It is interesting to see how some designers' imaginations are piqued by window treatments. Some designers may add a little visual interest with a striking pelmet or valance, while others may swathe a room with swags, jabots, and flourishes alike. Elaborate window treatments are obviously not for everyone, but interesting ones certainly make a room a lot more fun. If copious amounts of fabric are not your thing, then perhaps one of these designs might spark some interest.
