Question
DOING LIVING ROOM WITH BLACK/WHITE AREA RUG,ANTIQUE MISSION TYPE DARK TABLES. NEED A WINDOW TREATMENT IDEA AND ANOTHER COLOR AS WELL AS A PUNCH COLOR. THANKS,LYNDA

Answer
If you like mission styling, you'll probably prefer blinds (wood) or shutters for a window treatment.  That's in keeping with the style.  If you prefer fabric treatments, or a combination of both, opt for a fabric that has black, white and your accent color incorporated into it.  

Black, white - the obvious color punch is red and it can be any shade from cranberry to orange.  If you don't care for red, opt for a bright icy shade of blue.  Sort of baby blue with some depth.

Regards,
Jenny

Expertise

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
