Overview

Design Ideas for Windows offers hundreds of ways for dressing a window with hard (blinds and shutters) and soft (curtains, draperies, valances, and fabric shades) treatments. All types of windows are featured in the book, including standard shapes and sizes, as well as special "architectural" windows and odd shapes. Fabric types and recommendations, as well as trimmings, are thoroughly addressed. In addition, the book provides important information regarding hardware (including many examples of the latest decorative rods, finials, sconces, and hold backs) and installation. More topics include: measuring, maintenance and care, and solutions for problem windows.

    Great Pictures

    This book has a really nice variety, that was our main concern when we purchased it...that it might not have enough different window treatments in it. There are plenty. The photos are good enough to show to our seamstress and she can duplicate the treatment.
