Party people! It's week five of the One Room Challenge!
I'm part super relaxed about this whole "let's design, finish a room, and have it photographed in six weeks" and part freaking out on the inside. I'm going to keep it short and sweet today. Let's jump right into the good stuff: WINDOWS!
Isn't Instagram wild? Instagram has helped me connect with so with talented business women, artists, photographers, and fellow designers. I'm addicted. I've been following @drawncompany for a while now...since before they even had their name! As a fabric junkie, I'm always attracted to beautiful work, especially when it comes to windows. Julie & Jen, of Drawn clearly create beautiful custom window treatments. And I'm thrilled to use their roman shades in my client's master bedroom.
Yes, these are grainy cell phone photos, but that will make the real photos next week just that much better! I promise we will take some gorgeous shots of these shades. Hopefully you can see what a big impact they have on the room. I love the finishing details, like the piping across the top and the lining.
The Real Story
Background on the windows...before we started making changes to the room they had blinds and a pleated valance. I was planning to keep the blinds, remove the valances, and add drapes. Originally the winter crane fabric was going to be the drapes. Then a couple weeks in I realized that the shade on the right didn't work properly. My clients have lived with it broken for so long, that she forgot to tell me. We ALL know how it goes when you get used to something and don't even see it anymore. This wouldn't work, but we're on a deadline.
I contacted Drawn in a panic. HELP PLEASE!
Julie, one of the owners, was a gem to speak with and was able to help us in time for the photo shoot.
I have a long way to go before the room is finished.
*nightstands need to be styled
*bed needs to be dressed
*add piece over the headboard
*install gallery wall and sconces
*style the two dressers and TV table
*finish upholstering the new vintage chairs for the end of the bed
I'll be posting many updates on Instagram, you can be sure.
Until then, let's refill our coffee and check out the other challengers!
