Today’s Before & After shows how adding a simple fabric treatment to our client’s living room really added a lot of style and softness.

Before – Our client loves her Hunter Douglas Silhouettes that we previously installed to give her privacy and light control, but she thought it still seemed bare.

These Silhouettes have great functionality, and are even an excellent solution for the sliding glass door onto her deck!

She stopped in to our showroom and our designers helped her find the perfect fabric – an embroidered floral from Greenhouse Fabrics.

Together, the homeowner and our designers created a pleated valance and drapes with stationary side panels.  Since she doesn’t need the functionality of full drapes to open and close, we created these stationary panels to add the softness she wanted, but saved costs in fabric and full drapery hardware.  A 2 1/2″ Continental rod by Kirsch is used to hang the valance and panels, and voila!
