The room of the month!

An  Installation took place last week in Burr Ridge IL. The room was medium sized and well lit, however the furniture was a little over sized and too many pieces were used. That made the room seem even smaller.  Here is how the windows were dressed to help the room appear bigger, and more spacious: the walls were painted in a warm, light taupe, and the treatment was kept simple. We raised the panels as far as possible, keeping the proportions in mind, and the color of the drapery fabric was the same color as the walls, lowering the contrast. Both of these things delude the eyes into thinking the room is larger than it is.

The client expressed interest in ripple fold draperies in place of sheers and blinds for privacy, and she wanted to create the feel of a five star hotel. I believe, she got it!

Barbara Barry Designs with soft,calm, and serene Palettes!

I find myself drawn to Barbara Barry’s designs and philosophy. She believes in transforming peoples lives through design. Her soft palettes, mostly taken from nature, with clean lines, and minimum use of patterns allow us as humans, she believes, to create our own patterns in the room. All that makes her designs so perfect for city dwellers, as well as suburban living.

The environment that we live in has an impact on how we feel, and strongly affects our well-being. Therefore having a well designed space that reflects our style, with the colors patterns, textures that make us make us feel good, safe, happy, and contented, is very important, and that is my job! I often feel that I am the therapist for your home. I help my clients to improve their spaces, whether it is by rearranging the furniture, adding a few pillows or decorative accessories, repainting, or adding new window covering. A simple make over or a major one, we assist in the project from start to end.

We offer free design consultation, and now free phone consultation to help you begin! Call us (630)420-0800.

A Dining Room Design, with the wow factor!Naperville Illinois.

What was the client’s desire for this beautiful dining room?

I get a call from this wonderful client that I met in the mid nineties and been working with her since then. Her house located in Naperville, Dupage county Illinois, saw three different changes since then. She likes to update her house with new designs about every five to six years, and she gets so much joy each time with the transformation.

This time it is her dining room, her dream is to have a dining room that she could use every now and then for her, her husband, and the children when they come for visit.

She wanted a dining room that is formal enough for guests, yet it is user friendly for every day use.

She loves painted furniture, therefore we had her oak colonial dining table to be faux painted and distressed with several layers of paint to give depth to the piece in addition adding distressing where it looked natural from wear and tear of years of use. Her draperies came out looking stunning! We have selected together a cotton fabric printed with fruits and a color scheme that works with the rest of the house. The fabric was a classic, though what made the draperies so special are the banding on the leading edges of each panel, a solid yellow cotton was selected that worked amazingly well with the main body of the drapery, the faux finished table and the wall paint.

Grommets were inserted along the length of the panels, right on the banding and a braid fringe was threaded through the grommets! We both were so impressed by that look and felt very proud! Now that what we call ( THE WOW FACTOR)!
