We bought a house with existing plantation shutters. I would like to add some sort of window treatment in the dining room bay window. What sort of treatment works with plantation shutters?
Congratulation, Susan! Plantation shutters are a great value for any home. They look wonderful even without any additional window dressing. But if you want to add softness to your window you definitely can put some kind of fabric treatment over them. There are a lot of variations and the choice depends only on your favorite style. Choose fabrics and colors that work well with the entire room decor. You may add sheers or drapes just on the sides of the window or hang them over the whole window on bay window curtain rod. You can enhance the look of your shutters with one or several elegant scarves or put swags or valances on the top of the window. I have heard that fabrics over plantation shutters are very popular among those, who live in the South. So go ahead and use your imagination. You may visit these pages for inspiration and ideas:
