Filmed all over the U.S. and Canada, HGTV’s show The Property Brothers is yet another fan favorite “fixer-upper” show. The Property Brothers, starring twins Drew and Jonathan Scott, is centered around the brothers helping couples buy and transform extreme fixer-uppers into their ultimate dream home. With the use of CGI, they are able to reveal their vision of what the fixer-upper has to offer and the potential that lies within the home. While this often requires intense renovation projects and a complete decor overhaul, there are some aspects that can easily be integrated into your own home.
If we were to use three words to describe the style of Drew and Jonathan Scott, they would be: fresh, inviting and personality. At ABC Blind and Drapery, we love to draw window treatment inspiration from others, and The Property Brothers are no exception. After all, window treatments can indeed give a room a fresh feel, make a room more inviting to guests and help show off your personality.
When it comes to home decor, having a layout that looks fresh and clean can actually help distract away from any potential messes. While it’s very possible to decorate with colors other than white and achieve a fresh look, we love this simple and elegant bathroom with a window treatment to match, a classic gray set of blinds, which is similar to this all white bathroom The Property Brothers did for one of their clients. Not only does the bathroom feel fresh, the natural lighting is to die for!
A welcoming home is well-kept, but not to the degree that it feels like a formal sitting room. For a window treatment, we’d recommend something easy to operate that allows you to control the light. Comparable to the photo above, here’s an inviting living room that offers controlled lighting created by The Property Brothers. An inviting home is functional and window treatments that are difficult to open and close are not! When you have guests, you want to be able to let the natural light stream in and fill your room and when everyone has gone home, you can close your drapes and get some rest!
In a home, the personality can be shown through vintage wood flooring or a unique bay window. In our world, window treatments with personality mean they are custom-made to you. It means having patterned shades that show off your personality like seen above, that help tie your whole room together. You can see a similar take on patterned draperies by The Property Brothers here.
Whether you’re a Property Brothers fanatic, or are just looking to incorporate a fresh and inviting window treatment that shows off your personality, we’d love for you to consider the possibilities with us at ABC Blind & Drapery!
