Good, classic choices. Sumptuous photography. I was not convinced that the claims for “Inspiring treatments for every shape and style of window – from cottage casements to modern picture windows.” was fully and accurately met; because much (but not all) of this book relies on the house possessing large rooms with floor to ceiling, or window seat height-to-ceiling windows. Overall I found inspiration in this book; most of what is illustrated looks like it can be made by a competant home-sewer.
