Lace Cafe Panel Drapery Lend Nostalgic Feel to Nichols Hill, OK Home

After following the rich, dark home design trend’s of the last few years in her previous home, this homeowner was ready to lighten thing’s up a lot in her new home.  After a to-the-stud’s remodel, she was ready to start on her window treatments   As her home faced a busy street, a treatment on front facing windows was a must, but maximizing light was a priority in the design.

The unique, natural design in the lace pattern was not available for purchase by the yard, so finished panels were purchased, cut and sewn, turning them into the custom product the client had envisioned.

The Details:

  • Goblet pleats lend a bit of structure, and a bit more formality to the panels.
  • Shirttail hem complements the linear feel of the pattern repeat.
  • Pattern repeat was very specifically laid out to align with divided lights in window unit, minimizing visual distractions.
  • Fullness of dining room panels is 1 1/2 fabric widths to maximize light, and fullness of door is at 2 widths to provide a bit more privacy.
  • Inside mounted custom rods, with finished length at window bottom make panels feel light and airy.
This front door needed some privacy options,as it is on a busy street.
