From Velvety Soft Chenilles
to shimmering metallics, to delicious chocolate browns to fun bubble-gum pink, what’s hot in curtain accessories and trims are playful patterns, shimmering details and surprising color combinations.
Chocolate: the New Neutral
In keeping with the sweets trend, chocolate continues to be a hot color for fabrics, tassels and trims for window treatments. Cocoa, mocha and chocolate look especially sweet when paired with fresh shades of peppermint pink, chartreuse green and ice blues.

Shimmering metals have never been bigger in curtain accessories, bringing at once elegance, soft color and light to a window treatment. Hot colors combine copper, soft gold and silver with metallic blues and grays for texture and detail that is never flat. Metallic rods complete the look for a stunning finish.

The Candy Crowd
Bright new curtain fabrics are now “in”: fun, retro patterns and colors for the youngest of clients—the preteen and teenager—looking to add personality to their rooms. Colors come straight from the 64-crayon pack, bringing to mind sweet shades of melon, tangerine, honeydew, bubblegum and lemon drop.
