BEFORE & AFTER: The Power of Drapery

Sue's Tips - Published November 1, 2010

BEFORE:  This bright and sunny familyroom lacked sophistication. Our client was leary of covering up the beautiful windows they had invested in, but something was definately missing in this room.  The bones were complete, down to the fine leather furniture.  The next step was to add “the jewelry”.

AFTER:  The end result is dramatic!  By adding these elegant panels to each window, we have effectively ”framed” the view.  The windows are now the statement the owners wanted while pulling the entire room together.  The simple roman shades effectively block the sunlight on bright afternoons and provide full privacy at night.  The decorative panels work double duty by adding beauty and elegance to the room while also cutting down on sound issues such as “echos” caused by cathedral ceilings.  This entire space has been transformed because of the window treatments!
