It started with this fabric for the coverlet and shams:
We found the perfect coordinating fabric, a gold, slightly textured poly from Trend Fabrics. It looks like silk but is so much more durable.
Then we decided on drapery hardware, something less traditional, like the fabric, but in a forged iron to complement the style of the home.
All of the drapery hardware used in this client's home is from Helser Brothers. It's not just that they have attractive hardware, but their customer service is great. They really have a quality product.
Then it was time to send the client a proposal.
The chair was purchased from us previously. It's one of Candace Olson's designs from Norwalk Furniture. The client decided to add a matching ottoman, as you'll notice in the following picture.
It is difficult to get everything thing in one photograph! One detail about these goblet pleat panels is the way they are hanging off the rings. We didn't want the gap between the rings and the pleats that is usually there when using rings and pleated panels. There was very little wall space between the window and crown, and we wanted them to seem as tall as possible. The pleat was left open in the back a couple of inches so the ring would sit down almost inside the goblet. It is just a detail that sets custom drapery apart, along with perfect length and perfect proportions!
The beautiful bedding was made by Anita from Prairie Creations. The shams are reversible with the gold on the other side as shown in the drawing. We used a matching blue velvet for a small initial pillow, and a combination of the blue and gold drapery fabric for the larger rectangle pillow, along with two different fringes. I'm just wishing I could have stood far enough away to get a full view of the room in one photo.
