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?

Drapery pleats, many styles to choose from!

Often my clients ask what type of pleating I would recommend for their draperies. My answer would be, first, it depends on the general style of the room, and also the personal preference. In general, we recommend Ripple folds, Grommets, and Euro pleats, for a modern settings, Pinch pleats, Goblets pleats, or cartridge pleats for traditional style rooms, and ruched and pencil pleats for both modern and traditional rooms.

How about adding some embellishments to your treatments, think of the sparkle of glass, the beauty of bead trims, the opulence of metallic, and the earthiness of wood trims.

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!
