Delightful Dining Room Drapery Details
The corner of this dining room is just a microcosm of the whole room. The crown molding is painted and glazed, the walls were upholstered in a coral cotton damask trimmed with scalloped braid, the painted ceiling is stenciled in a custom designed pattern. And, then there is the drapery. This valance heading has trumpets and subtle swags trimmed with a small scalloped braid and finished with my favorite maltese bows. The sides of the bows are banded in the pale blue, while the opposite side is in the charteuse. The drapery panels are two different fabrics, sewn together to create the stripes in the colors I sought. Details like these continually give the eye new delights to find, something new to see.
