I paired the Pirouette shade with a wooden bench I picked up at an antiques shop near my mother's New Jersey home. (It's a perfect spot for my pooch Bulldozer's afternoon snoozes.) Pirouette shades feature PowerRise with Platinum Technology, a remote-control-operated motorized lifting and lowering system. Their soft fabric vanes appear to be floating, creating an airy ambience.

Maybe you don't have a bay window. Here is a tip for maximizing light in a small space.

These classic roman shades, made from Hunter Douglas's Bungalow fabric in ebony, add compelling contrast to the space. The UltraGlide single retractable cord system makes lowering and raising easy, which in turn protects the antique dining table, built by my grandfather, from direct sunlight. Formal yet versatile, Design Studio roman shades work especially well in an entryway, an entertaining space, or a dining area.

Window treatments transform a space-- like we did at this cheery breakfast nook.
