Windows: Simplicity is Key(5 of 7)

Simplicity is the key to replicating a chic-feeling room. McIntosh isn’t a fan of cascades or swags; he typically does drapery side panels on a rod. If you need to add height for a low, squatty window, try a tailored valance with side panels. Take draperies all the way to the ceiling or crown molding for a heightened look. Keep it simple and rich looking with window treatments in the same color as the walls. In a chic hotel, heavily lined drapes create total darkness when drawn. Yours should feel dramatic and lavish in natural fabrics like silk, linen or hemp. Contrast lining adds a special touch — when drapes are tied back you glimpse the pretty lining fabric.
