Trending TAPES

Cowtan & Tout's (L-R) Celine Tape, Carlyle Tape, Porter Tape, and Madison Tape

Let's talk about
window treatments.

If you are beginning 
an interior design project,
or redecorating a room,
you may be in the market for
new window treatments.

If you start cruising Houzz
or Pinterest for inspiration,
you will quickly determine
that when it comes to
window treatments
less is more.

Valances, swags and frills are out.
Tassels, beads, and dangling trims
are no where to be seen
(which is sad I know).

So what is in?
Tapes and banded trims.

The selections for your project
Just when you think
you have found the perfect option,
a new line pops up
and takes your breath away.

I'm not kidding!

 Take a look.
