Stylish Design Tips for Today’s Homes
Contemplating a new look for your windows this new year? Be it for privacy, light blocking, heat control or soundproofing, Atlanta Custom Interiors’ award-winning certified custom window treatment expert, Stacie Kennedy, imparts her know-how on the latest up-to-date styles for 2018.
Stacie started out as a fashion merchandising major, a degree that made sense at the time, considering her long-standing relationship with fabrics dating back to her sewing experience since childhood. She daringly left the corporate world behind years ago to work for herself doing what she loves most and knows best: dressing windows and furniture.
Dining and living rooms featured are from Vinings homeowner Jill Langella.
“I don’t do fashions for people; I do fashions for windows.”
- Drapes remain very popular, whether stationary or functional; they are the most decorative layer, either bringing subtlety to soften a room or making a bold statement.
- + Solar Shades are big now; blocking light and giving UV sun protection in a variety of fabrics. Woven Wood Shades made of natural fibers provide a casual and rustic look.
- + Incorporate rustic elements mixed with traditional or contemporary styles.
- + Treated fabrics are made to be durable, stain resistant and even repellent. It is an investment to have custom work done, so materials must last while looking new.
You can also order custom bedding and throw pillows to match your existing furniture and rugs; custom-sized headboards; and bring over that old handed-down-from-Nana sofa, chair or ottoman to be reupholstered and updated.
As Stacie points out, “Quality furniture is worth saving. Furniture isn’t made like it used to be.”
