Custom Drapes and Swags: The finishing touch
Designer Luisa Tchang approached us while working with her clients on a complete do-over renovation, she needed just the right finishing touch for the only window in the new master bedroom! The overall feel was to be soft, impromptu, and feel very elegant. The custom drapes were going to have to live up to the new finishes; gorgeous custom millwork, stunning marble tile and crystal which were already in place to set the stage.
Every custom drapery project comes with its own set of obstacles, challenges and call for creativity. This window presented us with a little awkward bulkhead that was in just the wrong place and had just the wrong sort of uneven quality that it absolutely needed to be covered up. So, on to problem solving!
Our list then looked a little like this: hide the ugly bulkhead, add luxury and elegance, create a soft and impromptu feel (nothing too structured or rigid), and glam it up baby! Check, check, and check. Louisa selected a gorgeous pale silk damask from Joanne Fabrics and a soft satin champagne for the reveals. We then proposed a swag valance with soft curves and delicate jabbots, decorative side panels with an angled hem and decorative tie back, all which would frame the window and the layer of pinch pleat sheer drapes which would be operable for privacy. Phew!
The look came together and the result was just what the designer ordered, the final finishing touch on a glamorous master suite fit for her wonderful clients, who were thrilled!
