Window Covering is more than just a window covering!

Seems like ages ago when what you hung up in front of your windows were simple curtains. Over the years though, so many incredible designs, styles, fabrics,  technology and innovations have turned “curtains” into the most elegant and personal statement you can make when it comes to home decor. With options like creative valances, sumptuous cornice designs, acres of fabric, gorgeous ornamentation, hardware or tassels, and the look and feel becomes pure luxury. The key is finding and selecting the perfect fabric to achieve your design goal.

 

Casual elegance can be achieved with textured fabrics. Shimmering silks, blends and new synthetics can bring an elegance that makes your rooms shine. Multi-layered effects help achieve depth at any window. Add fabric sheers, shadings, and blinds beneath custom-designed draperies and you’ll be making the ultimate décor statement.

Selecting the proper window coverings can be a daunting task. There are a lot of things that need to be considered; the architecture of the window, the style of the room, privacy, sun control, fabric type, function, and hardware. There are many options available on the market today and window coverings have never been more important and cost-effective.

Window coverings can provide energy efficiency in a home as well as privacy and security. They can protect your furniture, flooring, and artwork from the damaging rays of the dun. The cellular shade provides full privacy, blocks harmful UV rays, and softly filters in light for a beautiful effect. And the best part is that it comes at an affordable price.

 

The honeycomb construction of this blind allows heat to be trapped in its core keeping your room cooler in the summer and improving the efficiency of your air conditioner. In the winter, this blind traps the drafts, preventing the cold air from entering the room.

Window coverings take your décor to a new level. A naked window at night becomes a big black hole and can make a room feel cold and empty. Fabric on the window is an easy  add on, an interesting way to introduce pattern, color, texture, interest, balance, and beauty to a room’s décor.

 

Often clients say that they don’t want to cover their windows because they enjoy their view. Privacy and sun control aside, a simple, well designed window covering will actually frame the view, enhancing it while providing a certain look and coziness to the room. In my opinion, no window should ever be bare.

Burr Ridge living room gets a new drapery treatment.

A new drapery design was created for a traditional living room in Burr Ridge Illinois. The inspiration was a tapestry fabric from the Kravet collection, that was the base for the design. The treatment consists of an arched cornice covered in stripe silk fabric, and embellished with a bead fringe from Brimar.

The side panels are hung from above the cornice to create height since we had only an eight foot ceiling.

The side panels are pulled to the sides to add drama and opulence!

Draperies, last but not least!

Draperies might be the last thing that we think about, yet they are what finish the room, add warmth, and richness.

Whether it’s full drapery panels, valances or shades, we can create the look or mood we desire in any room by the type of fabrics or materials we use, the colors, the patterns of the textile and all the embellishments we add.

Full Draperies provide height and most of the time formality, valances are less formal, they are great in certain areas, like over the sink windows in kitchens, small window in a bathroom or in children’s rooms.

Here is a short video for you to see many styles of draperies and valances, Please let us know which one you like best.

Drapery details is what make them stand out!

We have heard it a million times before, and I am going to say it again: When it comes to design, it is all about the details. Take a look at the balloon valance below. The fabric is a beautifully, smooth silk that matches the roman shade. We added a ripe mango colored silk as a ruffle, then inserted a bustling fringe between that ruffle and the valance body. Don’t you think the results here are elegant and sophisticated?

Draperies for a little girl’s Bedroom in Chicago!

Draperies for a little girl’s Bedroom in Chicago!

Soft Sheer draperies were selected as the window treatment for this sweet little girl’s bedroom in Chicago Illinois.

The goal was to use colors that worked well with her bedding. Three colors of sheers were selected, the white, then the yellow green and the pink at the bottom. The three sections of sheers were separated by a trim braid  in matching colors. White pole and rings worked well with the white wood blinds.

The walls were stenciled with flowers motif found in the bed cover, the stencils have added that one of a kind custom look. The stencil work was done by Jo Ann Ketcik of Decorative Effects, Minooka, Illinois.
