The ABC’s of window treatments
Embellishments are details that we add to our window treatments to make them more interesting and to express our style.
Fringes and tiebacks are the most popular way to add detail and emphasize curves. I made these sheers from a Kravet fabric that has flowers embroidered on it.
Pillows are a great place to showcase embroidery and this one has antique French metallic embroidery on yellow silk moire fabric.

Greek key trim is used to outline the panels, valance and coverlet in this bedroom. I can’t remember where I found this picture, tell me if you know ……….
A hand pleated ruffle is a nice detail for the bottom of valances and on the edges of duvet covers. Notice the valance below also has a cording on top of the ruffle.
I can’t wait to do an applique like this one that Susan Kostelecky showed our WCAA group at a recent meeting.
Buttons are a nice touch on these london shades by Sally at Holbrook Hills. They can also be used on pillows, valances and panels.
I can think of at least ten other embellishments but I’m going to save some for the rest of the alphabet !
What’s your style …………… Plain Jane or Jazzed up ?
