A drapery treatment with shutters for a girls bedroom in Hinsdale Illinois

Draperies for a girl’s bed room in Hinsdale Illinois!

A little girl’s bed room gets a sweet window treatment, in Hinsdale Illinois!

I get a call to design drapery treatment for a two years old girl, and here are the client’s requirements:

  • A classic design that will work now and will work later when she is older.
  • A design for the room that can be easily changed in the future to an extra guest bedroom.
  • A child safe environment.
  • A treatment that will be energy efficient.

Take a look:

How did we meet our clients requirements?

Here is the answer:

  • A Kingston valance was selected for it’s classic look, the pink silk, gives the room a feminine feel, it is very simple yet elegant.
  • The style works for now, it will still work when the girl is older and it will make a wonderful guest bedroom for the future with minimal changes.
  • Shutters was the choice for privacy, energy efficiency, and child safety! That is correct, since there is no cords to worry about injury and it meets the child safety requirements.

Shutters for a girls bed room in Hinsdale IL!

Shutters were selected as a window treatment for this little girl’s bedroom in Hinsdale IL. With shutters there is no cord to worry about injury or an accident, it is durable and provides insulation. The shutters were the first layer, then we added side panels and a valance to personalize the room and add warmth. The valances were trimmed with self cord to give a clean  finished look.

Window treatment and bedding for a guest bedroom for a Hinsdale home!

 

Our client in Hinsdale, Illinois wanted a country-style bedroom.We have used the room you see below as a sample. The room was designed for our client who resides in Naperville, and the project was done a while ago. The fabric selections, style and colors were based on Door county style.

We have achieved the country look by using painted antique furniture. The patch work quilt and pillow shams were the clients own items and we used them as our base for the design. Mint and lime green, tangerine, and slate blue were the colors for our scheme. Using two sized checks for the body and the trim gives the valances a fresh look and a touch of whimsy. the upholstered head-board in white canvas, trimmed in the tiny checks added to the general country feel of the room. Adding pillows provides coziness that will welcome any guest!

As for our client in Hinsdale, we are in the early stages of selecting fabrics and drapery design. We will share with you the room as soon as it is done!

Drapery details can transforms the usual into an extra unique!

Our client from Hinsdale Illinois, hired Gailani Designs for draperies and valances. The client needed designs that are elegant, and within a set budget. The style of the home was traditional with an apparent french touch.

Below is a valance created on a budget, though the details provided a touch of simplicity paired with elegance!

Black and white Toile, used as the main or the body of the valance while a tiny black and white checks was used to cover a large button, and for the cord on the top to add a finished look. The insert in the pleat matched the sunny yellow paint of the wall!

Here is the definition of Toile from Google Dictionary:  (Toile is a fabric, from the French word meaning “linen cloth” or “canvas”, particularly cloth or canvas for painting on. The word “toile” can refer to the fabric itself, a test garment (generally) sewn from the same material, or a type of repeated surface decoration (traditionally) printed on the same fabric. The term entered the English language around the 12th century)
