Add a splash of tropical-inspired luxury to any room with the Madcap Cottage Bermuda Bay fabric employed as drapery panels. After all, green is a neutral that brings the great outdoors within.
Designer Tip: Hang your curtain rod as close to the ceiling as possible to trick the eye into thinking the room is higher than it actually is.
Roman shades finish a window in a relaxed, unstructured manner that lends a casual air to a room. Pair that style with the Madcap Cottage Isleboro Eve fabric in a lightly polished cotton in a classic blue-and-white color way, and the mix is timeless and perfection.
Smith + Noble can craft exceptional cornices to top off your Roman shades. Here, a cornice in the Madcap Cottage Cove End pattern pairs wimmingly with the Madcap Cottage Windsor Park fabric used as Roman shades.
Designer Tip: Don’t get stuck trying to perfectly match your window-treatment fabric to other furnishings in a room. If, for example, you have a navy-blue sofa, tap any other blue hue in your room, and the disparate color ways will work together. So layer-in pale blue window treatments, turquoise lampshades, and teal pillows, and the eye will read the mix as absolutely harmonious.
Smith + Noble can craft window treatments for “problem” areas such as French Doors. Here’s the “before” shot.
And here’s the “after” shot of those same French doors dressed up with the Madcap Cottage Mirador Morn fabric employed as top down/bottom up shades.
Designer Tip: Every window in a room does not need to be the same fabric. For example, the small transom-style window to the right of the French doors is the Madcap Cottage Cove End lattice print that pulls the color green from the Mirador Morn
floral fabric on the shades that grace the French doors. Using the larger print floral fabric on the doors establishes this wall as the focal point of the room.
Roman shades are a great option for rooms where, say, the sofa sits flush against the windows. A before” and “after.”
The spirited “after” photo. Here, the Madcap Cottage Ditchley Park fabric adds just the right amount of dynamic energy to this room while providing plenty of function as Roman shades.
Designer Tip: Window treatments are a great way to bring prints and patterns into a room, so have some fun and don’t go for beige and boring.
