Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Don't worry about unfamiliar vocabulary here because Parks not only explains decorating jargon but also provides ideas, guidelines, and instructions for covering windows in dozens of different styles--swags, roller shades, lambrequins and cornices, and goblet or pencil-pleated draperies, for instance. Nonsewers will appreciate the attention paid to planning and answers to questions about function, characteristics, room styles, and other aspects. Readers will be buoyed by the wealth of information, illustrations, and color photographs, in addition to professional tips, such as, "Don't wash or dry clean fabric window treatments. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum." Now, plain or fancy, home windows get a new look.
