The color and shape of light you allow to come through your window fashions can liven any room immensely. Kingston valances provide a dappled light that make your interiors sparkle, even in winter when the sun is lower in the sky. Both can warm the color of light when you choose a tone that compliments your décor, reflecting another layer of beauty into your rooms.

Where do you start when you’re given the go ahead, and the budget, to design the window treatment of your dreams? Cindy and Dick Ralston of Shawnee, Kansas will be starting in their living room and dining room working with the team at One Stop Decorating to bring out the best that Exciting Windows! has to offer to help make their home more beautiful. They are the winners of our Michael Payne $10,000 Exciting Windows! Makeover Sweepstakes.
Ideas and thoughts are flowing and the designers are hard at work creating multi-layered window fashions that highlight the rooms and the Ralston’s lifestyle and personality. You can see by these BEFORE photos, that Dick and Cindy have enjoyed the lasting beauty of custom draperies in their home for 22 years, and Cindy says “The colors, the room, the windows, us – we’re ALL ready for a change.” They’ll also incorporate functional needs for light control, privacy and tying together the exterior views because these windows are highly visible on the front of their home.
Winning the Sweepstakes is a “dream come true” for Cindy and Dick who are both recently retired and at last able to spend time freely enjoying their home, their grown children and grand-daughter and various volunteering causes important to them. Think how much fun it will be to show off their new beautiful custom draperies, shutters, and shades to friends and family – and everyone following this blog – soon!
Pictured here are the BEFORE photos. The designers are busy consulting with the Ralston’s and with Michael Payne, celebrity designer for HGTV.

ExcitingWindows! can show you how to dress odd shaped windows, sometimes called sunbursts, or arched-top windows. True arched windows are designed as a single window with a round or curved top, while arched-top windows are smaller windows mounted above a door or double-hung or fixed window. Both are popular and used according to the architectural and design that are desired.
With the increasing popularity of single arch windows, most of the major window fashions manufacturers now offer an array of blinds, shades and shutters made to fit standard size arch windows.
Look at arch window coverings from a top brand such as Hunter Douglas, or Graber to find a wide range of cellular and pleated shades in both light filtering and blackout materials and colors galore. Motorized operation is a great option if you have a very stall sunburst window.

Before entering this industry, I was completely unaware of the vast number of options available to consumers when it comes to window treatments. My knowledge of window fashions was basically limited to the window fashions I saw in department and retail stores … standard blinds, horizontal blinds, roller shades. Little did I know there was an entire world of window fashions that existed beyond my limited experiences. Only after immersing myself in the window-fashions industry for the last eight months have I come to realize the importance of window treatments … from energy savings, to light control, to privacy, to aesthetics. In fact, I’ve found myself fascinated with the subject … realizing that whenever I enter a home (whether for the first time or the hundredth time), I find myself immediately drawn to the window. Bare windows stick out like a sore thumb. While this is obvious to those who have been immersed in the industry for years, it is not so obvious to consumers. Many consumers have no idea the options they have when it comes to what they place on their windows. Most consumers may not realize the value of window fashions until they are presented with the facts—window fashions really do have the ability to transform a room’s design from “great” to “extraordinary.” As a window-fashions professional, it’s your mission to enlighten them. Educate them on energy savings, on temperature control, on lighting aspects, on how adding this one element to their design can literally transform a room into a work of art. Here at Window Fashions, we’d like to know how you incorporate window fashions into your designs. What strategies do you use to get your clients interested in window treatments? And what have you learned from your clients when it comes to their views on window fashions? We want to know!
Window coverings seem to be the bane of my decorating existence. On HGTV they make it look so simple but for me, finding decent window coverings and actually getting them installed has been a monumental task. A task that is still not complete, even though we’re inching up on FOUR years spent living in this house. I don’t know if it’s just us being home-improvement idiots, but hanging curtain rods always turns into a ridiculous affair replete with curse words, extraneous holes in the wall and stripped drill bits (it would appear that all our doors/windows are framed out in titanium). Last year we finally hung curtain rods over the kitchen window and the adjacent sliding glass door and ever since then I’ve been on the hunt for appropriate window fashions. The slider is a problem all its own: it needs full-length curtains because we get the dreaded fish-bowl effect from the house that backs up to ours. I found some plain but serviceable insulated curtains from J.C.Penny, which finally arrived in February and have been sitting in their bag at the base of the window ever since. Ahem.
