Elevate your unique style with layering

Just as a favorite outfit benefits from stylish layerings such as adding a jacket, scarf, and jewelry, so your windows can be dressed up with layers.  If this is a new concept for you, here is a picture tutorial to illustrate how layering can “dress up” the look of a room.

  • Starting with motorized cellular shades in a unique print to add visual interest with various shades of grey, you get complete privacy when these shades are closed.
  • Adding floor-to-ceiling drapery panels in warm contrast to the grey window shades. The soft drapery fabric adds softness to the hard lines and creates a very high-end finished look that is very cohesive with the room’s furnishings.
  • Hanging drapery from same color hardware placed at the ceiling line emphasizes room height and creates architectural elements to add visual interest to an otherwise flat surface.
