We try to avoid drama in our day to day lives but love it when it comes to decorating ideas, especially window treatments. Dramatic window treatments are like the perfect accessory… the room works without them, but it is missing something; it feels incomplete. Fabric, pattern, color, trim and design all work in conjunction with one another to create dramatic window treatments that make a statement. The statement may be elegant, modern, playful or sophisticated depending on the design elements selected. No matter the style, there is a way to add drama to a space with the right window treatment.
