxation should be a priority this summer, and you can choose design pieces that influence both quiet reflection and social interaction. As shades of blue add the perfect pop of color, you can bring in eclectic accent pieces. Known as the sign of the twins, the duality of the Gemini adds balance with decor in pairs, like the chandeliers and matching chairs. Mix up the fabric choices in your custom home decor for a gemini-perfect balance of solids and prints.  It’s an ideal space to spend a summer afternoon.

Enjoy Time With Friends.

The sign of the Gemini is all about social interaction. With summer on its way, there’s no better way to spend your time than with those people who make life fun and interesting. Making your home ‘entertainment ready’ sounds easy, but it actually takes a bit of planning. The arrangement of furniture is for seating guests is vital. With Gemini’s need for pairing, sets of chairs in twos will go a long way to help make conversation. Custom home decor like accent tables and fabric pillows lend both fashion and function–tables allow for mingling, a resting spot for a glass of wine or a favorite cocktail, and custom fabrics will allow you to bring in pops of color and comfort. The scene above shows how you can arrange  your living space for a mix of group socialization and intimate conversation.

Make It Personal.

There’s no better time than right now to find custom home decor that reflects your personality. From knick knacks to artwork, what you love should surround you. This goes for custom fabrics, as well. Like the scene above, accent pillows add style details, while the custom drapes bring a modern look in stripes of black and white. The upholstered ottomans boast color and comfort. The whole space comes together with artistic success, full of personal effects that make you feel right at home.
