To the outside world, your living room says a lot about you, your lifestyle, and your personality. One of the most important decisions you'll make about this room is – what to do with the windows! Do you want your new window treatment to make a bold decorative statement, or work more as a subtle background of your furnishings? Sometimes it's very important to design window treatments not only to hide an unpleasant view, but to allow in plenty of sunshine. Be sure to think through all the needs of your room before deciding on a specific window treatment.
If a bold decorative statement is more to your liking, try a luxuriously designed swag and jabot treatment designed in a soft flowing silk fabric. Actually your fabric choices are limitless for these ever popular top treatment designs. And don't forget – sheers are back!! Burn outs, 118" tergals, silks and textured sheers are all the rage for today's dramatic window treatments.
When designing your window treatment to create a subtle background for your furnishings, it's best to blend the window treatment fabric with your wall color to achieve a unified look. Again, fabric choices are virtually limitless – from soft textures like velvets and faux suedes, to crisp taffetas. Have some fun with textures!
