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.

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.

 

 

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.
