Paint has a well earned reputation as the easiest, quickest and cheapest way to makeover a room. There’s something deeply satisfying about the instant gratification and the transformational impact gained from painting the walls in your home.

Enter: window treatments.

Never underestimate the power that a set of roman shades, gauzy sheers or classic curtain panels have to up the ante in your living room design. Window treatments serve as a visual focal point and work double time to express personal style and provide privacy for your family.
