Window treatments

Creative ways to dress your windows.

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!

Stunning detail. Again, see what trim can do- & that pleating is so well done too!

Luscious Draperies with Banding, white linen with Greek Key type banding

"ballerina" pleats- see how they look like laced up toe shoes?

So colorful & fun! Judy Peters, Palmetto Drapery, LLC, Anderson, SC. www.palmettodrape...

Look how that bit of color draws your eye! And the hardware is beautiful. Liz Williams Interiors

The more I do window treatments, the more I like using trim. Just makes it!..

Dramatic use of decorative rod, vibrant fabric - small tassels a nice touch I Linda Chase Associates,London, England

greek key ribbon detail on a roman

Very attractive valance with a molding frame above. Creative & oh so custom. The bell with scalloped edge, the fabrics & trim, just such attention to detail.

Isn't this a pretty way to finish off the top of these panels? Like a shirred bow with a covered button- really original!

bay window solution: swag valance with trim

This flat balloon shade is made so custom looking by its use of buttons, great trim & the hint of a contrast fabric peeking out.

It's the little things that make a difference, like the nailhead trim on this cornice.

Trims add the feeling of luxury & elegance.

I like swags on draperies, & the jabots are a nice touch. Good colors & fabrics too.

.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?

I have luxurious tassel tiebacks like this on the silk draperies in my living room- makes such a statement! From Brimar

The arched valance & side panels complement this formal dining room well. I like the plaid fabric too.

For the serious cook- Roman shade in VeryCherry's Baking Stuff fabric

Love cobalt and white decor. Billowy balloon shades, coordinating slip covers on kitchen table chairs and the back of the desk chair I The Little Corner

Shaped valance adorns tall window

London Shades polished off with top cording and matching knot detail

Note the detail - the fabric on the inside of the box pleat has been cut on the bias I Workroom of Parkway Window Works
