Have you struggled to come up with the right window treatments for each room in your home? You want to have a consistent look throughout the home, yet be able to address the individual needs for each space and the individual styles of those living in the home. In this Summerfield, NC home, we took on the task of designing multiple window treatments throughout. We considered the privacy needs and individual style of each space, as we assured a consistent flow through the home.
Drapery for Child's RoomIn this customers son's room, our client wanted window treatments that would grow with him. Choosing something neutral, and character free helps to accomplish this. These drapes were made in a fun neutral horizontal stripe, that can easily be transitioned into teenage decor. These custom curtains were made with a blackout lining, and designed to close across the windows, providing a room darkening option for quality sleep. During the day, the drapery can be opened to let in lots of light for play.
Drapery for Guest RoomIn this guest room, we selected Helser Brothers custom iron hardware in a French pole style. This style hardware is sleek and stylish in its simplicity. The drapery are fabricated with a soft linen fabric complimented with a simple, taupe colored tape trim along the leading edges. This style of trim adds interest and pulls color from the room to the neutral drapery.
Window Treatments for TeenagersIn the customer's teenage daughters room, we designed custom, black out lined roman shades. The crisp white linen fabric is spiced up with a colorful woven trim along the bottom to coordinate with her fun, vibrant bedding. The trim is hand-sewn, so it can be removed and changed to a different color and style in the future, if desired.
Master Suite Window TreatmentsElegant and functional drapery were called for in this master bedroom. The room had light colored bedding and lovely blue wall. Our job was to select fabric to compliment the existing colors and style, while providing room darkening for sleep. We chose the same white linen we used in the other bedrooms and featured a tape trim banding that incorporated the pretty blues from the room. The drapery was made to close across the window and because we used a blackout lining, provide room darkening when needed. Once again we used custom iron hardware by Helser Brothers to make a statement and provide consistency through the house. For the master bath, we used Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shades. Their semi-opaque liner keeps the room light while still providing privacy. The fabric was chosen to compliment the room without distracting from the stunning copper tub! It is possible to highlight personal style, while addressing functionality and the aesthetic of the home. Choosing to have custom window treatments gives you so many wonderful options.
