Customizing Window Treatments for Shabby Chic Decor

Shabby chic décor rose to popularity in the 1980s with a welcoming style that combines the cozy feel of cottage style with elements of glamor and vintage style. The result is an aesthetic with an intrinsic familiarity and a sense of worn-in warmth that creates the instant feeling of home. Over the years, shabby chic has evolved as a contemporary style, and what’s considered “vintage” has changed over time. Still, the aesthetic has always held its innate charm and sophisticated voice.

Today, the team at Kugler’s Home Fashions is ready to help you explore options for customizing custom window treatments in a shabby chic style with professional tips from our team of experts.

Use Soft Color Palettes in Shabby Chic Style

When it comes to using color in a shabby chic style, err on the side of softness with pastels over dark colors and creamy white as the dominant neutral tone. We also love the freshness that mint green, lavender, peach, and daisy yellow bring to the aesthetic.

 The sculpted style of Vignette® Roman Shades adds a romantic touch to your window shade style that’s perfect for shabby chic design. With lots of color choices to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one that suits your shabby chic look.

Shabby Chic Design Encourages Natural Materials

Wood has a natural charm right at home in a shabby chic style. When customizing window treatments for your home in this interior design style, look for hardwood or faux-wood styles that incorporate natural aesthetics to ingratiate the treatments into existing décor.

Genuine Heritance® Wood Shutters not only add to the cottage aesthetic of shabby chic style, but the treatment also provides a range of benefits, including light control and privacy for homeowners.

Explore Gentler Textures When Customizing Window Treatments

The worn aesthetic and use of vintage items in shabby chic design means there aren’t a lot of hard corners or harsh angles; instead, the aesthetic flows within the space. Accordingly, fabric-based textiles are often used to play upon the softness of this design style.

A modern spin on wood shades, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades from Hunter Douglas use wood, bamboo, grass, and reeds to create soft, sophisticated textiles for Roman shades for drapery that play into the use of natural textures within the space.

Add Glamour By Customizing Window Treatments

Putting the chic in shabby chic décor are touches of glamor and sophistication throughout the space. A vintage crystal chandelier, a bergère chair, or a set of flowing, floor-to-ceiling custom sheer panels can all add an upscale element to balance the shabby in shabby chic décor.

With a fabric library that has dozens of color choices to choose from, Luminette® Sheer Panels gives homeowners seemingly endless options for customizing window treatments for their shabby chic homes. Their soft, filtered glow can enhance the look of any shabby chic living room, den, or dining area.
