The first upgrade came in the form of a new dining room set. My wife and I were so happy to upgrade from the old hand-me-down set that we have been using for many years. The new table (which now seats twelve) and chairs looked good but still there was something missing. So, we went on the internet to look at pictures of finished dining rooms and found some that included the most beautiful window treatments I've seen. I came to learn later these shades were called roman shades, which in the picture were combined with some lovely drapes. I just loved the elegant rich folds and fabric and the drapes made an excellent color contrast that really completed the look. I knew instantly that these were right for our new dining room.
Window treatments originally were made simply for functionality. Their function was to provide a necessary barrier against the elements in both the hot months of the summer and the cold of the winter. With today's modern insulated windows the original functionality of these is not really needed but they are still used for the purpose of aesthetics. Window treatments help to bring together the theme of a room.
First a little back-story: I love to invite my friends and family over for dinner. To me, this is one of life's joys. It is not just the food but the camaraderie, conversation and intimacy of this kind of social gathering. It combines some of my most favorite activities: eating, talking and personal connection.
