It Doesn’t Take Much…

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.
