I was happy to hear from a client recently who called to inform me she wanted to freshen up her master bedroom, along with some other rooms in her house. I had helped her decorate her main floor 10 years ago, and now, after going through some changes in her life, she wanted to make some changes in her home. This included selecting new paint colours for the guest bedroom, her daughter’s room and the master bedroom. But in addition to finding a new wall colour for the master bedroom, my client wanted to make the room feel more cozy. So the first thing I suggested was drapery panels for her window. (She had purchased the Luminette sheer blinds by Hunter Douglas from me 10 years ago.) She loved the idea, and I went back to my office to find the perfect fabric.
After searching my fabric books and not feeling satisfied that I had found the perfect fabric, I had an “ah ha” moment and knew that I had to come up with my own design of using three different coloured fabrics that I would combine to make the custom drapery panels.
When I presented this option to my client, she immediately said, “That’s the one!” In addition to the drapery panels, she wanted a new chair and ottoman for a corner in her room, so we selected fabrics for that at the same time.
Here is the end result!
The fabrics that I used were from Maxwell Fabrics and Unique Fine Fabrics. I chose the blue faux silk fabric to coordinate with the new wall colour, the gold to coordinate with the bedroom furniture, and the white fabric to match the client’s white bedding.
