Springtime Decorating: Embrace Your Style

Springtime Decorating: Embrace Your Style wjfigw4q3

What’s your favorite part of spring? Is it the gorgeous weather? The fresh air? How about the lovely reminder that the dreary days of winter are coming to an end? Spring feels like a new beginning–a chance to start again. If you’re like us, you love springtime decorating. Let this new season be a fresh start for your home. There are so many ways to rejuvenate your surroundings. That blank canvas will also bring a feeling of renewed energy to your life. And, the best part is, it’s simple! Take a look at some of our ideas for springtime decorating.

Springtime Window Treatments


#1 Start Neutral

Your springtime decorating may not usually consist of neutral colors. You probably go for bright hues or pastels. This season, one of the hottest colors is a cross between two of the design world’s favorite neutrals: Beige and Gray. It’s called “greige,” and it’s the perfect color for the start of a new season.  Add a touch of contemporary design while you’re springtime decorating. Have you seen Poised Taupe? Warm, inviting, and easy to match–you will fall in love with the simplicity of this color.

#2 Flower Power

springtime decorating florals

Spring brings in beautiful colors, which is great for springtime decorating. The flowers, especially, offer a certain beauty to our outdoors. Why not bring it inside? The soft pop of color offered by lilacs, tulips, and daffodils will revitalize your home. Create a centerpiece for your dining room table. Keep a small arrangement on your nightstand. Use silk flowers to craft a colorful wreath for your front door. When it comes to springtime decorating, it’s all about the refreshing hues. This year’s color of the year can bring the brilliant ‘pop’ of color you’re looking for. Take a look at how to use Greenery in your springtime decorating.

#3 Environment Control

springtime decorating dual shades

Take a look at your windows. Are they bare? If so, your priority for springtime decorating should be to take control of your environment. Windows are a source of light, but they also can bring in too much light–meaning, your furniture is at risk of damage from the UV rays, your rooms may be filled with an uncomfortable glare (or heat as summer approaches), and you have little to no privacy. Don’t suffer through these issues. Instead, find the right window treatments. You’ll gain control over your space’s ambiance and comfort while adding designer style.

#4 De-Clutter Your Rooms

springtime decorating pleated shades

Springtime decorating means spring cleaning! It may not sound like fun, but you will feel amazing afterwards. What rooms in your home do you use the most? Start there. Take a weekend to go through your belongings, and ask yourself, “Have I used this recently? Do I absolutely need this?” If the answer is no, it’s probably safe to get rid of! Minimalist design is the “in” thing right now, so while you’re cleaning out your space, you’ll also be adding immense style.

#5 Incorporate What You Love with Springtime Decorating

You aren’t going to truly love your springtime decorating until you start incorporating the designs that you love. There are always new trends that you may or may not be drawn to. You don’t always have to keep up with the latest designs. Instead, consider the looks that you keep going back to. What are your Pinterest boards full of? What pages do you have marked in your design magazine? Use these ideas in your springtime decorating! Are you ready to get started? We’re here to help you along the way. Contact our team at Metropolitan Window Fashions for designer advice and ideas.

Choosing Custom Window Treatments – Let’s Get Started!

Choosing Custom Window Treatments – Let’s Get Started! wjfigw4q3

Choosing custom draperies for your home is an exciting project and as any decorator will tell you, your window treatments really make a room. Often times, this is the last design element added to a room, but the one with the most impact. Custom draperies mean that a homeowner’s choices are limitless when it comes to styles, fabrics, colors and embellishments. This is where a professional decorator is needed, and we here at Metropolitan Window Fashions offer our design service with experienced decorating professionals than will make this process not only educational, but fun and enjoyable! If you are looking for custom draperies, here is some advice to help you understand the process and give you some insight on design options that you need to ponder when choosing custom draperies.

