Windows, The Star of the Room

Poor Nate (my son), he is window treatment deprived. After three years and one perfectly decorate room, I still haven’t pulled the trigger on window treatments. How does this poor boy even sleep? We may have a case of the shoemaker’s children not getting shoes. So in my research, I decided to inspire myself, and hopefully you, with some of my favorite window treatment looks.

For a little girl, I love drapes—the silkier and more luxurious the better. These make such a dramatic statement especially surrounding a gorgeous window seat. Yum!

Roman shades are probably what Nate will end up with. Using fun fabrics is a great way to bring in another element or pattern in the room. Go cordless.

Mixing a woven shade with drapes is a fabulous look. The natural feeling of the shades brings in an earthy texture to the room—perfect for a little boy.

    Well, yes, the windows can be the star of the room. Depends on the way you “dress” them up.

    The perfect window for me is large and one that catches the early morning sunshine, dressed in light-colored and light-textured curtains.

    The way you just said that — I mean wrote that — I’m guessing your perfect window is not what you have in your home?

    You’re right. Our windows are not as large as I would have wanted. I’ve been wanting to do some renovations on them, but that’s not really the priority right now.
