Beach Flip's Melissa and Mahdi created the feel of a room full of windows by adding drapery panels on two walls of this renovated living room. A wall-mounted TV can be covered by the top set of panels.
To create a tailored look in a simple, monochromatic kitchen, designer Teri Thomas chose a valance and Roman shade in the same fabric. She used a custom-printed fabric from Galbraith and Paul for both the shade and its box-pleated topper, says contractor Duane Johns of Advanced Renovations.
If you want to filter light and soften the look of your kitchen window – but don’t want anything heavy or opaque, consider using a fabric with a loose weave, such as linen, for example. Here, designer Annette English complemented the otherwise pared-down look of the space with lightly textured material from Dan Marty Fabric.
When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down, the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric, Prospect in Shadow,” says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces), barstools and chairs.

Nailhead trim brings structure to an elegant navy blue stool in this eclectic living room. A built-in window seat is paired with patterned pillows and woven window treatments to create a comfortable reading nook.
The warm navy, cream and raspberry colors in this living room work together to create an inviting midcentury modern look. The cream shag rug grounds the space, and windows treatments make the room feel more intimate.
White marble countertops, a soft white gathered window treatment, and sleek white cabinets create a light, airy atmosphere in this transitional kitchen.
