do your drapes match the carpet?

a room without window treatment, is like a face without eyebrows.
it not only frames the 'eyes' of the room, it also finishes and brings continuity to the entire look.
but it rarely comes cheap. i love it when a great textile design line, like 'dwellstudio' teams up with a ready made service like the shade store. check it: i swear, this should be target's next project~ bringing designer fabrics to the masses in a few, basic choices. can you imagine, scalamandre for target?

Scalamandre for Target. Wouldn't that be too good to be true? Heaven for sure! And...longer lengths. Why don't they get it? Draperies,ready-made like custom, need to be longer than 84 inches. Is there someone you can tell? Do you have contacts?

Are you going to think less of me when I confess:

I hate curtains.

Nice analogy about windows and faces.

Ahh ... window treatments ...one of my guilty pleasures. Loved spending on them. And yes they are quite expensive.

Love curtains, hate carpets but what can you do? Not sure what Target is either- sorry England can be very far away sometimes from er... blogland?

that would be any designer's nightmare. designer fabric available to the public?!

dumbed down 'designer fabrics'. the interior design version of what they've been doing with fashions.

target, IKEA, bed, bath & beyond, pier one all have a pretty good variety of drapery panels... granted they are not Scalamandre.

I used to dislike drapery... until I started working with a fabulous drapery maker for my clients... I became a fan!

it's all about me, really.
