Littleton Colorado Custom Window Treatments

Our client had original wood shutters on all of her guest bedroom windows from when the home was built. Although they were a nice quality, they didn’t provide the softness desired or complimented the furnishings and window trim detail. She wanted to bring another decorative element to the room and still provide shade and privacy.

The first guest bedroom has 2 beautiful antique Twin beds with wood inlay and intricate carving. The bedding is in antique style quilts with a soft blue/green paisley pattern. We wanted to compliment the bedding by using a similar motif but scaling down the size of the pattern.

The custom romans were designed to bring a more traditional, historic style to the windows to compliment the antique furnishings. The style of these romans is called Stagecoach Soft Roman – appropriate for the period of the beds.

Because the beds in this room are both Twins, taking its guests in mind, we wanted to bring a playful element to the window treatments but keep a refined detail using Ribbon bows with a metallic thread stitching.

The second guest bedroom has a more masculine feel to the furnishings but we wanted to still bring a softness and interest to the windows. Because the placement of the windows was set in the corner of the room, creating custom inset romans was a better solution to drapery panels with an angled drapery rod.

The bedding in this room is more simple in nature, so we chose to bring movement and interest through pattern to the windows. To maintain a more masculine feel, we chose a flat style roman to with simple valance. This style lets the pattern be the prominent feature of the custom window treatment.

The bedding also has a subtle grey/blue bordered pattern to the duvet. We incorporated a border detail to the custom romans by adding a contrasting fabric to the edges of the roman and the valance.  This detail tied all of the soft furnishings in the room beautifully.
