Hi to all my devoted readers! I have been MIA on my blog for quite some time. Partly because we have had two new additions to our family, two adorable grandsons, and I have enjoyed spending as much time as I can with them, and partly because I have been fortunate enough to be quite busy.
Over the past several months, I have been designing quite a lot of custom window treatments. If they say that "eyes are the windows to our soul", then Windows are the "eyes of a room". Windows allow us to connect with world outside.
Window treatments make a "huge" difference in a room! They control the light and privacy, and bring color, texture, and softness to the room. Widow treatments also control sound.
Below are Before and After photos of this handsome fully-paneled study with new window treatments.
The client needed privacy since the study faces the front of her home, so we installed textured, lined woven woods. The panels and cornice were made from F. Schumacher fabrics in a modern version of a houndstooth pattern in gold, green, red and brown.We trimmed the panels and cornice with a brown suede fabric, also from F. Schumacher & Co.
We re-arranged the furniture so that now desk faces the street and added recessed ceiling lights because, as you can imagine, a paneled room can be quite dark.
I went by yesterday to take quick look and snapped an after photo. (please excuse the quality as this room has not been lighted for professional photography as all interiors need to be).
What do you think?
Thanks for checking in!
