going to great lengths

I had a drapery installation last week and I was reminded how much I love, love, love a simple panel. My drapery workroom knows me so well when I call her for an estimate, she knows exactly what I am going to say...a simple linen/cotton panel with grosgrain trim. Let's be honest, there's no need for a lot of frou frou trim, swag, and all that extra stuff. Bleh.

Window treatments are one of those things that I believe should always be custom. You can't make a Target window panel look anything like a custom made treatment. There's so much involved...widths, length, lining. All of those make a big impact. That's why I love a simple treatment. They are a splurge but will last a lifetime and different decor changes.
