Beautiful drapery ideas from 1808, in the book, Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, in the Most Approved and Elegant Taste. You can read it on the DIY Collaboratorium's library page. The way it was!
.I love the way the wood cornices & draperies are done. So much more practical & realistic than all these photos you see of uncovered windows over a tub. Seriously, would any woman bathe at night knowing anyone could see in?
