Simple panels are one of the easiest and most popular window-treatment options. To spice up the living room's neutral palette, designer Troy Beasley selects white-and-green-striped curtains. Choose wider stripes and contrasting hues for a more modern look.
Elegant Yet Simple
To match the scale of the formal dining room, designer Lori Dennis hangs heavy brocade curtains right below the tray ceiling. A simple ring heading is used to balance the luxurious fabric, while silk ties hold the draperies back to allow natural light into the space.
Valances provide a streamlined look by hiding drapery hardware. Designer Troy Beasley pairs a valance with cream panels trimmed in brown to add warmth to the bedroom while still letting in a little natural light.
Sleek and Blue
Designer Lori Dennis maintains the contemporary look of the living room with sleek panels hung close to the wall. Hidden hardware gives the window treatments a streamlined look.
