Over-the-Top Window Treatments

Grab your chintz balloon shades—the ’80s are back. Or at least the preference for ornate window treatments are. “We’re doing a lot more fancy curtains than in the past,” says Jared Hughes, who is a fan of cornices and decorative lambrequins (like the ones he used this sitting room). “It’s a great look in neutrals or solids to give you an interesting feel and pairs well with more clean-lined pieces.”
