Product Description

From the Author

This book is here to inspire you.
There are hundreds of photographs of all sorts of room settings, window shapes and treatments, all intended to give you inspiration and ideas for your home or project. You may reproduce exactly what you see in the picture, curtains, swags and tails complete. Or you may draw only on the simplest element, just a way of trimming, or holding back a curtain.
After all, dressing windows is crucial for the success of a room. Not only for its aesthetic appeal, but for comfort and practicality. There is always more than one way of dressing a window. Use this book as a starting point to understand the options and to find the ideal solution.
As with all our books, 'Curtain Inspiration' has arisen directly from our own experience as curtain makers. We started making curtains more than a decade ago, and realised what a variety and range of window treatments we have creted over the years for different clients. 'Curtain Inspiration' shows a good deal of that range and variety.
The book is divided into four clear sections.
'Room settings' shows different ways of treating the windows in all the main rooms of the home. 'Window types' illustrates a variety of ways of approaching a wide range of window shapes. 'Curtain styles' demonstrates the range of window treatments from simple curtains and sheers to elaborate swags and tails. 'Blinds & shutters' shows you how you can stylishly dress a window with something other than a curtain and also completes the book.
Curtains are infinite in their possibilities, but whether you live in the town or the country, in a flat or a house, embrace the traditional or the modernist, there will be something for you in 'Curtain Inspiration'.
Catherine & Rebecca, Redbourne, September 2001
Note: for guidance on how to make many of the window treatments featured in this book, help is at hand in another of our publications 'The Encyclopaedia of Curtains'.

From the Inside Flap

There is inspiration for all in this beautiful book, overflowing with pictures and ideas, from halls through to bedrooms, from pelmets to simple curtains.
The settings are hugely varied too, from town houses to classic English country houses and cottages, recreate the look exactly, or freely adapt the designs just as you wish.
The curtain photographs are accompanied by easy-to-read captions and invaluable tip boxes. They are further enhanced by close-up pictures which reveal the intricacies that go into achieving the look.
Hundreds of window dressings are here for you to choose from. All presented in this lavishly illustrated, structured and easy-to-follow book.
