Build Your Look | Discover Design Palettes for Your Style

When it comes to custom interior fashion and design, there is a lot to consider. Some people contact a professional immediately knowing what they want, and can have a relatively simple design palette selection process. Other people might not be so sure. What’s new? What’s fresh? But what will make my home look great for years to come? From draperies, fabric shades and custom top treatments like valances and cornices to custom throw pillows, bedding, bench cushions, headboards and more; there’s plenty in your home to coordinate and dress with custom soft fashion style.

What is a Design Palette and Why do I Need One?

Much like starting any well-planned project, it’s best to begin with an idea of what you want your finished product to look or feel like. In interior design, this often means starting off with a mood board, color scheme, or desired design style. Just like nailing down your perfect paint colors for walls and trim, creating a design palette of your perfect fabrics and materials helps to build a well-thought out harmonious room design.


This year’s 2020 Select Masterpieces® Collection is uniquely put together so that you, your custom window treatment professional, interior designer or the likes can easily pair guaranteed fabulous palettes simply by choosing patterns and colors strategically placed next to each other in each book. But by no means does that limit to you to thinking inside the box. Each fabric sample book works beautifully when mixing and matching throughout the book, but definitely plays well with the other books in the collection. Keep your decision making short, sweet and simple or make a day of mixing and matching to your heart and personal style’s delight.

By the Book but Nothing but Ordinary

Below we will explore some design palettes pulled directly from the books to get you started on what kind of spaces you want to build. Keep an eye out for our next blog looking at palettes created from selections across the six book collection for even more design inspiration to build your look.
