Overview

New in Paper

Whether they're wisps of sheer organza, lean slatted blinds, or full formal curtains, your window treatments define your style. Through lavish photographs, this book shows how to make a romantic statement with your windows that will wake up an entire decorating scheme. Find out how to enhance your home's architecture and use treatments to soften a room's lines, add color and warmth, and emphasize good proportions and improve bad ones. See how elegant simplicity can be, with billowy white muslin curtains or basic floral prints. Choose traditional English country, perhaps with swag and tail; dress windows for privacy; and take a close-up look at everything from tiebacks to shutters. Whichever you decide on, your room will have an exciting new focus.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A wealth of ideas for window decorating is found in these two books. Evelegh (Color in Your Home) thoroughly reviews the options for window treatments, discussing window architecture (a feature often overlooked), fabrics, hardware, tiebacks, and styles (e.g., headings, valances, blinds, and draperies). The majority of the book shows window treatments, with captions that point out how to use style, setting, and fabrics to convey the desired look, whether traditional or casual. Parsons (Country Living) provides myriad color photographs depicting various styles of window treatments from simple to formal, with decorating advice. Neither book contains instructions for making window treatments. Evelegh's book is recommended for public libraries; Parsons's is recommended if there is a continuing interest.
