Many many months spent pouring over fabric and trim options for window treatments but I’m happy to report that we finally have completed window treatments throughout our home. I was surprised to find there was a bit of a learning curve trying to differentiate between the endless custom options: knife pleat romans, relaxed romans , london shades, valance’s , panel curtains etc. We ended up selecting a mix of styles throughout the house that I hope to share over the next few weeks.
A lot of followers asked for the specific fabric pattern I used in the kitchen and mudroom and where to get custom window treatments so today I wanted to share my selections in this post for you. I knew I wanted to do a simple roman shade in a fun and vibrant pattern with no trim. I had my eye set on a few ikat styles from Schumaker but decided to spend the $$ on more expensive fabric for the living room and our master bedroom. I was really pleased to find this budget friendly option from fabricut that I ended up liking even more then the expensive styles. The fabric is from Fabricut Trend and the style is Delft in colorway ink . It’s navy and light blue in person but it looks a bit darker on the website. I also loved the lighter colorway: marble. Another all-time favorite pattern of mine but I couldn’t justify the price: here
Where to get custom window treatments? I measured and remeasured my windows, ordered the fabric, had them custom made and frank installed them for me so I could save a little bit of $. You can find a huge selection of discounted fabric and wallpaper on decoratorsbest.com and you don’t need a trade account. That said, if you’re a novice it’s probably best to hire a seamstress. It will save a lot of time and they will come to your house give you exact measurements, make the window treatments and professionally install them for you. This takes the stress out of the whole process. I also looked into places like the shade store but ultimately was unimpressed with the fabric selection. If you still want that custom look and are comfortable measuring the windows yourself you can also go the etsy route. This is a shop on etsy I’ve heard great things about for window treatments and I’ve also had a few pillows made from.
Hope this helps!
