Deck the Halls: How to Decorate with Window Coverings for the Holidays

Dec 01, 2023

As the year-end holidays approach, so does the urge to transform your home into an enchanting haven that radiates festive cheer and warmth. You certainly want your loved ones to be wowed by your home’s style and look. You also want them to feel welcomed into a comfortable refuge from the outside world as you celebrate the season and each other. Twinkling lights and gleaming on a breathtaking tree aren’t the only places to showcase seasonal joy. With their versatility and elegance, window coverings provide an extraordinary but often overlooked opportunity to transform your home into a holiday wonderland. Turn your windows into captivating focal points that dial the holiday charm all the way up!


Layering for Depth and Drama

Layering window treatments is a clever technique that adds depth, dimension, and visual interest to your windows. This approach allows you to combine different window coverings, such as curtains, sheers, and valances, to create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing ensemble.


Crafting a layered arrangement of window treatments perfect for the holidays is like orchestrating a symphony of seasonal elegance and style. Consider combining sumptuous velvet curtains in deep ruby red or emerald green hues with valances that showcase captivating holiday motifs, for instance. Pairing the opulence of velvet with the intricate detailing of the valance creates a harmonious and beautiful ambiance that radiates warmth and timeless sophistication.


For a classic holiday look, consider pairing sheer white curtains with a rich, festive valance adorned with holiday motifs. The delicate transparency of the sheer curtains allows natural light to filter through while the valance adds a touch of color and pattern, creating a warm and inviting ambiance.


Embracing the Versatility of Fabrics for a Festive Touch

Explore a broad range of fabrics to truly elevate your holiday décor. If you’re a traditionalist who loves opulent elegance, consider luxurious velvets and other plush fabrics for warmth and sophisticated allure as they drape elegantly over your windows. Jewel tones are always an excellent holiday choice, especially for indulgent fabrics.


If your personal style trends a bit more whimsical and eclectic, consider the gentle charm of sheer fabrics like voile, organza, or chiffon. These fabrics allow natural light to filter through, imparting a soft and airy vibe. Adorning your windows with sheer curtains in playful holiday colors while integrating motifs like snowflakes, candy canes, or reindeer can bring a touch of delightful festivity to any room of the house.


Don’t Be Intimidated by Holiday Motifs and Patterns

The winter holidays only come once each year; why not let the holiday spirit resonate through everything down to your window coverings? Consider a base palette of damask curtains or valances in classic holiday color combinations like red, green, and gold or blue, white, and silver. Then, introduce a sprinkle of playful fun with classic holiday patterns like holly leaves, poinsettias, and ornaments.


The beauty of holiday motifs and patterned fabrics lies in their versatility because they can be paired just as beautifully with simpler, more minimalist window coverings. From the main rooms of the house to children’s bedrooms and play spaces, there’s no such thing as too much holiday fun.


Utilize Color Psychology for a Seasonal Impact

Leverage the expressive power of colors to set the mood. Red symbolizes passion and energy, adding drama and sophistication to your holiday spaces, especially in dining or living rooms. Green, representing harmony and balance, creates a calming atmosphere ideal for bedrooms or relaxation areas. Integrating gold accents, like trims and tiebacks, add a touch of luxury and glamour to holiday windows.


Blue, white, and silver are winter holiday colors that symbolize purity, hope, and miracles. Incorporating these hues into your décor can add a touch of sophistication and sparkle to your holiday windows, reminiscent of the twinkling lights and festive decorations associated with this time of year.


Dress Your Windows in Seasonal Finery for Festive Elegance

Enhancing your window coverings with holiday-inspired accessories brings the season an extra touch of magic and joy. In addition to spectacular window treatments, adorn window frames with garlands of faux greenery or twinkling lights, casting a magical aura throughout your space. Top off your window treatments with a festive wreath or clusters of pinecones for a touch of natural rusticity.


As you incorporate these creative ideas into your holiday décor, your windows become enchanting showcases that capture the season’s essence.

Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.

They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.

The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
