Keeping your finger on the pulse is the first step toward a beautiful home interior. Whether you prefer something timeless or en vogue, exploring your options is half the fun. Here are a few trends to consider when shopping for window treatments.

Neutral Palettes

Much like biophilic design, 2023’s window treatments emphasize earth tones and subtle warmth. This ode to nature exists throughout the home, such as in BHG’s incorporation of outdoor elements. Choose between natural tones, soft pastels, and warm neutrals for a contemporary take on color.

Think of next year’s colors as an evolution of previous designs. Instead of pure white and minimalist décor, the focus has shifted to all things natural. Hues of dusty pink, earthy green, and gentle tans usher in a newfound optimism.

Natural Materials

Layered natural elements will loom large in 2023, including the use of fabrics. Window treatments like shades or draperies are set to feature linen, cotton, or silk construction. In essence, our homes reflect the desire to recharge and connect amid plush natural accents.

Textural elements are also expected to influence window treatment design. For example, organic materials like seagrass shades incorporate organic materials like seagrass shades include a tactile component. Woven wood shades are similarly top of mind for trend-conscious designers.

Layered Treatments

While layered window treatments have never gone out of style, 2023 highlights their continued popularity—select window treatments based on your room’s décor and lighting needs. For example, pair blackout blinds with decorative curtains for a restful night and a harmonious aesthetic.

Combining window treatments also leaves room for creative flair. For instance, airy materials or subtle colors lend a soft quality to any room. By contrast, darker colors or solid materials tend to be grounding. You can choose complementary window treatments to suit your home to a T.

Intricate Details

Compared to other design elements, window treatments are a relative constant. Upcoming trends break the mold in favor of intricate details and natural textures. For instance, tassels and tapes add an impish touch to classic curtains or shades. If more is more, go all in with coordinated trim on windows, linens, and more.

Edged curtains are another example of appropriate design detailing. Unlike larger accents, edging lends an understated quality to curtains or other window treatments. The technique involves adding a secondary color or design to a fabric’s edges for delicate visual appeal.

Monochromatic Décor

Coordinating curtains to décor is one thing though wall-to-wall uniformity is another. As designers will tell you, trend forecasts predict the influx of monochromatic designs, including matching window treatments. Introduce slight variations such as softer or darker hues, near-matches, or accent colors to push the envelope.

Another way to play with color is by letting your window treatments stand out completely. This works exceptionally well for bold or dark colors contrasted with white trim. Whether you’re interested in mild monochrome or a complete transformation, keep window treatments front and center.

Art Deco Revival

The Art Deco style originated in France and is widely popular across the United States. Interestingly, this century-old style draws on nature-inspired art nouveau with organic lines, detailed patterns, and an earthy color palette.

Today’s version of the Art Deco revival highlights geometric shapes, rich woods, and natural prints. Other concepts like integrated antiques or sleek materials also play a part. If you aren’t fond of bold patterns or luxurious fabrics, select a cream or beige as a softer neutral.
