5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant reference for miniaturists! 25 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What an excellent book! As a seamstress for many years and also a professionaly trained curtain maker I'm always on the look out for reference books to give me ideas for various projects. I'm also a keen miniaturist with a large collectors quality dolls house and purchased this book to use for that purpose. Be warned - there are no photos of finished items or 'how to do' instructions but for anyone trained in curtain making it will give you good ideas as it is chock a block with coloured sketches. You would still need a good knowledge of curtain making and comprehensive instructions from elsewhere to make some of the more complicated designs but if you just want a book to give you ideas, then go for this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea Book for Window Treatments 11 Mar 2006
By Virginia Allain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This fifth edition has all the sketches in color. Just to give you an idea of how comprehensive this is, there are 19 pages showing valances, with five per page. I love this book, as it really opened our minds to the variety of styles available for windows. No more boring windows.
There's even a section for draperies, swags and valances used with beds.
I particularly liked the section "Windows With a Challenge" that showed solutions for such issues as an air conditioner in a double-hung window or dealing with arched top windows.
This has two index sections in the back. One is the usual word index and the other is a 38 page visual index showing the windows in black-and-white thumbnail sketches.
It's terrific, not just for professional decorators, but for all individuals wanting a new look for their home.
(I hope you find this review helpful, and if you do, please click yes.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Interior Designer Reccomended! 15 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have seen the 3rd edition of this encyclopedia. It was a fabulous reference guide. It is NOT for people who are making curtains themselves, but for those who wish to update the look of their window treatments. As an Inderior Designer, I reccomend this book as a reference guide to many styles of window treatments.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF WINDOW FASHIONS: 1000 DECORATING IDEAS FOR WINDOWS, BEDDING AND ACCESSORIES is a wonderful picture reference guide for designers when planning a room. It is an easy way to locate the perfect window treatment you are searching for to complete a room and to show the customer an idea of the finished product. It has many types of styles in each category of fabric window treatment and includes many kinds of pillows, bed coverings, etc.. This book includes more styles than I have seen anywhere in any one book. It is wonderful if you are looking for drawings of many, many, many kinds of window treatments.

5.0 out of 5 stars a 'must have' for decorators and seamstresses 16 Dec 1999
By betsieg@qwestinternet.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I now own 2 copies of this book as I am constantly loaning it out and cannot live without it for more than a day. It helps my clients to decide on window treatment ideas and because of its extensive pictures, it can replace hours of thumbing through magazines etc.
