Matching window covering hues to wall color opens up a room
Nov 16 2011
Taking a monochromatic approach to color selection in a home's décor can give the illusion of more space in small rooms.
A monochromatic color scheme expands the look of a room.
This decorating trick can be used when selecting window treatments - including hardware, such as rods and curtain rings - in the same color as the adjoining walls. The effect is a sweeping view unbroken by changes in hues that would otherwise break up the look, according to House Beautiful magazine.
Blinds Chalet has a line of soft sheer shades in attractive neutral colors that are ideal choices to achieve this look. Right now, light-filtering horizontal sheer shades can be bought with a $25 rebate if purchased by December 17. Up to 10 shades qualify for the savings.
In small bathrooms or half-bath powder rooms, the same effect can be achieved by using a shower curtain in a monochromatic color scheme with existing wall paint or window treatments.
The magazine advises taking this approach in bedrooms by using a stylish bed ensemble that reflects the main wall color. Choosing fabrics with some texture raises them slightly from the background color without disrupting the overall look.
