Drapery details!

Often I am asked, what makes your drapery designs different? My answer is, I pay great attention to the details.

  • The fabrics: finding the right fabric and mixing it with an accent.
  • The hardware, often we design our own.
  • Details that adds the punch.
  • Extra ordinary trims, fringes, and tassels
  • Make sure the draperies enhances the over all design of the room.

Below are some ideas of drapery designs by Susan Gailani:

We have designed an outstanding draperies for a home in Burr Ridge IL. The room has an eclectic feel in general and the home owner expressed a desire for special hardware that is unique with crystals.

The home owner also emphasized that the beautiful window should not be covered, and by using sheers we gave her just what she wanted.

The unique wrought iron hardware with crystals was custom designed to the client’s taste which also worked very beautifully with the overall window design.

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.

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?
