An Inside View

An Inside View

My husband and I were out to eat with friends a few weeks ago at one of my favorite restaurants in DC.  The food is always yummy and of course I LOVE the decor, especially the window treatments.




 Window treatments really define your space.  The fabric and style of the treatment personalize the area and help cover any problems with the window frame.  There are so many tricks you can do if you don’t like the way your windows look.  If you feel your window is too small, drape panels can create the illusion that it’s wider.   If you want a taller window, hang a valance from the ceiling above it.  You can also break up a wide window frame using multiple panels.  I’ve used this trick so many times for houses built in the 50′s where there is usually a wide window in the living room.

Here are a few window treatments I wanted to share with you.


Drape panels should either touch or puddle the floor.








This is a perfect example of breaking up a wide window by using multiple panels.

Here are some fun ideas for smaller windows.DSCN0506
