Overview

Windows and window treatments can influence and enhance every decor: opening a room to a glorious view or securing privacy; letting in light or keeping it out; accenting, complementing, or unifying a decorating scheme; taming a large room or expanding a small one. In House Beautiful Windows, all facets of window treatment are explored, including such considerations as scale, proportion, color, and harmony. Window treatments appropriate to every decorating style are offered, from ultra modern to historic homes. The "mechanics" of window treatment-how and where to use them-is presented, along with a look at the traditional and offbeat materials and accessories. House Beautiful Windows, with its more than 125 full-color photos, concludes with profiles of six homeowners throughout the country who have devised their own approaches to windows and window treatments.

Read an Excerpt

Windows are the eyes of a house, and perhaps it is true that in them can be discerned its character and very soul. A grandly arched Palladian window, a small colonial saltbox window, a crystalline sweep of glass. The shape and proportion of each reflect the style of the house they adorn. From the inside, windows are vitally tied to the architecture, too.

High ceilings, for example, are an open invitation to create rich swags, fancy pelmets, or a lush cascade of richly striped fabric, as French designer Denis Colomb did in the room pictured on the opposite page. But done-up windows can suffocate a room that has small dimensions or low ceilings. "Sometimes the best thing to do with a window is nothing at all," suggested legendary designer Billy Baldwin, underscoring the appeal of the undressed window. Elsie de Wolfe, America's first decorator, had a different set of requirements: curtains for privacy at night, and, by day, uncluttered panels filled with sunshine and appealing views. The art of window decoration certainly has its practical side in controlling light and affording privacy, but a beautiful window, de Wolfe was fond of saying, should be "such a gay, animate thing." Excerpted from House Beautiful Windows. Copyright 1997 The Hearst Corporation.
