Dress up your windows with fabric accents. Shari Hiller gives you tips on how to make your own window treatments.
Shari Hiller kept the window treatments easy in this room by using scarves (a long piece of fabric with hemmed ends). For the long window, she tied a knot over the center curtain rod support, and then swagged it slightly over the rod--three times to the right of the knot and three times to the left. The smaller window is simply wrapped around the ends of the rod to conceal it.
Hiller also attached a matching rod to the ceiling just inside the door to hold more sheer fabric pulled back with a ribbon that resembles a dress sash as a gentle room divider. She sewed two panels together for the front and the back, and then sewed the two pieces together and added a rod pocket.
