Ask An Ex­pert

All you need to know about dress­ing win­dows.

Australian House & Garden - - Contents -

An un­dressed win­dow is like a dress with­out shoes. To fin­ish a win­dow in any treat­ment, be it blinds, shut­ters, lou­vres or sheers, is to re­alise the full po­ten­tial of your as­pect and your in­te­rior. As al­ways, think tex­ture and lay­er­ing – ma­te­ri­als are key. Match­stick blinds, slubby linens, floaty sheers and heavy vel­vets, even leather can make for a state­ment cur­tain. Keep hard­ware sim­ple and slim­line for a clas­sic fin­ish that won’t date. Con­sider whether you want your win­dows to be the state­ment or to frame the view be­yond and choose your pal­ette (bold or neu­tral) ac­cord­ingly. Send decor ques­tions (with name and ad­dress) to H&G Ad­vice, GPO Box 4088, Syd­ney, NSW 1028 or email H&G@bauer-me­
