    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.

All dressed up

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.

Fun in the sun room

drapery panels


A couple of stationary drapery panels in the corners of this sun room help soften the room and bring your eye up to the high ceilings and the arched window without taking away from the backyard views.  The drapery panels were banded with a generous chocolate brown band on both outside edges leading up to the  three inch header.  They were shirred on a decorative wooden spiral rod with acorn finials and cinched at the waist for maximum outside views.
