Never underestimate the decorative impact of a leafy green houseplant in a window vignette. Case in point: the colorful hanging plant we spotted on @blushhome. Suspend a woven macramé-style holder from a curtain rod to score a similar look at home.

2. With a commanding curtain rod

Why settle for a so-so curtain rod when you can have a stylish one instead? Upgrade your windows by hanging your Barn & Willow drapes from an eye-catching curtain rod, like the clean-lined matte black one we spotted on @em_henderson.

Barn & Willow recently launched our own line of hardware as well! Get Emily's look with our Flint Satin collection of rods and finials. 

3. With lighting

A little lighting goes a long way with window treatments. Upgrade the entire ambience of a room by stringing a few sleek strands of string lights around your drapes or shades to create a warm and welcoming scene, like we saw on @jennasuedesign.

4. With a decorative tieback
