A new year will be here soon and that means it’s time to chat about spring window fashions for 2016.

In order to identify what’s hot for the year ahead, we look to trusted experts in the design world. At ABC Blinds & Drapery, we work with the best brands in the business who make high-quality beautiful drapery fabrics. If you’ve been thinking about updating the interiors in your home, here are four popular decor trends for window treatments:

A trend that continues to be a hot style in Spring is metallics. Last year, we saw a surge in mixing metallic shades with decor and accent pieces. Now we’re seeing beautiful fabrics with metallic touches for draperies. The fabric ranges from lightweight silks with soft threads of gold or silver to a rich, luxe, textured fabrics with a soft shimmer. Any look is achievable with versatile metallics!

Bright Pops of Color
In addition to the popularity of golds, creams and grays, another spring window fashion we’re seeing is playful fabrics with vibrant pops of color. From pinks and purples like raspberry and mulberry to warm reds and oranges, if you want to jazz up your interior with show-stopping color, this is the season for it. We’re seeing fun colors collections like Orchid Passion, Indian Summer and Cherry Apple.

Playful Patterns
If you love damasks, jacquards and geometric prints, you’ll be excited to see our color samples and fabric swatches. The modernized versions of these fabrics marry traditional with contemporary. They can be paired with interesting coordinating fabrics on upholstery, bedding and accent pieces to boost or downplay the “wow” factor. Plus, with our extensive collection of blinds, shades and shutters, you can play with fabrics, patterns and colors to create amazing and functional looks.

When it comes to creating custom window treatments with drapes, nothing hangs quite like velvet. Yes, it’s back and we think it will be a popular spring window fashion! Velvet is topping the list of spring styles for 2016. Velvets come in an array of rich colors and weights, even double-faced chenille. We think the rich look of velvet never goes out of style, so we’re excited to see that it’s also been modernized.

Are you ready for a touch of spring in your home? We’d love to help you create the window treatments you’ve been dreaming about, so give us call.
