Draperies with that special touch!

We have all experienced it… An outfit that makes you feel terrific! Just wearing it makes you feel like you’re walking on air. You’re energized, confident and joyous!!!

Sometimes an ordinary outfit becomes extraordinary just by throwing on a unique piece of jewelry, wearing silky scarves, or having one-of-a-kind purses or shoes! You create your own fashions that are totally unique!

That is what I do with draperies. An unusual combination of colors, textures, fabrics, unique hardware and voila….. a WOW window treatment that is exclusively you!  
Take a look at the video below, you will agree that the use of drapery tapes and trims can add an amazing touch!

Choosing accent fabrics for draperies

Last month I used the same fabric for draperies, except each drapery design had a different accent color.

Take a look below, and notice the piping in the cornices, in one we have used a teal silk and the second one we used red cotton. Each room had a totally different feel, just by changing the accent fabric in the drapery!

Do you like swags and cascade treatments? Hinsdale Illinois

Do you like swags and cascade window treatments, Hinsdale?

If you do, let me share some tips with you:

  • The swags got to be deep (as a rule, I like to be able to insert my fingers in the folds and have it totally in) that is why more fabric is needed to give a richer look.
  • Have at least 5 folds, we prefer 7 or even sometimes 9 folds per swag to give an opulent feel.
  • There are many different looks for swags, they can cross each other, open swags on poles, pointed bottoms, multiple sizes in one treatment and so on, you need to share your thoughts with your designer or he or she will discuss the look you are after to help you pic the right style for you.

Drapery tie back can make a huge statement!

Every element in the drapery’s design is important and it can make a definite contribution to the over all look of the draperies.

Take for example the tie back: a simple drapery panel can be turned into a magnificent one by adding a special tassel tie back or a decorative embellished one.

Tie backs could be made from natural materials, such as raffia, dried flowers, tree barks, ceramic beads, and materials of similar nature for that special look that one might desire.

Pleated fabrics, ruffled fabrics, trims, fringes, pleats, buttons, grommets, bows, and ribbons, to name a few ideas can be added to the tie back to make them unique!

Let’s look at the slide show below from my portfolio to get a few ideas!
