I have this 5 year cycle with redoing my own home, working on window treatments at the moment, oh how I love them. What is not to love the fabric, the pattern, the style!
I am all about custom if it is within your budget and for those of you who don’t have the budget embellishing and adding to a standard sized drapery can be done by you or even the alterations person in your community.
Panels and Shades
At the moment simple panels and roman shades are in,
it’s all about the color and pattern of the fabric …
Another big trend, adding a fabric border to the sides of a drapery; like in this room that has used fabric from the custom duvet made for this bedroom. (Windsor Smith’s Kravet Riad print)
Hang Them High
With your drapery – using small rods really makes a more defined statement with the panels in the room and hanging them higher adds height as well..
But no high waters – if you need to, add a complimentary fabric to the top and/or bottom so they touch the floor.

Adding tape (trim) can update an old panel or shade and give it a whole new look! I have even used ribbon to cut the cost down for some clients.
