As you already know window treatments can add the finishing touches to your room. They can add that special touch of color you need to enhance your room.
On the right is a picture of my client Kathy's new window treatments. The long draperies visually help to "bring the ceiling down" to help combine the top of the room together with the bottom of the room. They also help the room to feel like the ceiling is not floating away.
Many times homeowners do not realize they have to decorate a house with 10-20 feet tall ceiling differently than they do with an eight or nine-foot ceiling. The high end vertical walls and ceilings can be very positive and very negative. The room can feel so spacious and give the feeling that the room is actually larger than it really is because the ceilings are so tall.
With the tall walls you also will receive a echo factor within your room. The more fiber you have in the room the better to reduce the echoing. You can find fiber in carpet, area rugs, window treatments, fabric upholstered furniture, pillows and anything with texture.
Long over sized draperies not only help reduce the echo but can help accent your color palette. Oversized pictures can also help you accent your color palette and decorating style. With tall ceilings you need to rethink using your horizontal pictures unless they go together so well that they can "stack" one on top of the other. You need vertically shaped pictures when you have such tall ceilings.

Notice the ties around the left drape. This is an example of how to "train" the drapes to stay in place better. The ties stay on the drapes for approximately 48 hours and then they are removed.
