Whether you're looking for elegant draperies, Roman shades, or a simple swath of fabric, we have window treatment ideas that will complement every room in the house.
Icy Blue Curtains
Grandly arched windows in the 18-foot-high living room of a Manhattan maisonette are framed by the icy blue of Holland & Sherry Glace curtains in Glacier. Christopher Maya designed the sofa and had throw pillows made from antique Fortuny Fabric.
Ikat Roman Shade
In a Charlotte, North Carolina, house, designer Lindsey Coral Harper made a Roman shade in the same fabric as the kitchen sofa, Thom Filicia's Prospect in Shadow for Kravet, to carry the ikat pattern across the room.
In a Greenwich, Connecticut, house, window treatments have black trim. Designer Ashley Whittaker wanted the bedroom for her client's college-age daughter to feel sophisticated, but still youthful and feminine. She upholstered the bed in Suzzani by Quadrille and dressed it in Matouk Mirasol bedding.
Wallpaper Window Shade
Zim Loy papered vinyl shades in the guest room of her Kansas City, Missouri, house, in Pierre Frey's Espalier, and painted a canopy bed black to show off its silhouette.
Pink Linen Curtains
Pink linen curtains might be unpredictable with a marble-and-granite checkerboard floor and grass-cloth walls, but designer Ruthie Sommers knew they would add pizzazz to her Los Angeles, California, house's entry hall.
The inspiration for the girls' room in a Colonial Revival house in Lattingtown, New York, was their green chest. The chair is covered in Scalamandré's Watermark. Curtain fabric, Sister Parish Design's Dolly; Elysée tassel fringe, Samuel & Sons. John Robshaw throw.
A Greek key border, Clarence House Grand Galon Athenee, "crisps up the edges" of the curtains in a Houston, Texas, dining room, designed by Ann Wolf.
Curtains are made in Clarence House's Beekman Place in a Southampton, New York, guest house, decorated by Ann Pyne. A Dora Frost painting above the post-modern Russian dresser in the "decorator" guest room is fittingly titled Elsie de Wolfe.
Feminine and Masculine Balance
In a Washington, D.C., town house, decorated by Hillary Thomas and Jeff Lincoln, the master bedroom curtains and bedcover are in a Rose Tarlow print, Sea Leaves. The print "strikes the right balance between femininity and masculinity," Thomas says. They hang from custom Morgik metal rods. Shams and linens, Hillary Thomas designer.
