Draperies and window treatments are used for a variety of reasons. Many are used to filter the rooms light, to insulate from the cold, to repel the heat and to create privacy. Modern window treatments are meant to provide a whole lot more than those of yester years. They are functional and aesthetically pleasing. Blinds and shade don't only fall under the category of window treatments any longer they are also considered interior design decor.
Windows can really define a room if utilized properly, but that may not be your intended result. Effectively using window treatments to tone down the source of distraction and compliment the interior of the room. Again, this is done by creating interactions between room elements even after the sun has gone down.
Victorian window shades are often made of bold, medium to heavy weight material. Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.
