Designing a Window Treatment....

Thought I would share with you a drapery job,
that I recently completed for a client.
Here's the naked windows that were in need of some draperies.
My client's house is decorated with an Asian flair.

I came up with the perfect window treatment design
to compliment her design style.
Take a look....

The asymmetrical design  framed the fireplace.
I choose two neutral tone fabrics for the window treatments.
One of the fabrics was a solid, with a crinkle texture. 
The other fabric had  tone on a tone leaf design.   

The jabot had a handmade tassel that I designed and made. 
It was the PERFECT accessory to dress up this window treatment.
To make the tassel I first cut a square from a piece of wood.

I have learned to use many "MANLY TOOLS"
 over the years of constructing window treatments. 
After the square was cut,
 I painted it with the same color as the fabrics,
 and  then wrapped it with some  decorative black thread. 
 I added a tassel that I made from some speciality yarns. 

What do you think?
I even surprised myself at how it come out!!!

It's always exciting to see the transformation take place.
My client was thrilled and I couldn't have been happier.

Next time you are dressing a NAKED window in your home,
take a look around your room.

 Think about how you can dress your window
 with a style that compliments your rooms decor.

This is great. Curtains can sometimes be oppressive no matter how pretty they are - they feel less claustrophobic like this.