Tips for Custom Window Treatments

  • Style of a Room – This is probably one the first questions one of our design professionals will ask, what is your style? Traditional rooms, may require more ornate styles and fabrics as well as plenty of embellishments. Types of styles for your window treatments could also include top treatment options such as swags with trims. Traditional patterns and fabrics would also be considered including damasks, silks and jacquards. A more transitional or modern style would keep the styles of fabrics and styles simpler and cleaner, and less pattern . Linens and textures work well in spaces that have a minimalistic style.
  • Colors and Patterns – Color and pattern can be a challenge when choosing custom draperies, but this is where a professional can definitely help! A room tends to look more interesting when there are 3 patterns in a room. Usually, the largest patterns are on the larger pieces, which can include the rugs and a sofa. Your window treatments, if you are looking to include a pattern, maybe a medium sized pattern or even a smaller pattern that coordinates. When you are mixing patterns, it’s always best to stay in the same color scheme. Colors are fun to incorporate in a room, but choosing a particular color will have different effects. You can contrast your colors by choosing something that is dramatically different than your wall, or you can keep a monochromatic color scheme, but keeping within the tones of the wall, which makes for a softer transition.
  • Types of Fabrics – We discussed particular fabrics that would work well with traditional, transitional or modern rooms, but let’s delve a little further. Fabrics are made up of many different types of fiber that affects the way it drapes and durability. Cottons and Cotton blends are great for drapes, they are soft and provide a great “hand” . Silks can also drape well, but faux silks drape better and are more durable. Homeowner’s need to be aware that a silk cannot be steamed, and that wrinkles and slubs are the natural and part of the beauty of the fabrics. If a more pressed look is for you, we would recommend a faux silk which is a poly blend, it drapes beautifully, does not have a wrinkle and is more durable than silk. Linens do not drape well and cannot be steamed. They are a stiffer fabric and will wrinkle easily. Think of a linen jacket. However, there are faux linens, that are a blend of linen and cotton, or polyesters that drape beautifully and give you that linen look. These faux linens come in a variety of colors and styles, including embroidered styles. Our decorators are using more of these types of fabrics and they are definitely on trend.

The Ultimate UPgrade for Your Custom Window Treatments: Top Down, Bottom Up

The Ultimate UPgrade for Your Custom Window Treatments: Top Down, Bottom Up wjfigw4q3

Summer’s sunshine continues even with the arrival of fall–amazing! Have your days been a little brighter with those gorgeous rays streaming in through your windows, or is the blinding glare and intense heat taking a toll on your mood? How about the view? Are you able to enjoy it, or do you have to cover it up to stay comfortable? Especially with autumn’s arrival, you’ll want as much cheery sunshine flowing into your rooms as possible. Custom window treatments give you unmatched versatility and control. Top-down, bottom-up window coverings are an outstanding custom choice. With them, you’ll always have the right amount of light and privacy while maintaining the perfect temperature inside your home. See how top-down, bottom-up custom window treatments can bring the ultimate atmosphere into your home and your life–and be sure to check out the tremendous savings available with our Season of Style.

Ideas for Custom Window Treatments

The Right Light and View

custom window treatments NYC

Believe it or not, it’s possible to enjoy natural light and natural views. With your current window shades, you might find yourself covering up both and turning on inside lights or constantly squinting. Glare is a frustratingly real problem–especially if you have floor-to-ceiling windows. It can be impossible to see the beauty that lives just outside your windows and even the screens of your favorite devices inside your home. Get rid of glare and frustration with custom window treatments. Fit just for your home and style, top-down, bottom-up window coverings give you the flexibility to open a section at the top or bottom and leave the rest of your window covered, or combine the two and cover only a part in the middle. Open them all the way, or close them tight. The positioning possibilities are endless–which makes them perfect for your specific lighting needs. It’s easy to soften or block direct or glaring rays while still letting in natural ambient light–and the landscape–when you want. Upgrade your life with mood-boosting daylighting, easy-to-see screens, and beautiful outdoor views made possible by top-down, bottom-up custom window treatments.

The Right Temperature

Natural light also influences the temperature inside your home. With cool temperatures fast approaching, you’ll be glad to know that sunlight is a valuable resource for heating your home. Yet, you might have found this summer that 80° and sunny outside can easily mean 110° and scorching inside. So, how do you reap the benefits of sunlight in the winter while tempering its harmful effects in the summer? With custom window treatments, of course! When the summer sun’s out, you can position top-down, bottom-up shades to keep sizzling rays at bay. Then, in the winter, you can let those warming beams in. Plus, cell-within-cell technology creates pockets of air to provide insulation at the window. This blocks the waves of heat and cold that seem to flow through your window panes, which helps to maintain a consistent and comfortable temperature throughout your home. Top-down, bottom-up custom window treatments will provide sweet relief for you, your air conditioner, your furnace, and your wallet.

The Right Amount of Privacy

custom window treatments NYC
Your windows are elegant features in your home. Large expanses of glass can be a stunning centerpiece in any room, but do they leave you feeling a little exposed? Having privacy in your home is important, and, while you might love the view out of your windows, there are times you want to limit the view in. Top-down, bottom-up custom window treatments let you create the perfect amount of privacy for every room and every occasion. So, whether you’re enjoying the skyline or beautiful landscaping around your home–at a dinner party or snuggling up on the couch in your PJs–you can count on feeling comfortable. With custom window treatments, you can relish in the rewards of privacy control!

