Lovely Modern Cafe Panels

A dear friend recently found her unlined custom cafe panels in shreds after only two years of use!  Although she was disappointed with the loss, she was ready to embrace a new look for her breakfast nook.  Off I went with fabric books galore to help her identify what this “new look” was to be.

After much consideration and debate she chose this lovely neutral geometric pattern giving her some flair, and an update, but working with the existing color palette in the rest of the open floor plan.

To do the door in the same pattern seemed a little overwhelming since it was so close so we did a coordinating solid with lots of slubs and texture and a band of the cafe panel material at the top.

It turned out lovely…. I love the more casual “french pleat”. It’s still tailored but has a more casual look to it.

* bonus** these cafe panels now have a “dim out” lining, meaning they should last as long as she wants them in the window. (but more about the importance of lining in another post)   I can’t wait to get started on  the rest of the house soon!

 

 

 

 

Lux London Shade in NW Oklahoma City

First things first… I adore this fabric.

So I was super thrilled when our homeowner picked it for a soft treatment to help create her master bedroom retreat.   She is a subtle gal, and thought she wanted a simple silk until she saw “it”  Yay!  So off the fabric went to the work room, and my Guru for all things fabric (drapery workroom) and I started hashing through the details… Even though this door is not typically used to head to the patio, the shade when raised needed to clear the top of the door frame.  The folds and fullness created when a London Shade is raised means… we needed to get that dude up there so that it is sure to clear.  The most logical place to mount was up high, up at the ceiling line, so the shade could be securely anchored to a header beam which certainly gave this room some drama!

The finished product……. (low lighting really obscures the details of how great this fabric and finished product really was,but *sigh* best I could do that day)
