Today I’m sharing a client project that I finished the draperies for a while ago, but couldn’t get pictures of the finished project until much later. The drapery panels that we fabricated have a little extra bling added to them, that makes them really fun!

This room was originally a sitting room connected to my client’s master bedroom.
This is a before picture of the front window. My client had already purchased and installed drapery hardware for both windows in the room.
Here’s the other window in the room.
We chose a beautiful silk fabric for the drapery panels, that complements the wallpaper. When I was ready to install the draperies, the sitting room was full of furniture and other household items that the family was trying to keep away from their new puppy. So, I didn’t take pictures the day of the install. There was barely room to get to the windows!
Soon after the drapery installation, my clients went through a huge renovation of their house. It turned out to be a bigger renovation than they originally thought it would be. One day, while my client was gone, the workers doing the renovation filled this room with more furniture and items from the rest of the house. The loveseat that was in front of the window above was pushed up against the wall and window -smashing the silk draperies.
So, after the renovation was finished, I went back to try to fix the draperies that were smashed. I was very surprised to find out that the room was not connected to the master bedroom anymore, and that it had been turned into their daughter’s bedroom! She is away at college most of the time, but this would be her new room when she was home.
I loved the furniture and bedding that my client picked out for the room. It’s fresh and fun, and still perfectly complements the wallpaper and the draperies.
The panels were going to be gorgeous in the silk fabric we picked out, but we decided to add a little pizzazz to them. So, I added a covered button and bead tassel to each of the goblet pleats when I fabricated them. The little extra bling on the panels really goes well with the new furniture and accessories that were added to the room.
What do you think of this before and after?
I’m joining these parties!
