Fall Fun, Fall Colors and the Market Blues

We are keeping busy with our clients and enjoying the beautiful weather that has finally arrived!

We installed beautiful window treatments for a client in Friendswood. The existing draperies were heavy and dated in appearance.  The client wanted an update but did not want to change her furniture or bedding. We selected a fresh paint color to update the walls. The draperies needed to be functional to achieve complete darkness for sleeping. We decided to do a cornice board treatment with functioning panels. We selected a neutral linen and used it for the panels and cornice boards. Decorative detail was added on the cornices with an embroidered trim. Alexandra’s Custom Draperies did a wonderful job constructing our window treatments. They turned out beautifully and the client was very happy! Please see project photos below.  We included a swatch of the fabric, the before photo…and the after!

We also installed some beautiful chairs for a gentleman client in Spring. He wanted comfortable chairs to view the lovely new landscaping in his backyard, so we visited one of our trusted showrooms, James Craig Furnishings, and selected a style that could be made into a swivel. We also recovered his dining chairs and are working on recovering his barstools.  Now he wants a new sofa. We love when that happens and clients are so comfortable in their new seating.

I am just getting home from High Point Market, one of my favorite trips of the year! I can’t wait to share some of the design trends I saw. For now, suffice it to say, it was a blue, blue, market but in such a happy way. Blue was everywhere, especially in upholstery. Often paired classically with white or boldly with gold, it looked so pretty.

Our Sugar Land clients joined me at the beginning of the week for some serious shopping. There are endless options at market and we are excited to be helping them with their new home.

Making clients comfortable, fall market and the blues always inspire me. Until next time, find your inspiration or call us and we’ll help you discover it.
