Window Treatments

Giveaway for Katie's 100th post! Go here to enter into her "special teas" giveaway and view her new website - Katiestearoses. Adorable little "teacups" for you to see.

I love the lusciousness of curtains or fabric on a window but some do not and that is just fine. However, I've lived in some places while hubs was in the military that the windows were not all that pretty! Downright ugly in fact and needed something to cover up the ugly window and sometimes the view beyond! But if you're a fan of "openness" in your treatment of your windows look at this one. Just beautiful. The view beyond looks fabulous also.

I love this country cottage romantic look and the window treatment is certainly appropriate to the decor. NOT that I'm any kind of authority - just know what kind of "beauty" I like. LOL But if fabric has roses on it, I'm SOLD! Plus if there is pink or red in the room I'm double SOLD. ;-)

I've done this to some windows in some homes we've lived it because it is sooooo simple and quick to do and can be hung with inexpensive upholstery tacks, which I keep a supply handy for many things.

Same thing here, just done with sheers/lace. In our last home I did this treatment under some side panels and it was stunning.

I absolutely love this treatment. It would require the lining to be the same fabric but think about a contrasting fabric and how gorgeous that would be - say a check or brighter solid version of a color in the front fabric. Yummy. I might try this one in the future. I'm always changing things around in this house. ;-)

No window is hopeless as these 2 tiny attic windows can attest.

And then of course, the curtains can match the wall coverings to give it pizzazz. This room leaves my eye no place to rest however. It's lovely, but I need wall space for my "fluff/pictures/shelves/and such." But it is stunning and dramatic.
