Favorite Window Treatments of Interior Design Power Couples

Here at Strickland’s Blinds, Shades & Shutters, we are always looking for inspiration relating to window treatments. Some of the most exciting new trends can be found in the homes of famous interior design power couples. Here’s how some of the most celebrated design couples complement and complete their interiors with window treatments:

Chip and Joanna Gaines
Chip and Joanna Gaines are especially beloved designers in the South, thanks to their shiplap-inspired country-chic style. To soften the rustic elements incorporated into this style (think barn doors and ironwork), the Gaines often feature neutral fabric window treatments with simple, long draperies that let the light in. You can’t beat the soft light that floods through the windows of this Fixer Upper dining room. As Joanna says, the rustic coastal look of places like Carolina Beach and Topsail Island is “all about encompassing a blend of natural textures like linen, raw wood, and woven design elements.” See more historic home design ideas here, and read up on our beach house shutters here.

Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent
Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent celebrate a “modern classic approach” to window treatments in their 1928 Spanish Colonial in Los Angeles’ Hancock Park neighborhood. As Nate Berkus explains, “My go-to is typically a shade mixed with flat drapery panels that skim the floor. But I tend to create interiors that are a little simpler and a little less ornate. I don’t really reach for fussy window coverings as a general rule.” With the newest addition to their family, a toddler named Poppy, simple and beautiful designs make perfect sense. In their new home, crisp, cream-colored draperies pool softly onto the floor and light linen shades allow just enough lighting for a good read in their living room. We love the way these simple, stylish selections adorn sunny rooms.

The Novogratz
Where Nate and Jeremiah’s aesthetic provokes calm and quiet, Cortney and Robert Novogratz’s style matches their fun, hip, and artsy style with bursts of color and playful patterns. What else would you expect from parents of seven children? In their Greenwich Village townhouse, patterns on patterns allow for variety from room to room when it comes to window treatments. Draperies with geometric linework and bold, room-finishing prints show that the Novogratz aren’t “afraid to take risks and go with patterns and color,” as they say. To the Novogratz, window treatments are “the final step in making a space feel luxurious.” They’re also a fun way to custom-design your room to suit your unique personality and style.

Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan
The ceramicist-designer extraordinaire Jonathan Adler and his husband, Barney’s New York Creative Ambassador-at-Large, Simon Doonan, adorn their spaces with a mix of soft and bold fabric window treatments. In their A-frame cabin on Shelter Island, straight, neutral draperies complement stunning floor-to-ceiling windows while natural linen draperies add texture to a wonderfully eclectic and pattern-rich bedroom. In their Greenwich Village duplex, bold draperies add quirky pops of color to rooms dappled with conversation pieces. Jonathan and Simon’s window treatment style is a great reminder of how shades can make all the difference in highlighting tall windows and doors.
