A Simple Formula for Beautiful Window Treatments

For some reason, window treatments seem to be one of those things that it is just so easy to get wrong. There are so many different opinions on curtain length, layering techniques, how high to hang them and more. If you can buy custom drapes -- DO IT! It makes the biggest difference. But if off-the-rack is more your budget, I have a simple formula for creating a beautiful window moment every time.

  1. I love to start with a roman shade. Bamboo roman shades add texture, warmth and privacy.

  2. You will hear so many designers say, "If a room seems unfinished, it's probably missing drapes." Their importance should not be understated! A curtain or drape softens and room and adds the necessary final touch.

  3. You have a lot of options for hanging drapes, but my preference is a pocket rod drape hung with curtain rings. I posted a video on my IG how I use the curtain rings to further customize the length.

  4. Don't be afraid to addd a little detail to your curtain rods! A beautiful set of finials are one option, but an industrial style rod in a bronze finish adds the perfect amount of character too.


And, whenever possible, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE hang your curtains from the floor to the ceiling. Not only will this make your ceilings seem higher, but it will elevate your space and make it seem more complete.
