While there’s no one-color-fits-all approach to the perfect window treatments, there are certain hues that can complement a range of palettes and aesthetic styles. Don’t believe us? From crisp white linen drapes to neutral blackout roller shades and more, here are five Barn & Willow window treatments that will work with just about any color or décor scheme—no interior designer necessary.


1. Belgian Flax Linen Drapery in Optic White

Never underestimate the versatility of crisp white drapes in any style or color of room. The Belgian Flax Linen Drapery in Optic White look every bit as sophisticated in a monochrome room as they do in one with brightly colored walls. To open up a small bedroom that’s lacking in natural light, employ optic white-colored drapes that visually expand the space without absorbing light (like dark drapes do). Or, use these classic white drapes to offset a bold color palette by creating a stylish color contrast in the space.


2. Organic Cotton Roman Shade in Birch

For neutral shades that complement a range of hues and aesthetic styles, look no further than the Organic Cotton Roman Shade in Birch. Medium bodied with a smooth finish, these earth-toned shades can bring texture and interest to a minimalist or boho-style space, or casual elegance to a traditional or transitional-inspired room. For an especially eclectic window scene, consider pairing a birch-colored roman shade with cream or off-white-colored drapes to create a sleek, layered look.


3. Belgian Sheer Linen Drapery in Off White

You can always count on a gauzy set of off-white sheer drapes to elevate the ambience of any color of room. In a boho-inspired room, the Belgian Sheer Linen Drapery in Off White will forge an ethereal effect that helps enhance the natural light in a neutral room. And if you’re a more maximalist minded decorator, sheer off-white colored drapes always come in handy for subduing bright paint colors while adding an interesting touch of texture to a space.


4. Blackout Roller Shades in Vanilla

If you thought there was no such thing as blackout roller shades that will work with just about any color palette then it’s time to think again. The Blackout Roller Shades in Vanilla supply all the benefits of blackout shades—thanks to their light and noise blocking lining—but in a creamy, neutral hue that suits a rainbow of colors and décor styles without looking heavy or bulky.


5. Belgian Flax Linen Drapery in Light Gray

Sophisticated yet versatile, gray is a cool neutral that works surprisingly well with a variety of hues and design styles. For a chic window display that complements a light color palette, employ the Belgian Flax Linen Drapery in Light Gray to add a pop of color and personality to the scene. Or, use the same drapes in a dark-painted room with an industrial-style edge to create a softly tailored look that won’t deviate from the moody color scheme.
