Windows are the epitome of the pairing of function and beauty. They are the transition between the outdoors and indoors, ushering light and air inside. They are a means of extending our views beyond the parameters of our walls. To spin a well-known phrase, they are our eyes to the world outside, mirrors of the soul within.
Now, more than ever, well-dressed windows are a focal point, even to the extent that they are making a central style statement. When furnishing our homes today, we recognize the impact that our windows and their views make, thoughtfully framing them as we would frame a picture. We have grown weary of hard and stark treatments, so we are moving away from using blinds and shades alone, and are using draperies and curtains more extensively to soften the window scape.
Today, window treatment approaches are as varied as are home furnishing styles, ranging from full layered treatments to simple valance or panel treatments, from light and sheer to weightily and opulent. Lifestyles and home furnishing tastes tend to determine window treatment choices, and in some cases, have lead to the creation of new window treatment trends.
