Drapery Drama pt 2
Continuing our look at window treatments from my projects, let’s just dive right back in.
In a glamorous Oakland condo owned by a doctor who wants to host amazing dinner parties, I used gauzy fabric with geometric shapes and patterns in fun, bright colors to allow plenty of light in, contrasting the dark flooring and wall colors.
Both the dining room and the living room have matching drapes because they’re one open-plan space. The colors also tie the rooms together, for an elegant, energetic experience under stunning glass chandeliers.
We created a sumptuous sanctuary for a busy Bay area couple, with fabrics and furniture that’s very sensual in nature. Notice the gold banding on the floor-length draperies, a luxury detail that really ties the space together by repeating the accent color of yellow on the purple drapes.
The draperies are blackout blinds, an important detail for restful slumber in a room with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Pacific Heights Pop
Working from home has become the standard for many people. But it doesn’t have to be boring! Here at a Pacific Heights living room/home office, we created a color story with gold, dark blue, and red.
The woven grass shades allow light and shapes through, to avoid feeling isolated from the outdoors. Plus, I love this unusual bench seat! However, if you need to focus, you can draw the crisp gold floor-to-ceiling draperies for a distraction-free workspace. The best of both worlds.
