Whether you keep your home’s decor on-trend with the seasons or just happen to be refreshing your home this fall, caramel is a popular shade family to use.

Hunter Douglas, Vignette® Roman Shades, Decorating with caramel colors near Rochester, New York (NY)

Sleep Soundly

This shade of brown is in the neutral family but is anything but bland. Caramel and hues close to it give a sense of warmth and are perfect for creating a cozy bedroom. Fortunately, you don’t have to repaint the room to take advantage of the aesthetic perks of this color. The shade works well with crisp white, olive, and burgundy. It also makes colors like coral and royal blue really pop. You want the window treatments in your bedroom to provide ample privacy and light control. Vignette® Roman Shades are the ideal solution for this. Choose a room-darkening fabric with the top-down/bottom-up option to give yourself maximum flexibility for light and privacy. Marshland and Vintage Suede are two fantastic shade colors to consider.

Accent with Black

Shades of brown are very grounding when used in decor schemes. You can use caramel colors throughout a room if you tie the look together with black accents. Wood in a similar brown shade adds a touch of softness. You can also use shades of green to create a relaxing European aesthetic. We recommend Parkland® Wood Blinds when using a lot of caramel in a space. Natural wood adds character and warmth while providing excellent variable light control and privacy. Barnwood and Ashwood are our preferred colors when complementing shades of caramel brown.

A Caramel Kitchen

What better space than where you prepare food to decorate with this mouth-watering hue? Painting your cabinets and trim in this color will present an aesthetic of eras past while maintaining modern conveniences. Create a cohesive decor style with Designer Roller Shades in Forest. This shade of green will pop against your walls and trim in a pleasant, understated way. Roller shades are great for kitchens as they are easy to clean and maintain. You can choose the Duolite® option if you prefer having a sheer shade and opaque liner on the same roller.

Take Cozy to the Next Level

Warm shades are inherently comforting. Think about autumn colors and how you feel wrapped in your favorite luxe throw with a mug of hot cocoa. Caramel color is a beautiful choice for a reading nook or den. The hue pairs beautifully with natural materials like wood, stone, and clay. It also coordinates well with natural fabrics made of grasses or jute which make Provenance® Woven Wood Shades an ideal choice for windows in this room. Woven shades are handcrafted using all-natural material giving each shade a unique appearance. You can enjoy the light-filtering properties of this shade on its own or choose to add a liner for more privacy.
