Extravagant Draperies

These window treatments I just installed are quite extravagant!
Pole swags and jabots over ruffled panels, all in silk!
There is 4" beaded trim applied to
pale melon silk pole swags and jabots.
They hang from  burnished gold poles with carved finials.
The melon swags hang over penny colored silk panels.
The panels have 18" ruffles and an organza
 sheer metallic banding with peach beaded soutache braid.
Ooh la la~
I had the walls painted in BM Bradstreet Beige on top
with BM Brookline Beige on the bottom.
The ceiling is Sunset Pink.
The client's furniture has a pickled finish
 which looks great with these
soft beiges, melons and coppers 
that hint at the pinkness in the furniture.
 Elegance with plenty of details
A center ascot marries the two pole swags on the double window.
Center style jabots are used on the ends for a twist.
They fan out showing off the melon and amber crystal trim.
This treatment has the WOW factor,
which is what my client desired.
Maison Decor Style!

  1. Wow is right! I can only imagine how many hours you spent on these curtains. They are truly works of art.

  2. I so agree, WOW. They are gorgeous and the fabric and trims are just stunning. It definitely changes the room. Fantastic. Hugs, Marty

  3. Wow - they are spectacular. Just beautiful.

  4. Simply beautiful. Very nice work.

  5. How elegant! Can't believe pickled can look sooo good! My kitchen cabinets are pickled and I am chomping at the bit to paint them white. You did a beautiful job!

  6. These would be at home in Versailles! Beautiful!

  7. These draperies are so opulent and sophisticated. I just love the beaded trim.
    Very elegant.


  8. Amy,

    Exquisite! I love this
    WOW effect...great design.
    I know your client is

    Hope you are doing well...
    Have a great weekend,
    Stephanie ♥

  9. Holy, Moly, what a DIFFERENCE! The drapes are so elegant... yes, they do have a definite "wow" factor. I think your wall color choices and the use of melon and copper in the fabrics are just perfection. GORGEOUS!

  10. Oh my GOSH Amy... they are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! What a great color scheme to bring the pickled wood finish out of the 80's-90's and make it a positive feature! These trims are just exquisite - the burnished gold is the perfect color for the hardware, the finished 'after' room is absolutely to DIE for. I'm sure your client is thrilled, she will have the most beautiful dining room in town for her Thanksgiving feast! You did a fabulous job...
