Designer Spotlight: Window Dressing Amy Meier Design, Rustic Rooster Interiors & Intimate Living Interiors share with you some of their designer window dressing secrets!
We all like getting dressed up from time to time, but dressing up our windows, now that’s another story. Window dressing takes a certain eye and these designers have it. We asked the experts from Amy Meier Design, Rustic Rooster Interiors & Intimate Living Interiors to share with you some of their designer window dressing secrets!
“The opportunity to customize window treatments is often overlooked. A small detail like gathering pleats with contrast stitching brings dimension to the room. To add old world ambience, think about using custom interior shutters instead of fabric. While they require additional time and expense, touches like this bring originality and intrigue to your home.”

“I’m all about adding texture to a window. Do something different… Add layers! I love to place woven wood blinds behind classic drapery panels when I’m decorating a room. This combination helps to make rooms appear larger because the eye is drawn upward. The simplicity of panels compliments the chunkiness of a classic bamboo shade & adds warmth to a room. This is a fantastic look in seaside homes.”

“Casual elegance. I love accenting windows and doors with just a hint of softness. In this photo is an underplayed treatment with maximum potential. Soft linen panels with accent banding on the leading edge overlay motorized black-out roman shades (also in a linen to keep it soft). These can be used to filter light by just drawing the drapes and are lovely as they flow in the breeze. Or, drop the roman shades with the push of a button for full black-out and privacy.”
