Windows to the World
Windows are our lens to the world outside but window treatments shape how we see our interiors and the home environments in which we live every day.

Uniquely Yours Interiors of Tampa, owned by Deborah Castellano, provides custom window treatments including drapery, designer drapery hardware, motorized shades, shutters, cornices and Tableaux decorative grilles for your home or office.
Their products and services come with over 30 years of Deborah’s expertise in custom window treatments. They work together with you, inspired by your ideas and personality to create the perfect treatment for your space. Uniquely Yours Interiors is committed to quality interior décor and the unique nature of custom pieces. Clients value having a made-to-order drapery with quality fabric exclusive to designers. Window treatments add a special flair to your home, office space or vacation home.
“Everything is custom made. Here, nothing comes off the shelf,” said Deborah, who first gained her window treatment skills working for Sears before venturing out on her own. She has honed and expanded her knowledge base, having served hundreds of residential and commercial clients, many who come back again years later for redecorating as well as referring friends, family and colleagues.
Uniquely Yours Interiors of Tampa serves Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties. In-home consultations are available by appointment. They bring fabric sample books along and other product samples so you can visualize products and materials, and they also bring lots of ideas.
“Drapery – not so much full drapes as much as side panels to soften a room – are probably most popular right now, followed by motorized shades, and shutters are probably the third thing,” says Deborah, adding that drapery also absorbs sound with tile flooring. “I don’t think shutters will ever go out of style, they are so classic and this is Florida, after all.”
Also popular are blackout drapes for master bedrooms or for media rooms, as well as sunshades and roller shades, she said. They also have a large selection of woven wood shades, Zebra shades, and sheer shades to choose from. Motorization options are available on most products.
While windows are our lens to the world, Uniquely Yours Interiors is also a portal to custom products, such as bedspreads, headboards, area rugs and upholstery fabrics. This provides their customers with a one-stop shop for all their decorating needs. Deborah also maintains strong professional relationships with craftsmen such as woodworkers who can build banquettes and custom seating for your home or office.
