    Great Idea Book for Window Treatments, March 10, 2006
    By 

    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.

    Interior Designer Reccomended!, July 14, 2000

    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

    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.
