Theatrical Drama in Living

In this formal living space we needed something on the windows to add warmth and drama but we didn’t want to cover the view. This treatment does exactly that. I used a heavy weight fabric to match the height and weight of the room and draped it over two wooden drapery rods. The wooden beams and posts in the walls gave the room a very nice dimension but also had to be considered when positioning the rods. Since this is the first view as you walk through the front door I wanted it be very dramatic. It is stunning!

It is impossible to put a cost on a custom window treatment until you have a design for the window and the fabric selected that you are going to use. Custom window treatments are more expensive than ready mades but as you can see, the visual and emotional impact that a custom treatment provides for a room is well worth the money and sometimes the only way to get that “WOW” factor you are after. It’s money well spent.
