Views framed

panels are a cost effective way to get the dramatic drapery look and require less fabric and less sewing. I like to use decorative panels when using some other form of blind or shade for privacy and layer the two together.

Roman Shades are another popular style of window treatment today that will help to dress up your windows. They are especially good at visually adding height in your space. Installing a roman shade above a window frame will give the illusion that the window is much taller.

I personally like to layer my window treatments whenever I can. Opting for side panels and then some type of blind, whether Roman, Roller or Traditional Wood blinds though my favourite part of designing window treatments is selecting the fabric. Any window treatment can be made into a traditional or contemporary style depending on the type of fabric you choose. Today there are many places to find great fabric options that will offer great fresh patterns and texture. The fabric you choose will help pull the design of a room together. I always use drapery fabric as my inspiration and jumping off point for any decorating scheme. A great go to resource to look at is Maxwell Fabrics. Here you will find a vast array of styles and options perfect for any interior style as well as add in your much needed trending beautiful hardware from companies like Deco & Deco to finish the overall look.

Most people don’t like a cake without icing. A cake without icing looks naked! Window coverings in your home are the same as icing on a cake. Without window coverings a home looks oddly unfriendly. With the views unframed, the rooms will appear unfinished and cold.

window look wider, taller and bigger. They soften the cold look of a window and add warmth and texture to any space. Beyond aesthetics, drapes also provide a practical purpose. They can deliver darkness on demand and even keep your home cool in the summer and warm in winter.

Here are my designer tips on how to dress those panes of glass in style.

There are two ways to decorate with drapery:

My personal favourite for most windows is drapery. As a designer I believe drapes bring a warm aesthetic to your home, tying together the architecture of your home with the furnishings within. Drapery panels can magically make a

Fully closing drapery is where the drapes can be pulled closed across the entire window span to block light and provide privacy. Decorative side panels, on the other hand, won’t pull to cover the window but offer the illusion that they do. Side

With the right window fabric you too can create more visual interest and a luxurious feel in your home. Whatever type or style you choose, adding window treatments to your space is what elevates a nice house into a well designed home. THN

Getting the

GUEST ROOM ready for the Holidays The holidays are almost here. If you're lucky enough to have a guest room, chances are good that you'll be hosting someone there this holiday season. Of course, you want your guests to be comfortable. Here’s how to treat your guests like they’re staying at a Boutique Hotel with just enough conveniences to indulge their inner 5 class traveller but not enough space for them to move in! It’s all about the bedroom, having a nice retreat from the chaos is really what every guest craves.

create an inviting nightstand Just like at a hotel guests want a place to rest their water glass at night, place a book and even plug in their cell phone. Too often people select nightstands that are too small for the scale of their bed and often too short. It’s important that your guest can easily reach their personal items when sitting in bed without having to bend over.

Add in some festive touches and perhaps add an alarm clock and water glass and glass set. have a light for reading Unless your guest passes out from one too many glasses of mulled wine, they will likely want to read before going to sleep at night. Whether it be on an electronic device or a book. Make sure you have enough pillows and either a standard table lamp or an articulated reading light. Don’t rely on overhead lighting. You also want your guest to be able to turn that light out without stepping out of bed, just like in a fancy hotel. >>>

holidays

indulge in a comfortable mattress The one area you should never cheap out on is the mattress. The benefits and importance of a good night's sleep cannot be underestimated - you will want a well-rested guest the next morning. Look at Canadian companies like ENDY (endy.com) that offer the perfect balance of comfort and support with their foam mattresses and pillows at affordable prices that ships free directly to your door. No added hassle of going to the store, this bestselling mattress comes rolled up in box the size of a hockey bag and can be easily transported even to your cottage. No more sore backs and cranky mother-in-law!

block the light Drapery and window treatments are often overlooked all together in a guest room. A good night’s sleep can be interrupted by city lights or early sunrise and again you want your guests WELL RESTED! As a designer, I like to layer window treatments, one layer for privacy and the other for darkness. There is no one size fits all solution, but an easy option is a roller blind for privacy and fully closing blackout drapery to really block the pesky sunlight. Keep these tips in mind when designing an inviting retreat for holiday guests. Invest in quality and plan for function and your guests will be well rested and happy during their stay. Just don’t leave them too much room in the closet or they may never want to leave! Rebecca Hay, is the Principal Designer of Rebecca Hay Designs Inc.
