window treatment styles

February 22, 2011

There are many different ways to dress your windows. Oh let me count the ways: panels, shades, shutters… well why don’t we just show you!

Here are some of the ways we have treated some of our clients’ windows…

Stationary Panels: This softens the large window while adding some drama. Since the client didn't need these treatments for privacy, we were able to cut down on yardage (and cost).


Inverted pleats: This style allowed for us to show off the beautiful patterned fabric, and because they are lined panels, they block the hot summer sun and keep this dining room cool in more ways than one!


Roman Shade: we used this treatment in a 'top-down/ bottom-up' application for maximum privacy and light control.

Asymmetrical Valance: we added some fun and whimsy into this little girl's room by using fun dressmaker trim and a kick pleat in the corners of this valance.

Soft, shaped cornice: this top treatment uses embroidered silk and rich, black swagged cotton to soften the sound in this music room.

Pinch Pleats: this heading treatment on these lined, silk panels adds formality and elegance to the living room.

We are gearing up for the ASID Kitchen and Bath Tour this weekend. This year we have a master suite remodel in Minnetonka on the tour… Come, visit us and other kitchens and bathrooms Satuday and Sunday from 10-4.

Things to note in our space:

  1. The curved wood vanity with curved marble top… so sublte and elegant.
  2. The custom sand-blasted mirror pattern matched the pattern in the Roman shade fabric.
  3. The cast iron Kohler clawfoot bath tub… wouldn’t you like to take a soak?
  4. Our location is handing out cookbooks courtesy of the Junior League of St. Paul for each ticket holder. (This is a great cookbook- Holly and I  both have one and the recipes are delicious!)

Be sure to get your tickets and come and say hello!
