Layered Window Treatments

A touch of romance with graceful pinch pleats and Roman shades

Have you ever gone on a home tour and been in awe of the incredible window treatments in the living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms? The combinations of graceful curves, layered luxurious fabrics, vibrant colors, evocative patterns and exquisite hardware are true works of art.  It might leave you thinking things like:

  • “Who would have thought to mix those patterns/fabrics/colors?”
  • “If that was in my bedroom, I’d never leave the room!”
  • “What glorious windows!”
  • “Someone paid a bundle for that interior designer!”

Capturing a picture of your dream window with your phone is a great way to remember the design, but duplicating that special window treatment in your home may be daunting. For most of us, hanging more than one blind, shade or drape at a window is intimidating, and yet that elegant layered look is so appealing–so you.
