Window Treatment Trends are always changing and improving to meet customer’s needs. From organic calming hues to responsible design elements, customers are requesting change and Helm Paint and Decorating has the the perfect solutions.
Bringing the outside inside is one of the latest design trends for window treatments. The colors are focusing more on hues of green. One of the most calming colors and top picks for 2022 is October Mist by Benjamin Moore. October Mist is evocative of the stem of a flower, this gently shaded sage anchors and uplifts. Window treatments fabric color trends are also lending towards these organic greens like Duette® Architella® Elan® Julep and Sonnette® Ainsley™ in Sage Green by Hunter Douglas. In addition, earthy terracotta and warm golden hues continue to be popular, along with rich denim blues, like Pirouette® Shantung in Nocturin and Sonnette Elan® Weathered Navy.
Welcoming Outside Light
The window is the direct portal to nature. The natural light helps to boost moods and create a welcoming indoor environment. At Hunter Douglas, the perfect window covering will reap all of the benefits of the sun without the harsh glare. Look to Pirouette and Silhouette® Window Shadings, which soften natural light. And with the ClearView® feature, available for both of these shadings, specialized sheers provide an exceptionally clear view-through to the outside, while obscuring views into your space.
GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ Fabrics
Responsible design is definitely a window treatment trend that has continued in popularity in 2022. GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ screen shade fabric, for example, exclusive to the Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades line, is made from reclaimed ocean plastic—in an effort to divert this waste from landfills.
And energy-efficient window treatments, like cellular shades, help lower our environmental footprint by providing added insulation at the window. Top choices for keeping your house snug when it’s cold and cooler when temperatures heat up include Duette Honeycomb Shades and Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades.

Smart Technology for the Home
Adopting Smart Home Technology adds comfort, convenience and efficiency to the daily life. Easy to use gadget designs are rapidly becoming part of the interior design process including part of the latest window treatment trends.
For instance, the Pebble® Remote Control—used to control Hunter Douglas window treatments with PowerView® Automation, is not only functional—it looks good, too. Unlike clunky remotes that you hide out of site (and then subsequently misplace), the Pebble remote sports an attractive, curved design that’s available in various colors.
Fabrics and finishes are also elements that pair well with the design of smart-home technology. The line of Elan® Metallic fabrics for Sonnette shades, Satin Metallic fabrics for Pirouette shadings, and Alustra® Architella® Apollo™ fabrics for Duette shades all offer subtle sheens that complement a sleek, clean aesthetic.
