Below is a proposed window treatment for our client from Naperville, Illinois.
The swag treatment was chosen for it’s grand feel, especially we are using a combination of burned velvet with silk! The central swag, the cascades, and the panels, all will be made out of the burned velvet. the other swags and the lining of the cascades will be out of silk. The hardware was selected from the Paris Texas collection.
I am thrilled and excited and can not wait to see the treatment installed!

What I mean by rebirth is to give new life to your rooms! Even if you are satisfied with the look of your spaces, it does not hurt to try something new and exciting!
Some ideas for different changes can be an add-on, a partial change, or a total make over! An add-on can be a new accessory, for example changing the hardware of a treatment, adding a banner, swag, or tassels. A partial change could be having new shades and replacing the old, dated ones with new fresh ones while keeping the draperies or valances. Or perhaps you are due for a total room makeover! Whatever the case might be, it is always a good idea to bring in some changes to your space to add joy, energy, optimism, and happiness into your life.
Here are some ideas to think about that will help in creating an updated look:
Think reupholster: Give an old piece of furniture a totally new look by not only changing the fabric, but also changing the shape of the arm and the back. You can add a skirt, or add nails, buttons, cords or tassels! The picture below is of a set of dining chairs with new upholstery. We gave it a smart, new look by having tapestry seats and velvet backs. The old chairs were boring with off-white, ordinary fabric.
Think new updated finish: Give an old table or chair a new updated look with faux finish. See the video below for a table that was oak to match the chairs, but now has a totally updated look with a new finish.
Think slip covers: Slip covers are in fashion now and you can have a fun slip cover for one or more pieces of furniture to create a new ambiance in a room.
Think of new throw pillows: A group of new custom pillows on your sofa, bed or chase can bring new colors, textures and add patterns to any room.
Think reversible:You can try drapery panels that have two faces and you can reverse them as needed. You can have a valance with two faces and use Velcro to attach it to a board, and when you are tired of one face, rip it off and reveres it. The throw panels below have a burned brick color and are lined with a champagne off-white color. Our goal was to use the brick color for now and if the furniture changes in the future, the neutral color will still work, or if the house is put on the market for sale, it will help the prospective buyers to visualize themselves using the same draperies for a while without going through new purchases right away.

Think attachable: Have you thought of adding banners, flags, swags, bows, jabots and any other piece you can think off? I have designed draperies with changeable banners to go with different rugs, to change with the seasons, and my client loved it! Take a look at the pictures below and tell me how many variations you can think of when you look at the treatment. How many can you make for picture A and how many for picture B? I have 5 Starbucks gift cards with $5.00 on each and I am sending it to the first 5 people who respond with the right answers! Have a cup of coffee on me!
What comes to mind when the word romantic is mentioned? Personally I would think of Diamond, sparkle, shimmer, flowers, sheers, vibrant or soft shades of red, orange, pink or purple or any thing that might suggest romance!
As far as draperies, the design as well as the materials used can add a romantic feel to any space whether it is a bed room or not.
The type of fabric and the combination of textures, trims, and finishes, what will set the mood of a room.
