Inspired Interiors for 2024

This elegant living space built by Sigma Builders and designed by Stephanie Wiott Designs is accentuated by thoughtful, classic touches and luxurious, two-story velvet drapes from Drapery Street.

As the days lengthen and the sun begins to shine in, we start thinking about spring cleaning and airing out our homes. Clear and shiny windows and open, uncluttered spaces call for fresh window treatments in the latest styles. Draperies and shades are classic in nature, but Drapery Street in the Indiana Design Center can create a look custom to your particular aesthetic.

Prints and patterns have been gaining in popularity over the past few years, with the surge of maximalism and more common use of wallpaper. While that trend continues to keep pace, the prints used in current designs have grown larger in scale, creating interest and contrast. Stripes, herringbone, geometric shapes and florals are all favorites. “These prints are not only stylish, but some of these patterns, like vertical stripes, for example, can create the illusion of a taller ceiling,” says Caryn O’Sullivan, owner of Drapery Street.

Quiet luxury, both in fashion and in interior design, has become a new way to describe a high-end, tailored look that is both timeless and elegant. Classic furniture and traditional architectural details combine with dark woods and lush fabrics in these elevated spaces. Says O’Sullivan, “To get this look at your windows, think about silk, velvet and linen fabrics and wood shutters.”  Custom draperies and well-constructed shutters show off bespoke details and the care that went into the construction.

Natural linen drapes from Drapery Street in this serene spa bathroom designed by Stephanie Wiott Designs offer complete privacy while filtering in the sunlight.

Spa-inspired bathrooms, or “spathrooms”, are not only a decor trend, but a health and wellness movement. These spaces can have built-in steam showers, saunas and cold plunges, but the ultimate in luxury wellness is privacy, which thoughtful window treatments can provide. In this application, vinyl or faux wood materials are key, to stand up to the humidity and moisture of the environment. “Top-down, bottom-up shades are ideal in a bathroom so you can let in the natural light of the day, which is not only flattering, but essential to our well-being,” says O’Sullivan.
