Designer window treatments can help change your windows from boring to beautiful.  The right design and the right light in your room will help lift your spirits and your mood.  You can have a stylish, versatile look for every window in your home.

What do you need most in your window treatment?  Do you need privacy?  Do you need light control?  Do you need energy efficiency?  Do you need motorization?

With the client's tall windows above, the drapery treatment was designed to not block the view and to complement the architecture of the home.  Two story window treatments look amazing when they fall all the way from the top.  They also look good pulled back with ties and large tassels.

You may want to enhance your light coming from your windows but also ensure your privacy.  A professional designer will help you choose patterns, colors, textures and weaves for your window fabrics.

As you can see from our client's  photo above, the drapery is sheer but has a beautiful pattern.  It adds texture and amazing beauty to the room even though it seems like a simple design.  Sometimes the simplest designs can be the best.

Our client wanted a formal, traditional, dramatic treatment in this living room. We used silk materials and a damask pattern in the gorgeous fabric. The treatment has swags and jabots with a bishop sleeve tieback. 

Drapery treatments need to be designed and installed correctly for each specific window. A professional interior designer is used to designing treatments for different types and sizes of windows.  They have hundreds of different design ideas in their minds and can be very creative with them.

We recommend that you call a professional designer to help make your custom draperies outstanding.
