This beautiful living room was transformed by the simple, but classic drapery panels.
Fabrics not only add dimension to a space, but they can unify the whole look of a room.
Custom Perfect Pleats
To get these pleats to hang the way we desired, I explored with some mock up options and then added some " tricks" to get the lead edge to curve back towards the wall.
Small details, like the 1/2" dark flange band, create a delicate but striking statement.
This versatile style drape can be made in so many ways. Here we did a linen in cream and cocoa with a 1/2" band in dark gray.
Hotel at Home
Room Darkening Treatments were the request for this room. Blackout Ripplefold drapes on a traversing rod were on the large window and a motorized blackout shade was hung hidden behind the cornice.
Where's the Stitch?
These ripplefold drapes are fabricated with a unique technique, so that the drapes have a clean and sleek look.
Grommet to Pattern
Note how all the grommets are located in the same place of the unbalanced stripe. You can't always pleat to pattern, but one should always try...that is why we call it "Custom"!
Hang it High
Ceiling mount is a great option when you have limited space to install a treatment.
Using similar fabrics, but in different style window treatments, helps create a unifying flow throughout the home.
Today grommets and rods come in so many colors, that you can color coordinate both if you should choose. This was from Design Elements Group in Brushed Nickel.
This fabric from Robert Allen was such a pleasure to work with and made into beautiful ripplefold drapes for this huge glass window.
To add color and soften the space, stationary embroidery drapery panels hanging from chrome rods with crystal finials were the finishing touch this space needed.
Louis XV Style
Ornate details and opulent fabrics create this one of a kind look.
Swing By The Chandelier
In order to get to the windows behind the shutters, these necklace swags and drapes were hung from Amore swing arm drapery hardware.
Putting On The Glitz
With so many beautiful trims available, why not add an understated touch of elegance. This Samuel and Son's Ajoure Beaded Border was the finishing touch to taking something from simple to Wow!
Let there be light
But please soften my boxy windows....Solution -2 story stationary sheer linen like drapes hanging from 2" wood drapery hardware and pulled back with medallions.
Different fabrics play off lighting differently. This polyester fabric had a beautiful opalescence that blended beautifully with the decor.
Stripe It Rich
These masculine stripe silk drapes are fabricated with an angle top. This allows the drapes to all break on the floor the same distance when pulled back.
To keep with the natural feel of this room, we used a linen like slubbed sheer. The angled drapes were hung from natural stained wood medallions.
Wine and Dine
To create more ambiance in this private wine room, layers of rich colors with simple patterns were used on these traversing sheers and drapes.
Pleat me to pattern, Please
Extra attention to details and perfect placement of each snap results in beautifully executed Ripplefold drapes in a rich embroidery linen fabric.
Using a 100% poly linen like fabric, soft blackout lining, and sewing a memory stitch to the back of the drapes created these perfect stationary ripplefold panels.
Unifying a look can be tricky when other patterns exist. In this case, the selection of the window treatment fabric had to complement with the rug and pillow fabrics.
The "Center" piece
A floating drapery holdback designed by Finishing Touches holds the drapes in the center of the window without compressing the fine details down the lead edges. The Drapery hardware was fabricated by Helser Brothers.
Fabric can be transformed into works of art. For this baby's room, I pleated the fabric to this pattern and then inserted a pink button in the middle of every circle.
