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.

Working With Existing Pieces

Many people are faced with the challenge of how they can update a room using existing furniture and incorporating new.  As designers, we are mindful of the emotional attachments people have with their furnishings and are focused on the seamless integration of “old” and “new” items.  Recently, our client asked us to rejuvenate her master bedroom.  She requested a colorful environment with a soft, feminine flair that would breathe life into the space.

Our first priority for this project was to improve the scale of the furnishings within her bedroom.  One of the solutions was to select appropriate table lamps for the two nightstands and antique occasional table.

 

Below, are the lamp options we presented to our client:

In the end, our client selected the lamp on the left for her two nightstands.  Their appropriate scale, graceful shape and warm metal tones mix beautifully with the accent hardware on her existing case goods.

She selected the tall floral lamp for the antique occasional table.  This fanciful lamp will be a statement piece in the room and provide a delicate feminine touch to the ornate table.

 

Stay tuned for the room’s transformation with the installation of the three new table lamps, the refinished bed and nightstands, new bedding as well as new window treatments…

A Place to Hang Your Hat

The boring old coat hook is a thing of the past. There is wonderful, creative hardware available to spruce up any entry and add a little interest and conversation to the foyer. Unexpected objects and figures add a playful element to the function of ordinary hardware.

This cast bronze horse hook has an understated elegance while maintaining a light hearted presence.  This would fit in nicely into the eclectic display of hooks in the entryway below…

Simple pegs, thoughtfully placed, create an interesting composition when life’s necessities are hung neatly.

Mix it up a little…these metal deer antler coat hooks bring life and adventure to this entryway!

A coat rack allows for easy access to everyday hats and jackets. 

Maximizing space is a challenge many of us face.  These multi-hook fixtures are fabulous for an entryway or a closet!

Integrating a rack for light-weight objects into the trim is an artistic answer for this narrow entryway.

Think outside the box…simple objects from a hardware store can even become an elegant way to welcome your guests with a place to hang their hat.
