Successful Picture Window Transformation

Window Treatment Detail

Earlier this week I installed this window treatment in a modest ranch in Holden, MA.  The elderly widower was so pleased by the transformation of his room I believe I saw a tear in his eye!

Successful Picture Window Transformation

Soft shaped cornice with shirred accent wrap, stationary pinch pleated side panels, 2″ Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds by Hunter Douglas


Does this window look familiar to you?  I wrote a post about it while in the works at my studio.  I also posted a detailed rendering of the proposed design so the homeowner knew exactly what he was getting. Take a peek back to see what this window looked like before it was professionally dressed.  You won’t believe it is the same home!

Why this window treatment works

  • The valance and panels are stacked off the window to allow as much light and view as possible.
  • The soft curves of the valance carry your eye gracefully across the window.
  • The valance is in proper proportion to the window and it is short enough to enjoy the view.
  • The floral fabric from RM Coco is a blend of the colors in the room and an accent to the wood on the window shelf.
  • 2″ slat blinds are an updated look that allows light control and privacy while sustaining the environment (They are Hunter Douglas Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds) 
  • High-quality lining and interlining protect the fabric, reduce light diffusion and give energy-saving insulation.
  • This custom window treatment is expertly made by master seamstresses to be of the highest quality to provide the homeowner with many years of beauty. (i.e. The window completes the room so the homeowner can sit back and enjoy.)
