It may be cold outside, but you can add warmth to any room with window treatments.
It’s a no brainer that a well-dressed window can make or break a room’s aesthetic, but if you don’t know the basics, then styling your windows can be a huge challenge.
Westbrook, CT native Travis Brestelli and owner of Coastal Concepts, a custom window treatment company, gives a few simple design rules to turn boring windows into a showstopping focal point in any room of your house.
Styling windows doesn’t have to be a ‘pane’ and it doesn’t need to break the bank. Cellular shades also known as honeycomb blinds are sleek, energy efficient and highly customizable. A good set of shades, blinds or drapes can add color and warmth, making an empty space feel instantly like home.

“If you seek to make a sweeping grand statement, artisan custom fabric window treatments are designed to accentuate not only the windows but the furnishings in your home,” says Travis. Coastal Concepts specializes in everything from blinds, shades, and shutters to drapery, curtains, and soft treatments and now even decorative window film.
Travis gives advice built around what a homeowner is looking to achieve in their livable space.
“My goal when I go into a new space is to first listen to what my clients want to ultimately achieve, and then use our wide variety of product to turn that concept into a reality.” say Travis. “But, frequently caution my clients not to go overboard. Too much of anything can be a bad thing, and window treatments are no exception.”
Whether it be a roller shades, wooden blinds, a roman shade or plantation shutters topped with a chic valance, you can find functionality, style, and can actually turn a window into a design focal point of any room.
“Your home tells a story, and every room represents a unique piece of that story. Don’t skimp out on mediocre window treatments,” says Travis. “Different window treatments can be used in each room don’t assume one size fits all, because that is rarely the case.”
While some rules are good to keep in mind when dressing most windows, trust your instinct when styling and remember that, ultimately, a window treatment is meant to treat light, noise or temperature based on your needs of the space.
