Melanie Murphy Interiors’ Top Five Design Mistakes #3

Ignoring the Windows

We see it all the time.  Our clients run out, purchase the furniture and maybe a throw pillow or two…and they stop there.  The result is a room that feels very unbalanced.  Window treatments add light control, privacy, beauty and vertical balance to a space.  They make a room feel larger and add interest to a space.

Whether you are using ready made window treatments or custom, do not mount even with the Window Frame.  Add height to your room by using draperies longer than 84″ to lift the eye.
