Design 101 this month has been all about windows! We started off with drapery details and updated our blog this week with details on shades, blinds, and shutters. There are a lot of options when it comes to choosing window treatments, including combining two of your favorites! Below are some of our preferred window treatment combinations.

Drapery Panels, with French Pleats on a Bent Rod, over patterned Flat Roman Shades give this window a punch of color and pattern, adding a visual punch to this peaceful bedroom.
Three treatments are combined in this serene bedroom: Wood Blinds for privacy and light filtering, Roman Shades to offer a blackout solution, and Drapery Panels to differentiate between the sleeping and reading areas.
When considering which style is right for your home, factors to note are:
- How much light do you get into the room? Do you want to control the amount of light?
- How much privacy do you need in the room?
- Will the window treatments be functional or are they for aesthetic reasons only?
- Is your room traditional, modern, or somewhere in between?
- Are the windows in an area that will need to be cleaned regularly?
- Who is using this room?
