Lining color can be just as important as as the interior color on your window treatments. This blog and video show you what the Hunter Douglas Streetside lining looks like on a Vignette Shade. Certain communities, such as Lahontan and Martis Camp, in the Lake Tahoe area require a non-white lining for window coverings.

The difference between white and tan can be very subtle, but sometimes there are reasons to make the change to a non-white lining color. Here are some of the reasons:

  • Homeowner Rules- In a community where they require natural finishes, like wood, metal or stone, a bright white lining color can be glaring
  • Greater Harmony- You just may want to have a warmer look to the outside of your home.
  • Interior Benefits- If you use a light filtering lining, whatever the lining color is will filter through the fabric and will affect the color of the fabric that you see. The rule of thumb is that a white colored lining will amplify the color you select for the face fabric and an ivory will add yellow to that color. On this last point, keep in mind that grays are really hot right now. Yellow and gray can be very conflicting, so be careful with liner colors.
