The clients were open to change.
The First element to be selected in the design was the beautiful embroidered aqua fabric.
|Before , dresser with very out dated mirrors|
|I couldn't resist Quilting the fabric for the center of|
|After, Room is much lighter and open feeling. When the top of the dresser is better|
accessorized this area will be complete.
|On the throw pillow I cut out one|
aqua oval in the center and replaced
it with the velvet of th comforter.
Because the loose curtains were being replaced with more tailored cornices and roman shades. It was necessary to make sheers that were attached at the bottom as well as the top. Loose sheers would get caught up in the romans when they were put up. On the other hand my clients like to take advantage of fresh air on temperate nights. Having the shades attached at the bottom in the traditional manner would make it impractical to remove them except for occasional cleaning. I was able to resolve this problem by holding the sheers down with large cup hooks at the bottom and when the window is open the bottom rod will rest on cup hooks put 3/4 the way up the window.
|After, Windows look much more tailored|
Now the windows look much more tailored. My clients have daytime privacy and can open the windows easily. The bold stripe used in the gantt roman shades was also used on the dust ruffle and on the pillow shams. Just enough to liven things up without taking too much attention.
|Trim painted the softer hue of the velvet|
As with all my jobs there were compromises and the finished job is one I am proud of and my clients will enjoy at least as long as they have their living room.
