A clean contemporary cornice, essentially hides hardware

If privacy and day lighting aren't an issue, clean, bare windows can beautifully exhibit the architectural features of your home. This look is modern + simple.

There are countless ways to "treat" your windows....I've tried to cover an array of great ideas and styles..I love all of the looks chosen for one reason or another....I've also purposely strayed from the "over-done drapery" . Enjoy + good luck. {please feel free to send me an email with any ??}

These balloon shades are quite contrary to the above image, but they add a dramatic, feminine touch to this young girl's room.

I love bathrooms that feel more like a living space. This floor to ceiling drape is hung on a rod with rings, and ends in a dramatic puddle....

An elegant cornice with tied back drapes

Graphic, decorative banding

Woven shades are a nice way to allow filtered light into your space

Decorative glass shelving, creates a sculptural element

Over-sized, gauzy roman shades

Clean, striped, roman shades. Vertical stripes add height to a room.

The banding detail on this roman adds a graphic touch {notice the repeated band on the bed skirt, design is in the details!}

This elegant floor to ceiling sheer, appears to be hung from a track above the ceiling plane {this is a great trick, if you have the opportunity to build-out your space}

Floor to ceiling drapes, with a pinch-pleat detail

Frame your door with long, room heightening drapes

The layered look, pull down shade + drapes
