Modern Draperies

The client’s style is modern. She likes simplicity and strives to find unique items for her home. The Baker dining set was purchased years ago for a modern urban home. The challenge was to create contemporary-style window coverings to complement a space with traditional touches – such as the crystal chandelier that came with the house – which she was not ready to change.

The client wanted privacy at night and semi-privacy during the day, to diffuse a less-than-desirable view of a brick wall. She wanted formality and said she loves metallic, sparkly fabrics and décor.

Allure from Lafayette provided the privacy and semi-privacy she was after. Several of its fabrics have shimmery, metallic characteristics. One nice discovery was that the mounting space was perfect for an inside mount, the client’s preference.

The depth and texture of the drapery fabric were a perfect choice. The cut-outs gave it a unique look, and the color provided enough contrast full Dining roomDining roomClose upAllur shades and brimar finialsto be interesting but not so much as to distract from the room’s other focal points.

The client absolutely loves the fluttering effect the draperies have whenever the air conditioning is on. (I had noticed air registers on each side of the windows, and I knew the fabric cut-outs would move when air circulated around the fabric. So happy the client appreciates my vision!)

Award Wining Draperies,

These Custom draperies had won the 2nd place International award at the Vision annual design competition!

The category of the competition was the creative use of drapery hardware and trim.

 

Imagine my surprise when I saw this window for the first time! My first thought was, “It is going to be a challenge installing any treatment for this window!”

The client expressed her desire to have the window treatment as “open” as possible since her family likes the light and the beautiful view of the lake. She also said she likes swags. Her third request was to design the window treatment with the chandelier in mind. And she also requested that the color of the fabric complement her existing furnishings and the beautiful Persian rug in the room.

A textured sheer fabric was selected for the cascading swags in order to keep the window open, as the client requested. Layered side panels sweep down from the second tier of the window to the floor, with a slight break to give definition to the window and visually support the swags. The first layer is interlined silk, and the textured sheer used for the swag comes over as a second layer to create a visual connection. The soft mango color of the fabric was selected because it beautifully complements the client’s furnishings.

The hardware was created by connecting several wrought iron pieces from the Helser Brothers Artigiani collection. The pieces selected resemble the chandelier; the crystal pieces were carefully selected and added to create a unique design which looks perfect with the chandelier!

Simplicity coupled with elegance! Draperies for a Downers Grove client!

Simplicity coupled with elegance!

Graceful, elegant, side panels hanging from metal rods and rings, the design is simple but what made it so beautiful is the soft texture in the fabric, the color and how it blended well with the rest of the room, the soft folds and how they fall nicely, and the beauty of the hardware in terms of its style and color. When we installed the draperies last week, our client said, this is all what this room needed!
