Farm House Window Treatments

October 21, 2010

Went to a clients home today to install roman shades and ended up falling in love with the chickens.  Just look at the bird in the planter… walking up the porch of the house felt like walking on to a movie set (que chickens!).  If I wasn’t getting a new dog tomorrow, I’d march right out and get a few chickens but I am, so I won’t.

The client wanted window treatments that felt a bit old-fashioned without feeling old.   I didn’t want to distract from the view outside or call too much attention to the windows because the room is full of interesting things; good art, found objects and antiques.  We added the wooden valances and painted them the same color as the trim and layered with flat roman shades in an embroidered linen from Thibaut.  All of that added up to warm finished looking windows, rich in texture, but simple.
