I am an aspiring interior decorator who has bought tons of window treatment idea books as well as countless magazines for window treatment inspiration. This book now ranks #1 among all my resources for design ideas! The pictures are gorgeous, the styles are numerous and the bonus is that not only do the pictures show great window treatment ideas, but the rooms themselves are equally stunning, giving lots of decorating ideas as well. And while this is not a how-to book, it does help you decide what type of treatmens are best for your particular window type. It also helps you decide, for example, how many pleats you should plan for a pleated valance based on your window size. The only caveat I would give is that it includes mostly traditional decor, including traditional window treatments. There are few examples of more modern, clean-lined treatments. But as my style runs mostly to traditional anyway, this does not bother me. Again, a great resource for design ideas for yourself and for your clients!

I first borrowed this book from our local library, and liked it so much I bought my own. The photos of window treatments in actual rooms make the styles more real than sketches of windows alone. Included are explanations of how the various styles are constructed, and also recommendations for when to use professional installation, 'store-bought' or easy 'do-it-yourself' steps. Practical advice for when to use and when not to use a particular window treatment is really valuable. Whether you like the full multi-layered luxurious treatments, or simple classic coverings, it's all here.

The treatments in your new book are fantastic! How on earth are you able to come up with such a large amount of photos that don't seem to repeat everything else out there? And I don't see a lot of treatments made from the same old patterns either. Bravo! Thank so much for a book that I can show to my clients without apology for outdated photos or chintzy styles.

Your photos are of quality treatments suitable for the best of homes!

This book was very helpful in getting some fresh ideas for our house.
Great photographs, numerous selections. If you just need to see some great curtains, this is a book for you. It will not provide you with the instructions on how to make them.
