Drapes and Cornices Project


Here is another project I worked on this summer.

Slouch Panels with Tiebacks

Several years ago we dressed the windows in Box pleated drapes in a beautiful fabric when the client first moved into the home with their new triplets.  They had contrasting large brown cording at the top and 2 rows of brown buttons at each pleat.  Lots and lots of buttons.  That was seven years ago and the client was ready for a change.

We had recently fabricated drapes for the master bedroom and she really liked the style.

So we used the same style in the main part of the house.

We started in the living room and worked down the back wall of the house.  In the living room we used tassels to dress it up a bit more.  She is still deciding if she wants to use them in the rest of the rooms or not.

I also fabricated a pillow for her with the leftover trim and fabric as a thank you gift!

We then moved into the breakfast room area.

Then into the harvest room.

In this room we added Cornices over the end window and door.

To break up the Cornice and add a little extra something, we inset a beautiful trim on the face of the cornice.

In my next post I will show you how I applied the trim to the cornice.
