In 2011, our studio was filled with a wide variety of treatments. We fabricated updated swags to slipcovers, silk balloon shades to silk draperies, linen bedding and headboards to intricate drapery panels. I’ll share 10 of these projects with you. Keep in mind that I am not the best photographer and sometimes forget my camera, so I’ve missed out on photographing some of the treatments. But you’re in for a treat with the photos that I’ve chosen for this article.
Below are photos from three different rooms, designed by Carolyn Campbell of Carolyn Campbell Interiors. I so enjoyed working with Carolyn and working with her delightful client. The fabrics they chose were tactile heaven.
Switching gears, the next project was designed by Mitzi Maynard of Redo Home & Design. Mitzi chose Mexican coffee sacks for the Roman shades in a teenage boy’s bedroom and Media Room. I took the sacks outside to shake out the loose fibers and stray coffee beans, and to cut the sides apart. My dog, Lucy, chose her favorite sack and took a little nap. She’s so helpful! Coffee sacks are not for the faint of heart or the OCD client. There are little tears, un-centered designs, and smudges to deal with. But for the free spirit, coffee sacks hit the spot!
The next two projects were designed by Elisha May of Redo Home & Design. Elisha ordered slipcovers and window treatments for these projects. I always love working with the fabrics that Elisha chooses.
In another home, Elisha ordered updated Slipcovers for Parson’s Chairs. This fabric is from Vervain and was backordered for one year; worth the wait!
Lori Paranjape of Redo Home & Design asked us to fabricate some challenging treatments. Here are two of the rooms that were our pleasure to make. And talk about yummy fabrics … !
The next photo is of a “Beachy Bedroom”. My client’s son painted an awesome painting that reminded him of their home at the beach. The bedroom was borne from that painting. I really enjoyed this project; my favorite personal style. I purchased all of the linen fabric through RM CoCo.
And last but not least, I had the pleasure of working with a client whom I have not seen in a couple of years. This silk Balloon Shade was the perfect choice for the master bath. We lined and interlined the shade and added beaded trim. Lovely!
