Roman shades are a simple and classic way to adorn windows. Bamboo Roman shades are popular for a natural or Asian décor, but fabric Roman shades are more traditional.
Fabric Roman shades are made from a single panel of fabric. A sting is run the length of the fabric so that when the cord is pulled, it raises the shade in regularly spaced panels. Sheer fabrics can provide easy mood lighting. They filter bright sunlight so that it is warm and soothing. Roman shades look great in children’s rooms. Pick a bright, playful colour to liven the room, but can be pulled down easily for your child to sleep. You can also have extra fabric in the panels for a billowy, playful look. Roman shades in the rest of the house, however, usually look best in a neutral color or pattern. The shade should not distract you from the rest of the room. Tailor thin, flat fabric folds for an elegant look, or use fuller “tear-drop” folds for a subtle embellishment.
You can combine fabric Roman shades with another window treatment. Keep the shades in a neutral color, and surround them with more elaborate curtains. Or make Roman shades look more finished by adding a fabric-covered board at the top in the same fabric or a complement.
Smocked Heading Drapes
For the best visual effect of a smocked heading, we recommend the heading of the curtain to be stationary. Therefore the top of the curtains should be drawn together and fixed together permanently using a curtain hook in the center of the track or pole. Then each curtain can be swept back and held back with a tie back.
Smocked curtain headings look very complex to achieve, and therefore many don't attempt this intricate, diamond-lace look for the top of their curtains. The smocked heading is so intricate it deserves to be the focal point of the curtain rather than any pattern detail on the fabric. The smocking shows up better when a plain fabric of medium to heavy weight is used.

Swags and tails can definitely make the ultimate statement when completing the end product. You have the versatility of sheer, translucent and total blockout. Sheer swags & tails can be draped around any decorative wooden or sleek contemporary pole.
Tab Top Drapes
Tab top curtains offer simple elegance for every room in your home.

Triple ( French) Pinch Pleat Drapes
The best hanging method for your triple pinch pleat heading is a decorative curtain pole or curtain track using drapery hooks. Triple (french) pleat headings are simple, yet extremely elegant curtain headings. Use a fabric of medium weight so the pleats are not too thick or bulky when made up. The groups of 3 pleats are spaced apart. They are pinched together with a simple stitch at the base and fan out at the top. The base could then be accentuated with a covered button. This is a formal, crisp heading. It works best with other soft furnishings that are tailored and exact in their appearance.
