So Simple Window Style is a comprehensive guide to choosing and creating perfect curtains, drapes, and shades for every style and shape of window. With photographic step-by-step instructions for every one of the thirty-five original projects, each design is a real solution to a real window problem, whether it is a set of floor-length eyelet curtains for a garden room or a pair of lavish double curtains for a period home. Interior designers Gail Abbott and Cate Burren provide a professional-style guide to choosing shapes, colors, and fabrics, while an extensive techniques section details all the stitching skills needed. Projects range from simple ideas that can be completed in an afternoon to complete curtain schemes; a throwover lawn curtain trimmed with beads adds charm in a couple of hours, while a set of classic lined Roman blinds with shaped valances provides lasting chic.
