One of our favorite projects is designing custom throw pillows. Finding just the right fabric for an accent piece is fun and is also sometimes challenging. Challenging is always more fun! This pillow made from a Kravet fabric was the perfect solution to bring all the elements of design in the room together. The blues, yellows and cream colors really make a statement with this traditional rustic home.

Designing draperies or any window treatment starts with a plan. A designer will ask you a series of questions:
- What is the character of the room - traditional, contemporary or transitional?
- What colors are you interest in using?
- What directions do the windows face?
For this living room in a North Dallas home we started pulling fabrics together with a color scheme of navy and cream and threw in a bright orange accent color. We combined traditional and contemporary fabrics for a popular transitional design. We abolutely love texture, so we added a "faux" vinyl which we plan on using on an upholstered cocktail table.
We used a Silhouette Shade from Hunter Douglas in the Neuveau Candied Coconut fabric on the windows that are on the front of the home. For the drapery panels, we used a navy and cream geometric linen fabric and used a chrome drapery rod with an acrylic finial. The panels framed and softened the window and added a punch of color.
Stop by our shop in Plano to see how our draperies are made, the linings we use and samples of our rods and finials. We will show you why we use the lining we do and educate you on the look of a quality product.
