As with everything in the world of interior design, the popular styles within window treatments ebb and flow. Whether you’re wondering if your shades are outdated or are shopping for new ones, seeing current styles is always interesting. Below are some current trends we are loving and expect to see more of in 2022 – some of which are new, and others that have been around and are very worthy of staying on the scene.
TREND #1: BOLD PATTERNS & COLORS
Bold colors and patterns are definitely having their moment in interior décor. Fabrics with eye-catching patterns and colors can transform otherwise simple fabric shades, roller shades, Roman shades, and draperies into a unique visual centerpiece.
The Shade Shop manufactures custom Roman shades and draperies in its Houston workroom using any fabric of your choosing – whether from the extensive selection in our showroom or any other fabric you may like – giving you endless possibilities to incorporate pattern and color into your window coverings.
One of our personal favorite patterns currently trending? The beautiful black gingham Hartmann & Forbes fabric shade (pictured above), designed by Max Humphrey.
TREND #2: MINIMALISM
On the flip side of the coin, minimalist décor continues to be very popular as well, especially when there is another focal point you want the eye to be drawn to instead – whether an amazing view or a unique art piece.
There are several options when it comes to minimalist window treatments, but by far the most popular are clean and simple roller shades (pictured above in this installation we did for Houston designer, Anne Breux), solar shades, or sheer draperies.
TREND #3: SUSTAINABLE, NATURAL, & NATURE-INSPIRED
Design-savvy people are increasingly bringing the outdoors in with shades made of sustainably sourced, natural materials (think: rattan, grass, or bamboo shades) or simply by choosing neutral, earth-inspired color palettes.
Woven wood shades are the simplest (and arguably most beautiful) way of incorporating nature into your interior design. The Shade Shop has an extensive offering of woven shades handwoven to size and made of jute, bamboo, seagrass, and other organic elements.
Pictured above is a gorgeous ProDesign Camden Natural woven shade that The Shade Shop installed for the talented Lauren Ramirez of HouseMill Design.
