20190927 171811When choosing a window treatment, there are several parameters that will make your selection easier. It doesn't take long, even in a new home to figure out what needs to be accomplished by your window treatments.

  • Privacy ? How opaque does it need to be? Do you need it in the day, night or both?
  • Light control? Do you want to cut down glare on your tv or do you need total blackout for your bedroom?
  • Frame or mask a view? Do you want a beautiful frame around your water view or do you need to hide an eyesore in your neighbors yard?
  • Insulation?  Do you need to cover a chilly window or deaden the sound in a large cavernous space?
  • Decorative? Are you trying to add pizzazz or some color to a dull space? Are you  trying to add some architectural interest? 

Whatever you are trying to achieve, there are dozens of choices in Hard and Soft window treatments that can perfectly suit your requirements.  Uninformed choices can lead to expensive mistakes.  Working with an expert, like Ellen Sew N Sew,  will ensure you make the right choice!

Sheer ScarfSwags, once the mainstay of window treatment haute couture,  have bitten the dust and been replaced by more relaxed scarves. 

Scarves  can be draped on poles or over holdbacks placed around any shape of window. Only your imagination limits the possiblities.

Banding, as seen on this sheer linen-like fabric, in a contrasting color defines the beautiful cascading hem. 

Although it appears to be a straight panel of fabric, it actually has a shape built in to allow it to hang in a more pleasing swag than just a straight scarf. Weights added to the low points of the jabot section helps this light weight fabric hang just right.

It is all these little details that make a simple treatment like a scarf truly beautiful!
