I really wanted something besides standard drapes in our new home. This book contains a wealth of ideas with photos showing the whole room, not just the window. The colorful photos are quite large (unlike the cramped decorating pictures squeezed into the magazine) and sometimes even a double-page spread.The photo captions explain the decorator's ideas, use of color, framing a view, etc. plus DESIGN TIPS are scattered through the book.I found some beautiful ideas for my book room, for the dining room, and for the guest room. The variety shown ensures that no matter what your style preferences are, you'll find something here.
I bought this book to help me decide on window treatments for my master bedroom. When the decorator arrived, she noticed the book lying on my coffee table. She picked it up, began looking through it and asked, "May I borrow this book? It has terrific pictures and some great ideas." Enough said.
I did not realize that I had not written a review for this book. I am sitting here looking through it, and had already tagged pages.This time I am looking for something for a guest bathroom and a couple other rooms. I also want to loan a new neighbor one of my books, but hesitant to "loan"; however, after going through this one I decided to order a copy for her. The pictures are great and there are many other ideas to pick up in the room settings. I love it!!
There were some terrific photos of window treatments. As someone who makes all of my curtains because I don't like anything I can buy and can't afford to pay someone else to do it, I'm always looking for something new. This book does not tell you how to make anything, but with a some experience, you can look at the pictures and figure it out. Well worth having.
