Windows form a focal point in most rooms. Walk into an empty room, and your eye is instantly drawn to the windows. Decisions about what window treatment to choose are often based on practical considerations: the function of the room in which they are situated, the architectural style or shape of the window, the style and colour of other furnishings within the room, the choice of materials available - and, of course, your budget. Window Style looks at some of these issues and shows that by carefully considering them, you can choose a style that will suit your window, your home and you. The book demonstrates the myriad styles available today by dividing them into eight distinct chapters: contemporary, classic, eclectic, romantic, rustic, retro, global and children's rooms. In each of these chapters there are detailed suggestions for adapting your preferred style to fit different shapes and styles of windows - so that, whatever the architectural style of your home, you will discover how to achieve your chosen look.
