Just what the client ordered to compliment her antiques .The style takes me back many years, when I redecorated guest room at the Historic Deerfield Inn, Old Deerfield, Massachusetts. The fabric is "Birds of Paradise" from Schumacher.
I created the lemon yellow sectional slipcover a few months ago , now was the time to create the window valance. Four throw pillows made from the same fabric combo to complete the room décor.
Janes new bedroom: Reversable bedskirt, Pleated Valances, Assorted Pillows.and a Bedscarf
Roman shades with top valance, pleat in center
Slipcover for the kingsize headboard, Euro shams, envelope pillow shams, neckrolls and drapes adorn this bedroom.
Ruffled bed skirt (not shown) and matching throw pillows completed this bedroom.
Upholstered headboard and bedskirt are the same fabric. Shams have a 3 inch flat flange and the duvet cover is backed with a solid sheet.
The antique iron bed valance is made from two antique bureau scarves sewn together, gathered to fit and stitched on to Velcro. Standard shams were transformed into Euro shams by adding bands of fabric on all four sides, cording and ruffle.
Pleats are evenly spaced , one pleat in the center of each section of glass, a pleats where each of the slider frames overlap, when slider is closed, and longer pleats on either end.
My customer requested 4 crewel pieces, about 50 years old and handed down from her Aunt, be made into pillows. She choose velvet for the back and a twisted rope to trim the front outter edge.
The fabric pattern dictated the valance shape.
At the customers request I created a Roman shade, swag and a twin bedspread (not shown) from an old pair of drapes . The rosette swag holders are mounted on plywood circles, attached to wooden dowels, and mounted to wall with metal L brackets. The rosette fabric is the same as the long single curtians that hang over the Roman shade.
Custom Shower Curtian: Made from table cloths, trimmed with lime cording and 1" pleats.
