When it comes to window furnishings, anything goes. At least, that’s the word from Neale Whitaker, esteemed interior designer, editor of Belle magazine and judge on The Block 2013.

Hear what Neale Whitaker has to say in this short video clip – he does get quite specific!

The trends in home automation and motorisation are extending to the windows. Window furnishings are switched on with smart technology to create a more energy efficient home. However, for more traditional window treatments, it’s all about diffusing the light. This is especially important in Australia, where home interiors suffer from harsh light. A softer effect is achieved through a combination of surfaces at the window – not just curtains or blinds.

In terms of colours and textures, it’s important to choose with care. Look for what works with your colour scheme and aesthetic. After all, this is an investment that will be there for a few years yet.