The Right Time

Now’s the time to enjoy the versatility and control that custom window treatments can offer you. And it’s the best time of the year with our Season of Style event. Top-down, bottom-up window coverings are the ultimate custom option. Tailored to fit the various shapes and sizes of your windows and with colors and textures that complement your decor, they’ll turn your home into the stylish, beautifully lit, energy-efficient, and private haven you’ve always wanted. We’d love to help you upgrade your home and life with custom window treatments.

The Perfect Mix of Industrial Softness

Morrison living room/dining room, Interior Design Toronto

The sharp look of industrial elements in home design offers modern appeal. But what to do about softening up the space and making it feel like home? Purple is one of the most popular color accents this year. It combines the art of design with unique style. Adding purple accents allows you to soften the mood of the space, as well as the elements. Think meditation and balance, and you have the perfect vision of what purple can do for you home. Contrast is such a huge part of design these days, and adding the softness of purple to industrial design is ideal.


The Ideal Pairing of Colors


Purple has the ability to transcend design rules and just go with everything. It commands the room without feeling overwhelming, but it does add a rich, luxurious feel to the space. No matter your personal style, purple can pair with your home design and add just the right pop of color. This is what makes it today’s most popular color. It takes the fabulous look you already have going on, and it revs it up. It sets the tone and makes the announcement, “Now this space is finished.” And it does it so well.


The Contemporary Foundation

Dining Room

These days, when someone is looking to add a one-of-a-kind vibe to their home, they look to color. As today’s most popular color, shades of purple have stepped in to replace the foundational colors.

Save On Your Energy Bills with 3 Considerations

Save On Your Energy Bills with 3 Considerations wjfigw4q3

Are you enjoying your summer? The sunshine and blue skies we’ve been having are what we look forward to all winter long, but the heat sure is on this year. Whew! With temperatures climbing into the 90s and intense sunshine on top of that, it’s probably taking a toll on your home and your energy bills. Are you, your air conditioner, and your wallet ready for some sweet relief? Window coverings can turn your home from sweltering  to comfortable–like a summertime oasis. Here are three things to consider as you choose window coverings to help you save on your energy bills this summer–and all year long.

Save with Features for Location

save on your energy bills NYCThe direction your windows face makes all the difference when it comes to how sunshine interacts with your home. North and south facing windows won’t get the intense direct rays that east and west facing windows do. Choosing window coverings that offer the right features for the location of your windows can really help you to save on your energy bills. For east and west facing windows, insulation at the window is key, and you’ll often want ways to reduce glare and draw in light with north and south facing windows. Top down bottom up operation is great for that. Oftentimes you need completely different features for the window shades in your living room as compared to those in your bedroom. That’s why Hunter Douglas offers fabrics, materials, and textures that work well with many window covering styles. You get all the beauty and all the benefits! By carefully selecting the features of your window shades, you can keep the summer sun’s heat from plaguing your home–and your energy bills–while still enjoying the benefits of natural light, privacy, and view-through.

Save with Automation

save on your energy bills NYC

If you want to experience serious energy savings, then we have two words for you: PowerView motorization. With motorized shades, you set the scenes along with the schedule, and it takes care of the rest. PowerView adjusts your window shades automatically throughout the day, so your home’s atmosphere is always ideal. As the sun moves, so do your shades. In fact, you can even program PowerView to adjust your window coverings based on your ever-changing local sunrise and sunset times. With an automatic schedule, intense sun doesn’t get a chance to heat up your home regardless of whether you’re there or not. And when you are away, you can control your shades at the touch of a button with the PowerView App from your favorite device! Convenience, comfort, and consistency…PowerView is a sure way to save on your energy bills and upgrade your lifestyle.

Save with Energy-Efficiency

save on your energy bills NYCIf your air conditioner is running non-stop on hot days, or if you’re sacrificing your comfort to cut costs, it’s time for a better solution. Obviously if you’re looking to save on your energy bills, you want to increase the energy-efficiency of your home. But, how? Window shades are one of the best ways to do that. Bare windows magnify the sun and heat–which means it can be hotter inside your home than out! Energy-efficient window coverings have the ability to insulate your home, so they help maintain a consistent temperature. That means your air conditioner doesn’t need to work as hard, and that translates into both comfort and savings for you! Duette shades are the industry leader when it comes to energy-efficiency. Their cell-within-cell structure provides pockets of air that protect your home from the elements just outside your windows. It’s no wonder why they’ve earned the highest ranking.

Start to Save On Your Energy Bills…

Don’t spend another gorgeous summer day dreading the effects of the sun on your home and wallet. It’s time to save on your energy bills with window coverings that are just right for your unique spaces. On top of increasing energy-efficiency, they’ll also add style, sophistication, and the benefits of light control and privacy. So, contact us today, at Metropolitan Window Fashions, for a free, in-home consultation.
