~ Inspirational Windows ~

At Young Design Group we specialize in custom window treatments and it is a primary focus of our business as bare windows are impractical. Windows need to offer privacy, shade from the outside elements and most of all, they finish your room beautifully. We offer a vast variety of decorative soft window treatments from draperies, side panels, roman shades and top treatments. We are also agents for Hunter Douglas and other high quality hard window fashion brands, and can offer advice on motorization throughout the home.

Young Design Group offer full home interior design and decoration
including product selection and purchasing.

Meet Cassy & Nikki

Cassy Young of  Young Design Group is an award-winning interior designer. Her interior decorating expertise has helped many people in the Athens region to achieve functional and luxurious spaces, from a single room to a complete home.

Interior designer Nikki Adams has a strong background in spatial planning. With a B.S. in Psychology and a B.F.A. in Interior Design, she employs both when helping her clients with their spaces.

A visit to our studio is an exciting excursion as you look at and feel the hundreds of fabric choices. The studio has several rooms where you can see the quality of the furniture and get to try out the different sofa cushions to make an informed choice. You can also see custom draperies and bedding, rugs, lighting and accessories.

Draperies & Curtains

Having the correct window treatments depend on several factors: the room, the shape of the window and its position to the sun, the style you prefer, and the drapery’s purpose.

Window treatments will last for many years and serve many purposes — they keep the sun out and the warmth in; they help protect your floors, rugs and furniture from fading; they add pizzazz to any room, completing the space.

They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who work shifts such as firefighters, police, or medical staff. Also, many fabrics are stain proof — perfect defense against kids and pets!

If you prefer a simple look, we can hang stationary drapery panels each side of the window, framing it, usually in combination with a blind or shade. Adding embellishment such as fringe or contrasting tape will change the mood of the room from formal to romantic to casual.

In a traditional home you may require more layers of draperies to achieve a sophisticated design. And at every stage Young Design Group will be taking the harsh southern sun into account.

Top Treatments

Full length draperies are not suitable for every application because in a kitchen they may get dirty; in a bathroom there may not be floor space. But in most cases Cassy and Nikki can design a top treatment that will soften the hard edges of a window, hide the mechanics of another layer, and to draw focus to the window.

There are several choices of top treatment to explore:

  • Cornice boards
  • Valances
  • Balloon shades
  • Swags & cascades
  • Lambrequins
  • Awnings

You can further embellish a top treatment with custom trim that will add an interesting and individual look to the finished product.

Blinds, Shades & Shutters

Whether you’re relocating to a new residence or enhancing your current one, your initial priority will be to ensure privacy by covering the windows. As you do so, you’ll likely begin to appreciate how the sunlight interacts with your carpets, wooden floors, and other interior decor.

Reach out to Cassy Young, our expert in window treatments, who will provide a comprehensive presentation of various blind, shade, and shutter styles. She will also engage in a thorough discussion regarding the advantages and disadvantages of each style in relation to your specific window placements.

Additionally, the Young Design Group can explore motorization possibilities, which are particularly valuable for homes with lofty walls and towering windows.


“I loved working with Cassy. She is a breath of fresh air – extremely professional, reliable, friendly, and skilled. We worked together to redecorate my playroom/den and I’m very happy with it. Cassy also came up with some great blinds solutions for that room as well as my master bedroom. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Cassy again.”

“Cassy did amazing with helping me redecorate and refurnish my home. She was so patient and listened to my ideas. She took time to coordinate and provide me options to choose which made things so much easier for me. We started the project earlier in the year to work with my budget by room and had a date to finish by end of year which she met. She is very talented and her work ethic and desire to please shows in her quality of work.”

“Cassy is very easy to work with and does a great job bringing items to you that fit your style and budget. Working with her is a great time-saver especially for those of us who don’t like to shop or don’t know where to go. She will pull it all together for you with samples and suggestions so you can plan for future projects as well!”
