Versatile woven shades continue to fit rooms that are redecorated
Jan 27 2011
A hallmark of New York designer Sherrill Canet's style is to recreate the past with antique and vintage pieces from different eras. But recreating the past doesn't mean getting stuck in it, she told Elle Décor magazine.
A room's architecture is a starting point for choosing furnishings.
"Design should live and breathe. I don't like walking into a project that I completed years ago and find it looks exactly the same. Rooms should be refreshed occasionally," said Canet.
For a decorating assignment, she starts by examining a room's architecture to determine what furnishings will fit it best. Yet, once a client has lived with her designs for a while, she expects them to refresh the look in a variety of ways.
As Elle Décor reports, her suggestions are: "Replace throw pillows in a new splash of color, apply a lively paint finish, add lampshades in a modern shape, swap in seasonal printed slipcovers or simply rearrange the existing accessories."
When it comes to window treatments that will last through the redecoration of a room, homeowners may want to focus on classic materials and natural colors to complement a wide range of looks. Woven shades add elegance to a window with variations in both color and textures without sacrificing practicality.
