Drama-tic Difference!

A favorite client felt her the window treatments in her dining room needed some updating and I was happy to help her. We began with ruby red embroidered faux silk fabric that sparkled in the light of the chandelier, lined and interlined for body and durability. We decided to use a French pleat heading and English hem, a style not seen too frequently here in our corner of the Pacific Northwest. The piece de resistance was a gold-toned wood rod and rings that complemented the fabric and chandelier wonderfully and fit well in the bay alcove. 

When installation day came, down came the dated valance and cafe curtains, and up went the new rods and panels. Voila!


And after...

An elegant new look for a beautiful bay window.
