Beyond Beautiful Window Dressing

In my last post I showed you a drawing that I presented to my client to help them visualize what their window design would look like. The drawing was to scale and featured the actual fabrics and hardware to be used. Well, here it is installed. This beyond beautiful window dressing makes a statement on my client’s two story living room window.

Contemporary Ripplefold Drapes

Contemporary ripplefold drapes by Window Wear Etc.

More and more of our clients are loving the tailored look of ripplefold drapes. In this photo of a recently installed drape we used an embroidered sheer from Fabricut with a geometric design and lined it with a standard drapery lining. Notice how evenly spaced the pleats are when fully extended. Today there are many options of traversing hardware with ripple-fold carriers to meet all design needs for contemporary, transitional or traditional decorating. We used a Kirsch ripplefold traversing pole with contemporary finials.

In case you aren’t familiar with ripplefold drapes, they are actually flat panels with a snap tape stitched to the top of the drape. The top of the drape is then snapped into each of the carriers of the traverse rod creating the ripplefold effect. This is a very nice look for any room. This contemporary ripplefold drape was installed on our client’s kitchen slider as a one-way stack right drape. They can also be fabricated as a split drape.

Goblet pleats are a great alternative heading for drapes and offer a more formal look. Details such as buttons or tassels can be added to the bottom of each of the goblets to personalize your design. As with all drapes, there are many design opportunities to add banding, trim, Italian string for draping, buttons, and more. We are here to help you design the perfect treatment for your home!

Drapes and sheers for your dining room window treatments

A pair of drapes and sheers have an elegant timeless look that will soften the look of a room and allow light to filter through as shown in this dining room window treatment. Notice how an elegant rod adds a little jewelry to the room. The panels can be made stationary for color, or as in this case the lined drapes will open and close to provide additional privacy and warmth to the windows. Like this?
