Trim It Yourself

Custom-made curtains can be expensive and time-consuming, if you make them yourself. But it's easy to dress up bargain white panels with bold craft-store trim. You can glue it on, or machine-stitch if you're handy with a sewing machine. Photo courtesy of Project Nursery

Mad Plaid

This built-in window seat is a charming spot to read and opens up for extra storage. A striped Roman shade adds a layer of masculinity in this boy's bedroom. Designer Lina Khatib

Custom and Cost-Effective

Budget-friendly roller shades get a quick and easy update with pretty polka dots. Paint them on, or use peel-and-stick wall decals. The striped and gathered valance softens the window and will look appropriate after the polka-dot motif has been outgrown. Design by Barbara Tabak of Decorating Den Interiors

Scalloped Detail

An angled awning is an elegant, unexpected touch in this sophisticated girl's room. Its scalloped edge is a feminine counterpoint to the tailored plantation shutters, and its structure offers a cozy sense of shelter above the window seat.
