The cost of custom window treatments is one of the hardest to accept parts of the design process, in my experience.  A lot of people are floored when they get quotes for dressing up their windows and while it’s SO important to add this element to a room, you don’t HAVE to go crazy.  There are a lot of affordable options out there, but many may leave you wanting a little more.  Enter The Merry Window. You pick from a selection of fabrics (their samples are FAB as they have the lining materials paired with them too) and the type of pleat you want and the size (they have a guide on how to measure) and you get a custom look delivered to your door for less than custom cost. And in you enter “elements” at checkout you”ll get 10% off!


I have some in my own home- the laurel pleat organic linen shown in my living room and the laurel pleat indian dupioni in my bedroom.

  1. Love love love!!! Question: Obsessed with your drapery hardware in the LR from West Elm, But what did you do for the rings? I don’t see matching ones on their site!

  2. Thanks Erin! Love your sponsors as they are usually companies I have never heard of and always welcome a new retailer to consider, especially when a discount is offered. When you first posted pictures of your windows (BR and LR), I noticed the treatments, because I too, live in a house built in 1936 and have a lot of the same structural elements. I don’t want anything fussy, bold or expensive. It’s almost like you read my mind on wanting to know the window treatments. So thank you.

  3. I have been admiring your drapes – thanks so much for sharing! Did you get the 50″ or the 75″ panels?

  4. Erin, I’m considering buy brass drapery hardware from Restoration Hardware. They are extension rods like yours from West Elm and I really like them, but I’m concerned about the rings catching on the extension. Does that ever happen, and if so, is it obnoxious? Would you recommend traverse rods instead? Thanks!
