When it comes to the interior design of your home or office you can’t afford to neglect proper planning for window treatments. Sometimes, we walk into a space and know this question wasn’t asked. Before you begin styling a space ask yourself these four little words: what is my intention? Before you roll your eyes, think about it: how many times have you set out to create the perfect ambiance and what you ended up with didn’t exactly meet your imagination. We hope you’re inspired to plan the look of your home or office with some trending styles in blinds, drapes, and shades. Enjoy!
