Sampson and DeLucia, creators of the Home Dec In A Sec window-treatment pattern line sold through McCall Patterns, provide a wealth of ideas for those who invest in their patterns. Although they profess to have created a how-to book, they actually give a thorough overview of how to select window treatments, such as draperies, curtains, and shades, as well as decorative elements for embellishing window treatments. A list of basic tools is included. They show how to achieve particular design effects and styles for any d cor with a multitude of color photographs. Unfortunately, they give no instructions for creating the styles, so a book such as Abbott and Burren's So Simple Window Style would be helpful.
