Country French Drapery Panels

It’s always fun when a fabric really strikes a client as something that is a very authentic expression of their likes and personality.  So it was with this whimsical rooster print for an Edmond homeowner.  It quickly formed the building block for her Country French Drapery Panels.

Although Kirtz Shutters were the first step for her window treatments throughout the house, she was looking to add some color and personality with custom drapery.   A large amount of our rooster fabric would overwhelm the quaint breakfast space, so a gorgeously textured large plaid was used as the body, with our rooster fabric sewn into the panel as an attached valance.

A colorful stripe is accented throughout the treatment.  It borders the bottom of the attached valance, and the tiebacks that hold these panels in place.  It can be found once more across the room in the cafe panel on the door.

Incorporating both our rooster fabric and a fun stripe these aren't your average tiebacks!

By hanging these panels from medallions, we were able to keep plenty of fullness in our fabric between each window in the bay, and the tieback’s keep visibility at it’s maximum by keeping the fabric off the louver.  All of the medallion hardware is from Paris Texas Hardware, and all drapery panels were custom fabricated by our Oklahoma City workroom.
