Draperies for a Piano Room Plainfield IL

“Piano Room” was the project we created for our client in Plainfield. The teenage daughter plays the piano, and the room needed to be serene and comfortable so the entire family could fully enjoy her performances. The room had walls with a faux finish that was a mix between suede and a pearl texture! Just lovely! It was in a gorgeous neutral color of off white and had a beautiful shimmer to it. The baby grand piano had a glossy black finish. Those were the design elements that I had to work with.

The window in the room had a shade with a shimmery fabric, which we had installed two years ago. Now it was time to finish the window with draperies. Three fabrics were selected: At the top, a ten-inch-long section of embroidered cotton in a design of black, grey, off white, and taupe circles. Then we added a three-inch black border. The rest of the panel was striped fabric. Again, we used black, grey, off white, and taupe.

When it came to drapery hardware, we selected glossy black to complement the piano. We selected rings and finials that have white diamond-like stones. The wall facing the entry had three framed black-and-white Parisian images, in taupe/silver frames. Two black chairs with white, black and gray printed upholstery were placed on each side of the window. WOW! Even I am impressed that the room turned out as beautiful as it did – and I was there every step of the way. Imagine the client’s delight when people see the room for the first time!

New draperies for a Plainfield home!

We just installed this gorgeous swag drapery treatment in a beautiful Plainfield home!

The treatment was for the dining room, and here was the clients desire:

  • Formal, elegant, classic style, that is not trendy and will not go out of style for a long time.
  • The treatment must help the room look larger.
  • The client preferred sheers over blinds for semi privacy.
  • The treatment must give the feel of opulence.

This was the proposed illustration for the treatment to help the client visualize the look before purchasing:

Her exact words were ” I am speechless”

A girl’s bed room gets an interesting valance!

When I get the request to design a child’s bed room, I get really excited!!!!

Recently I got a call from a Naperville resident to design a valance for his 10 year old daughter, he mentioned that his daughter is into sports and very athletic, she is not much into pinks and frills, she likes her window treatment clean and simple.

He also mentioned the need for shades to keep the sunlight out, to help his daughter to sleep in on weekends and Holidays.

The valance design consisted of four separate parts connected together with lace that resembles athletic shoe. Each part had a curved edge on the bottom of the valance to add that softness and femininity.

Two shades (Room darkening, Applause shades by Hunter Douglas) was provided to keep the sun away as well as providing saving on the energy bills, which came as unexpected bonus to the dad!

Scary Windows will not scare us!

October is the season of cold weather, vibrant colors, apple orchards, pumpkin picking, and Halloween! While your children are dressing up in fun and scary costumes, take some extra time this month to dress up the scary windows in your home.


I’m talking about those difficult, large or odd-shaped windows that don’t have an easy fix when it comes to shades and blinds. Don’t let corner, bow, bay, octagon, arched, trapezoid, or high windows trouble you! There is an effective and affordable way to dress every single kind of window and we are not afraid to take up any window challenges you may have for us!


The window treatment you choose for your more elaborate décor projects should accentuate the natural beauty of that window and its view. You don’t want to hide the architectural details of the window’s design. Work with the shape, don’t hide it!


Here are some tips to wake you up from your window nightmares and get you closer to the home of your dreams:


1) Hard-to-reach windows don’t necessarily need to be dressed since they are usually too high to impede on your privacy. If there are light control issues, i.e. if the sun hits too harshly, look into motorization!


2) Skylights are beautiful assets to any room, but they need to be covered to prevent any harmful rays from destroying your furniture. Again, adjustable shades are ideal here. Look into remote-controlled shades, or simple cellular shades that can be opened and closed with a long wand.



3) Most shutters and blinds can be made to fit any irregularly shaped window. Just call in an expert if you aren’t sure of what to do. We are readily available to help you find a solution that suits you!

Do you want to get your home ready for the Holidays? It is not too early to start now!

It’s only September, but if you want your home ready for the holidays, the time to start thinking about window treatments is now!  Before meeting with a professional, start an idea file for yourself; gather colors you like, magazine photos, advertisements, articles, etc. into a folder. Eventually, a pattern will start to emerge in your creative thinking. This will make it easier for you to convey your tastes and your dream vision to those working with you on your window project.  Stop by at your local magazine stand, which is sure to carry some decorating and interior design magazines.  Go forth and clip away!
