    Welcome to my showcase of design ideas and inspiration for custom home décor, flattering window treatments and other soft furnishings. I have been blessed by being invited into many beautiful homes and meeting the nicest people. I am among the fortunate few who truly enjoy a fulfilling and rewarding profession. Thank you for looking at my work.

swag with rosettes


A grand staircase needs some dressing. Here we framed the arched window with a scarf swag tied in three places, center and corners with rosettes. This style is one continuous piece of fabric while the knots, or rosettes, allow the fabric to be swaged by pulling out fabric from the knots where needed and cinching the fabric tighter along the top edge.  The sides, or tails are cut on an angle to add a little softness to the window.

pleated valance


This striped pleated valance unifies the bay window and doors with pleats strategically placed. The length of the jabots as well as the arch of the treatment add visual interest to the room. Modern shutters add privacy, furnishings and interest to the room. Honeycomb shades are hidden under the valance for privacy when needed.
