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:

Draperies for you home!

There are so many drapery styles you can select from for your home! There are many things you need to consider while planning your drapery design:

  • Your personal style, whether it is Traditional,Contemporary, Modern,Mediterranean or any other style. Also whether you like full length panels,valances, shades, or blinds.
  • Light control, and if you like to allow more or less light in! Generally people are concerned about their furniture and flooring from the damaging UV rays.
  • Privacy such as in the bedrooms, or perhaps less of it when your window opens to a beautiful view and you do not want to block it.
  • Your window limitation, for example, do we have enough room to have blinds to mount inside the window, do we have room to install a valance or a rod above the window?
  • The architecture of the room, and the shape of the window it self, is the window arched? What type of trim does it have? Is it tall or does it have a transom?
