Desserts & Draperies

Draperies are to a room are like a fancy desert to a meal. It was big news, even in USA Today, when Carnival Cruise Line revived the tradition of uniformed servers parading the flaming Baked Alaska dessert through the dining room. Who doesn’t love to Ooo and Ahhhh over a scrumptious looking sweet dish to top off a meal experience?

Draperies can have the same delicious effect on a room.

Icing on the cake? This is obviously well designed room. But, what most draws your eye? Isn’t it the three-piece window treatment with the roller shades, cornices and side panels? The contrasting band on the cornice is lined with nail heads and creates a beautiful detail to these over the top cornices. The inside cascades create an architectural element to the windows. Lastly the mirror image treatments create a symmetry, balance and calm. Yummmm. Scrumptious.

Often, adding a top treatment can be the topping on this coconut cream tart with peaches and blueberries. The cornice topping off the window has a beautiful fabric that has a traditional flair and is also geometric. The roman shades stack up perfectly under the cornices. You’ll notice the custom cornice is one solid piece, which adds to its appeal.

Any chance this window treatment was inspired by a Zebra cake? It might have been enough to address only the lower window. Why not add some drama with medallions that allow the draperies to follow the angle of the ceiling. See how all 4 windows now look like one giant window. Tasty!

If you would like to organize a few friends, each in their own home, for a fun Zoom presentation on more scrumptious draperies, I would be happy to help you organize and present some before and after pictures showing more about how draperies are like dessert for a room.  Just give me a call or send me an email.  814-336-3000  or
