One may think that window treatments are boring and irrelevant, but as one of the most overlooked furnishing pieces, distinctive window decorations are looking to change this popular opinion.

Your drapes are not there to solely block out the light so you can sleep in a little longer on Saturday morning -- if you let them, they can change the mood of any room. This is achieved through material means; would you prefer wood? Maybe some plastic? How about the illusion of a beautiful cityscape or rather a high-tech, changeable and iPod controlled project?

Moms really know best, so listen when she tells you to get some new treatments -- although the ones mentioned may not be the ones she had in mind.
