Draw the shades, pull back the blinds, and open the shutters. Not many people consider window coverings and window treatments decorating priorities, but they should. Lighting sets the mood and tone of a room. After a night with open blinds and too much light, many people are ready to install window treatments the next day. The trick is to find which blinds, shades, or shutters are right for you and your home.
