X is for Patterns

The ABC’s of window treatments………….
I couldn’t think of one window treatment word that started with “X” so I’m going with an X pattern, also trellis and diamond.  This bedroom has a great trellis pattern fabric.  Notice how they used draperies on the large window and roman shades on the small ones.  We do this quite often because a lot of times the bed is so close to the window and you might not want fabric behind the night stands.

Roman shades are a great choice when you want to really see the pattern, you never know what it’s going to do once you gather it.  This quarterfoil fabric happened to make an interesting pattern once it was pleated.

Bamboo trellis is still one of my favorite patterns.  It looks great on chairs and cushions.

This Serena and Lily X bench is upholstered in a diamond pattern.  They are classic and I  don’t think they will ever go out of style.

I’m in the process of my staircase renovation and this is the carpet that I’m having made into a runner.  Hopefully, it will be finished next week and I can share it with you.

I’m coming to the end of my ABC series, If you have any ideas for “Y” please feel free to suggest them.

Custom window treatments can be the single most important element in pulling together your decorating scheme.

Nice tie in to "X" Tammy and that first image was a great choice: serious impact!

Y is for "Y (Why)Choose BG Custom Windows" ?

Creative thinking with the "X"! I love trellis patterns. That first picture is really nice.

Maybe you could do a "Y" in the world would you do that? and show bad window treatments, sort of a "Drapery Don'ts". Can't wait to see your stairs!

ohemgee, Eddie and Jaithan visited my blog !
Thanks for all your suggestions for "Y" . Alicia, I love your idea but I don't think I'm snarky enough to pull it off ! Although I do have one perfect pic for it, makes me giggle just thinking about it.

I'd never tire of these patterns.

How about "yardage" for "Y".
