“Nowtro”. It’s the word of the day. It represents things from the past that have come back. Hip-huggers, tie-dye, bangs and many other type fashion statements from our past come and go regularly. The window fashions world is no different. 2″ horizontal mini-blinds, cornice boxes, swags and roman shades have come and go many times over. Some of these styles though have become classics. One such product is an Austrian Shade. Here in Reno, with our connection to the Victorian era, we have seen this type of shade many times. I think of the old mansions here and in Virginia City as places that this type of shading would be completely typical. It has such amazing fullness of fabric, at about 3 1/2 times its length that it exudes luxuriousness. It is perfect for the home today that is looking for something that will provide a very comfortable feel. All that fabric that billows out toward you in the room just makes you feel good about yourself. Well, that’s how it makes me feel. See if you like the look for your windows. It’s not an inexpensive treatment, but like most things, you get what you pay for.
