The Smart Approach to Window Decor is more than a book of window treatment styles-it is a book that teaches the reader how to select a treatment with the discerning eye of a professional interior designer. It shows the reader how to change or enhance the overall style of a room with window treatments, provide privacy without sacrificing the view, create a realistic budget, and how lifestyle considerations can influence choices. With 278 beautiful color illustrations and 159 gorgeous photographs, it also thoroughly provides a reference for numerous styles of curtains, draperies, shades, blinds, and shutters, as well as swags, valances, and cornices.
