Style Secret: Crisp Window TreatmentsBring in balloon valances, billowing draperies or elaborate finials, and a transitional room instantly feels overdressed. Yet if you leave windows bare, you risk casting a chill over the space. Treat windows elegantly but simply: basic panels, bamboo blinds, neutral Roman shades. Look closer: Layering understated curtain panels over natural blinds or shades, as in this bedroom, is a nearly foolproof way to add depth and texture. The draperies add just enough visual weight without being obtrusive, and the shades keep them from feeling too airy.
