I firmly believe that window treatments add the finishing touch to any room. Even for homeowners who prefer things simple, with clean lines, a top treatment or drapery panel finishes any space beautifully.
In fact, I once counted myself as one who preferred windows to be open. I don’t like elaborate, over-the-top window treatments. Instead, a simple blind or shade to take care of the light and privacy issues was good enough for me.
However, the longer I have worked in this business, the more I have come to believe in the power of the window treatment. Below are a few photos of a project we just installed. My client wanted to keep her window trim exposed, and she needed light control and privacy, as this is her master bedroom.
We opted for a custom made Roman shade, which adds softness, color and pattern to the space, as well as taking care of the privacy issues. It doesn’t take much to add punch to a room with a window treatment. What do you think?
We had it made of a striped faux silk fabric with a gorgeous drape. The stripe picks up all the colors in the room, tying things together beautifully. When the shade is raised, it creates its own valance! Simple, elegant – enough.
