Following Through...and a few other windows
I have completed the silk drapery panels for the faux "re-finished" Antique Drapery Rod Hardware. Bobby and I installed these panels and the hardware in a beautiful dining room in the Dothan, Alabama area. The panels have a goblet pleat detail....no extra trim preferred by this client, but the panels and hardware together add all the design needed to finish this room. Also included in the photographs are window treatments we completed and installed for a couple of guest bedrooms. One guest bedroom window showcases natural heavy weight linen panels with Euro pleats at the header and a black grosgrain ribbon trim sewn onto the lead edges. This small detail of black is a great accent...and to note, the drapery hardware and ceiling fixture are made of black wrought iron. The second guest bedroom has a beautiful arched window. The client chose a bronze twisted iron drapery rod with small iron rings. The silk panels have a shirred header and are attached to the rings with drapery pins. The silk is a very unusal color of bronze with crossthreads of royal blue. The ceiling fixture, an antique bronze chandelier, completes this room.
"Cottage and Cabin" is my collection of designs for your home and garden. I am a designer/seamstress, and I truly do what I love and love what I do. I enjoy all aspects of home decor, especially cottage style furnishings and designing window treatments and nurseries. As much as I love sewing, I also spend lots of time redesigning and painting old furniture and salvage pieces.
