We began the home design by first selecting area rugs for the Family Room, Foyer and Living Rooms. The customer called for assistance exhausted from searching, ordering and returning rug selections trying to coordinate with her existing furnishings and light yellow painted walls. We presented many patterned broadloom carpet selections in her home with her furniture and lighting making the selection process simpler. The Family Room and Foyer carpets match and use a wool and silk broadloom field with a matching border.
The Living Room carpet has a patterned field bordered with two solid color carpets. The custom fabricated carpets are able to be sized to fit the room dimensions and coordinate with her existing furnishings beautifully.
Modern home interiors include custom window treatments completing the finishing touch of any room. We used a traditional swag and jabots drapery style fabricated with a contemporary sheer fabric and banded with a shimmering gold silk fabric. The small gold banding provides definition to the swags and jabots and highlights the pattern in the sheer fabric. This modern drapery design with traditional styling blends nicely with the home’s architecture is used throughout the main level rooms for a unified design.
Windows draped with beautiful fabrics, define the views, add warmth and character to complete the home’s design and provide acoustical softness. Drapery design takes time selecting the right materials and hardware to enhance your existing furnishings. When designing custom window treatments it is important to scale the treatment perfectly to the window shape and size or to the entire window wall, as in the Family Room with 3 windows across the back of the home. Here we framed the entire wall of windows using the jabots with long tails on the outer edges and short tails in the middle – notice that the short tails are perfectly aligned with the wall sconces creating a nice balance. The goal is to allow maximum viewing and just the right decorative element to complete your interiors.
Our favorite drapery fabrics are light, airy sheers with timeless design patterns as in this elegant sheer embroidered with gold and silver threads. Contemporary sheer fabrics have a soft elusive design and do not overwhelm a room as heavier fabrics of traditional drapery stylings.
