Curtains finish a room and make a home.

If you ever  doubted the power of window treatments to add the perfect finish to a room, here is a recent project. Often the window treatment is the last thing we do when we decorate a room, but a room is just not  complete until the “curtain call” , and often the show stopper ! Beautiful drapery curtains, even the most simple,  are an all-time favorite way to finish a window. There is something about the way they frame a window, the perfect borders to a beautiful garden or view, like framing a perfect picture, and drapes are an investment for the home.

When chosen correctly a window treatment gives a finishing touch to any room. It pulls the elements of décor together and helps define the overall theme.
