At Bazaar Home Decorating, we can help you come up with the perfect custom curtains, shades and drapes using fabric from popular vendors like Robert Allen, Duralee, Fabricut and Kravet to complement your interior decor. Some modern window treatments you may want to consider implementing so your home looks trendy and stylish in 2013 are:

Customizable valances – Whether you’re jazzing up cafe curtains or using this as a stand-alone window decoration, dressing up your windows with customizable valances is a fun way to match your home’s design scheme to the different seasons. Don’t be afraid to go a little crazy with these, since they’ll only stay up temporarily.

Metallic fabrics – Believe it or not, metallic is in. By layering these silver, gold and bronze hues with sheers, you can really transform the look of a room while still sticking with neutral shades.

Roman shades – This window treatment is both functional and elegant, and a great way to bring some colors into a room. If you love dramatic patterns, roman shades are a wonderful choice, since their clean lines allow the fabric to pop and make a bold statement. There are even motorized options for these shades, which means you can easily control the amount of light and privacy.
