MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR MEDIA ROOM WITH AUTOMATED CUSTOM DRAPERIES - PART 1 OF 4

Long associated with traditional décor, custom draperies are an essential component in designing rooms around modern technology.  Choose your custom window treatments with the same care as you selected your audio/video equipment and lighting controls.  Draperies add several essential elements to a modern media room:

ALWAYS IN STYLE: CUSTOM SHUTTERS

“Shutters are always a classic choice for your windows,” advises Marcia Pederson, an interior designer out of Drapery Connection’s Hinsdale, IL location.  Shutters are the “little black dress” of window treatments.  Marcia went on to share that “The current trend is 3 ½” louvers with a hidden tilt bar [Illustrated by the above photo].”

Fabric Friday: Embroidery Inspiration

Grab inspiration for your next decorating project from the pages of a fabric book.  A beautiful and intricately embroidered linen inspires draperies and bedding and pairs well with assorted textured solids for an upholstered headboard.   Finish with rich details such as a tassel or onion trim in softly coordinating colors.
