Bring the Outdoors In

So your bedroom has access to outdoor space? Lucky you! Maintain the connection to the outdoors with drapery panels and window treatments that frame the view instead of distracting from it. "Use window treatments made from fabric with subtle details and texture, and make sure you can pull the panels all the way back," explains Karla Amadatsu, founder of the British Columbia design company Kerrisdale Design. The length of the draperies should just barely touch the floor; this allows you to see the continuity of the floor under the drapery panels connecting the indoor space to the outdoor space. When window treatments break and puddle on the floor, she explains, they give your eye a place to stop and create a division.
