Pleated shades fit the orderly look of a tailored-style bedroom
Jan 11 2011
One way to have a bedroom that appeals to both men and women is to take a tailored approach.
One bold color against neutrals works well in tailored-style bedrooms.
In a tailored style, the bed ensemble replaces ruffles, lace and embroidered edges with sleek, clean design that isn't so austere that it looks masculine. A bedskirt, for instance, can be straight-edged with a simple pleat at each corner.
According to RealSimple.com, the furniture in a tailored bedroom may include a small writer's desk with a cane seat wooden chair, or a simple, upholstered bench at the foot of the bed. Decorative pieces, artwork and lamp styles can be geometric, but in subdued colors to soften the look.
Pleated window shades have a crisp style that fits the orderly decorating scheme of a tailored bedroom. They stack tightly when raised to maximize an outdoor view and let in light, but can be adjusted to any length to minimize sunlight damage to furniture and fabrics. They provide the same privacy as regular shades, and come in a variety of materials, colors and finishes.
The website recommends that the main colors of a tailored bedroom be neutral with one bold color for an accent.
