How to Use This Book

CREATING A BEAUTIFUL WINDOW treatment that meets the specifications of your project is all about making the right choices.

Too many times the wrong decisions are made due to lack of knowledge or exposure to the many options that are available to you. This directory breaks down thousands of current window treatment designs into over 350 individual components that can be used alone or in combination with each other to create unique designs that will expand your options and allow you to express your creativity.

Each section of the directory will assist you in making decisions critical to your design success.

Design: Using the fundamentals and calculations outlined in the first chapter, measure your window, analyze your space, and calculate the basic proportions, lay out, and construction of your design.

Fabric: Choose the fiber, weave, pattern, hand, and color of the fabrics you will use.

Heading: Plot your heading style and variations if you are designing panels, a valance, or a shade.

Style: Choose one of the finished treatments in the book or use a combination of the individual components shown to create a new look.

Patterns are available for many of the designs. Look for the pattern maker listed below the design description. Find their contact information in the resource directory.

Embellishments: Apply the finishing touches that will personalize your design.

Hardware: Choose the appropriate type and style of hardware or mounting technique for your treatment.

Workroom: Communicate your designs effectively and accurately to your workroom to ensure that your treatments are made properly.

I am the owner of a west suburban drapery workroom, exclusively for interior designers. I am a master drapery artisan, WFCP CWP and board member of WCAA Chicagoland. As an expert in this field, I probably own every style book published. This is by far the new Bible for workrooms and designers. It comes with a CD to print black and white line drawings of page size treatments designers can use for their client presentations. I highly recommend this book.

There are tons of little bits of information in this book that I did not know, useful charts and formulas. If you are a window treatment seamstress or designer, this is a very good book.
