Dark furnishings can create a modern and sophisticated look in your living room, but oftentimes if you go too heavy with the style, your space may not be as warm and cozy as it could be. One of the easiest ways to perk up your living area is to add some medium or light-colored window treatments to accent your furniture, according to The Kansas City Star.

Wood blinds and bamboo woven wood shades will add a natural aesthetic to your space that will be fashionable for years to come. Some simple tan draperies will provide additional insulation for your windows and will look perfect during any season.

If you'd like to add some more texture to your windows, fabric shades such as roman shades offer a timeless look that's hard to match. These are available in many colors and styles, which will give you more freedom with your decorating scheme.

Energy-efficiency is a huge concern for many homeowners, so if you're looking to reduce the size of your energy bills and to spruce up your interior design, honeycomb cellular shades are the best choice. They are available in light-filtering and blackout varieties and will help control air leakage in your home.
