Comments: A wonderful guide for the most creative window dressings
I love a window treatment design book that not only focuses on the window, but a room in its entirety. The curtain styles in this book are appealing in that they enhance the look of the corresponding room and its contents; they do not overpower. Curtains: A Design Source Book offers ideas to accomodate practically every window type and shape. Best of all, the results do not appear overdone or contrived: many simple looks with natural fiber fabrics . I am forever looking for decorating books to add to my home library and this book is a must- have. I move quite frequently as a military spouse and seldom find that all my window treatments adapt to my "new" dwelling. I look forward to creating interesting window treatments in the near future and Caroline Clifton-Mogg's books are my favorite references.

Comments: lots of pictures; little instruction
There are many well-done photographs of rooms and windows, but not enough detail and instruction for a Design resource.

Comments: Great Visual Ideas
I thought the book had some really great ideas for window dressing but as an amateur trying to achieve the looks on offer, felt the instructions on making could be made easier. I had to find another book with easier intructions and follow the two books in order to make my curtains!

Comments: Curtains/A design Resource book
This book is great for anyone searching for ideas for a clean modern sophisticated interior. The design concepts are tailored for the transitional to contemporary home. It is not a resource for curtain construction.

Comments: An inspired and inspiring book!
I absolutely LOVE this book. I hardly ever read the text in decorating books--preferring to absorb the pictures and captions--but I actually read this one and learned a lot about the topic. Now I open up this book, look at a few pages, and then feel inspired to go and try my own take on some of the ideas shown. It gets me going for a weekend filled with projects!! One of the best decorating books I've bought (and, guiltily, I've got quite a stash.)
