December 11, 2014 | Home & Happiness Team | Comments Off on Mix & Match Made In Heaven: Florals & Stripes
If you just can’t choose between florals or stripes, we have great news for you: you don’t have to.
Combining patterns in your home décor creates an extra level of sophistication and unity. It takes a discerning eye to create bold pattern combinations that work well together—but you don’t need to worry about that. It’s part of our job to make your home decorating projects easier, which is why we offer collections of patterned curtains that are made to blend together for a look that’s both easy to create and easy on the eyes.
The perfect example of this mix-and-match philosophy is our Hearthwood collection. The versatility of the floral and stripe patterns has made it a customer favorite. The colors are lush yet familiar (we currently offer the collection in red, laurel/olive, black and natural), and the panels can stand alone or be paired with valances. There are so many potential combinations, and since we designed it to coordinate, it’s all practically foolproof.
Here are some of the possibilities:
Achieve a more traditional look by combining either the Hearthwood stripe panels or floral panels with a layered scalloped valance, as shown here. While the same valance is used in both rooms, an entirely different feeling is created based on the panels that are chosen. In both of these eye-catching looks, the floral and stripe patterns perfectly complement each other.
If you prefer a simple approach, our Hearthwood Layered Scalloped Valance with corded trim (shown here in both black and red) can be used without curtains for a timeless, effortless look. Despite its simplicity, the valance provides a perfectly paired floral/stripe combination that you can carry throughout the room, perhaps in a throw pillow, bed skirt
or duvet cover.
Now that we’ve taken the guesswork out of mixing and matching, you can create a room that looks like a page straight from a decorator’s portfolio—without the decorator’s price tag attached.
