Draperies with Graceful Design!

Draperies with graceful Design!

Creating draperies for a home in Orland Park Illinois was a great experience for me as a window covering specialist.

The client wanted designs for her entry, living room, and dining room. The spaces were open to each other, therefore, I needed to pay attention to how to select the materials, texture, color, drapery design, and the over all design to work with the existing furniture.

The client also indicated that she wanted the sense of gracefulness, opulence, and Luxury.

The selection of the fabrics, the trim, and similarity of the over all design just met the client’s requirement!

Below are some images of the three spaces with details and closeup photos.

Custom draperies!

The advantage of having custom draperies is having the freedom to select what you desire and not be restricted by what is available on the store shelves.

For example, take a look below, the client wanted a contemporary fabric, have the draperies go all the way to the ceiling, have the fabric and hardware colors in the gray color family, have a two finger pleat for a modern look, have a black-out lining since it is a media room, the black-out will help in giving extra darkening feature to the room.

Once you experience the beauty, the flexibility in choice, and the fine construction of custom draperies, you will not think about store bought curtains again.

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.
