DESIGN LINE: 10 Window Shade Treatments

Tuesday, February 19, 2013


When we talk about windows, let me first say that I am a designer of simplicity. I don’t always opt for window treatment at all—but many times we either need it to complete the room or to physically block the light. Because so much of my work is modern-minded or happens within old New England homes with intricate moldings, I often opt to place the treatment inside the window casings. This achieves the simplest look and leaves those charming details exposed.

For those of you eager to know about drapery and other ways to treat your windows, I promise a future column, but for today, let’s take a look at the options for window treatments that fit inside. Not all window jambs will be deep enough to house every type of shade inside, so make sure you find out exactly how deep that jamb is before you get going.
