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.
With windows this tall and dramatic, all you really need is a frame. These shutters allow the light to flood in. Place darker furniture like this glossy black table and gray chairs closer to the light (and white walls) to maintain that airy feeling.
Custom draperies are priced with three elements in mind: panel width, pleat style and lining. For rooms geared toward subtle, serene aesthetics, one pair of single-width panels per window often does the trick. Solids work best in achieving a less-is-more look; if you do choose a pattern, limit your selections to patterns with small or medium repeats.
Robin LaMonte designed this bedroom featuring contrasting yellow walls and red window treatments. A French toile fabric is the foundation for the color scheme while custom drapes, a chaise and bedding complete the design.
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.
Bright curtains bring to life this stunning office space while the clean lines of the desk, floating shelves and sleek storage create a modern yet functional workspace. Sheer window treatment allows natural light to flood the room while maintaining privacy.
