Review:

I felt as if I were being told interior design secrets that had been kept from me for years. Curtains have always been something I thought should be left to the experts -- or at least to J.C Penneys. But who better knows what a room needs than yourself? Some of the projects I especially enjoyed were how to make velvet rose tiebacks and a stained glass window shade and how to add painted effects to your curtains with stencils.

From Library Journal:

Given the subtitle, the reader would expect to find a well-organized "how to" manual. Instead, Forbes, a London interior designer, has produced a lavishly illustrated book with imaginative variations of standard draperies. Experienced sewers will be inspired, but the instructions are given in such a disorganized fashion that amateurs will probably be a bit befuddled. Compared with Lady Caroline Wrey's The Complete Book of Curtains and Drapes (LJ 2/15/92) and Carol Parks's Complete Book of Window Treatments & Curtains (Sterling, 1993)-which provide, respectively, elegant window treatments and clear practical directions-this book falls short of its goal.
