Touch of Sand is warm and inviting for any home, with a hint of beige and soft undertones. The grey base works well with off-white trim like Westhighland White SW 7566.

Another huge color that continues to be used in 2024 is Snowbound SW 7004.  This amazing color goes with every palette from gray to brown.  It adds warmth and charm to any room with any style, from contemporary to traditional.

This same attention to detail now applies to your window covering selection. Because of this, Ron can help guide you through the choices, from blinds to shades and from shutters to “soft treatments” like drapes. Ron helps make the design and selection process easy, and it is all based on your choices, your inputs, and your desired end result.  And remember, you can always trust Made in the Shade Blinds & More to protect your privacy, as we will never share your contact or email with anyone.

Take the Color Quiz Before You Start Anything!

This color quiz from Sherwin-Williams helps you identify your “Color ID.”  It is a great way to start in the discovery of how to improve your space to make it more relaxing, inviting, and rewarding for you.  Your home is your sanctuary, and picking the right color is the most important first step.  Here is a link to the color quiz, “What’s my Color ID?” Ron Carter Design


Woven wood window treatments are made from a wide variety of bamboo reeds, jute grasses, or a combination of other natural materials. They continue to gain popularity in 2024 as an eco-friendly alternative to fabric and plastic.  Woven wood shades also work well with a variety of styles, from California cool to farmhouse chic.

RON CARTER DESIGN TIP:  Bamboo blinds are stylish and durable.  They add a relaxed element to your room and look great in a beach house or a sun porch. They block out plenty of light, but they are not heavy or imposing.  The organic addition to your space will feel airy and bring a warm glow to the space back. These shades are neutral and natural, created with organic, renewable materials.

Bring Outdoor Elements to Interior Spaces

According to Eden Morrison, designer at Graber, a Springs Window Fashions company, the hottest interior design trend of the moment is inspired by friluftsliv (literally ‘free air life,’) a Scandinavian concept that’s all about enjoying the pleasures of the outdoors year-round. From a design standpoint, friluftsliv means bringing elements of the outdoors into living spaces. 


As you look at our website’s beautiful window treatment options, look for the special tips from Ron Carter Design.  He has tailored these tips based on our West Little Rock metro area clientele.  Ron applies his knowledge of today’s trends and the traditional principles of design to create timeless tips for your windows.  One of the biggest trends that we expect is the expanded use of woven wood shades as Roman-style window coverings.  These come in hundreds of color and texture options, so as a result, you have to see them to appreciate their style.

One of the best and most commonly overlooked window coverings for 2024 is the “Layered Shade” aka “Zebra Shade.” They provide privacy, light control, and contemporary flair for any home.

RON CARTER DESIGN TIP: To summarize, 2024 is going to be an exciting year for people who are settling into the new normal and improving their homes.  Call us today with your vision and we will bring it to life with new and timeless window treatments.  It’s all Easy & Elegant with Made in the Shade Blinds & More of Little Rock.  We expect to see more and more woven wood shade applications in 2024, including woven wood Roman Shades with operable black out lining for bedrooms.  These shades fit perfectly into any décor, from farmhouse to shabby chic, and very versatile.  The operable lining creates the perfect sleeping environment when down and lets the woven woods glow in the sunlight when up.
