Remember the two drapery ideas for the red dining room a few weeks ago? We now have the real thing to show off.
The client chose this cotton print from RM CoCo. The fabric with the dark background really looked the best on the red wall, and this particular fabric had enough bright colors throughout that it really gave a cheerful look to the room. The additional colors leave a lot of opportunity to add accents in almost any color. But a word of warning if you are about to fall in love with this fabric too: you might not be able to find it. It has ended up on the discontinued list and is no longer being manufactured. Boo Hoo!
Here's the closeup showing the europleated panels and the beautiful finials from Helser Brothers. This was the first time we were able to use this particular finial and it really complimented the design in the fabric.
Here's the way the panels will look most of the time. We did also install lucite batons behind the second pleat on each panel so the drapes can be closed during family dinners. The napped sateen lining added enough body to the panels to keep the pleats looking full and provide privacy and will filter the sunlight.
