10 Gorgeous Window Treatments

There are only so many ways to skin a cat, so to speak — where did that expression come from, anyway? — and only so many ways to dress a window.  That being said, today’s roundup of gorgeous window treatments offers a few variations on the theme, updating classic roman shades and blinds and finding a magic balance of frilly and chic in several sets of sleek, ethereal curtains.  When a quick update is needed and a ground-up renovation just isn’t in the cards, something as simple as new drapes or shades can change the tone of a room as dramatically as it changes the light.
