Dreamy Drapery: Before and After

I recently designed a stunning window treatment that combined both style and function for my absolutely wonderful clients. My inspiration for the fabric choices came from the lovely wallpaper installed behind their bed. During the initial consultation, they told me that they wanted as close to complete black out as possible. My treatment combined a padded cornice to minimize light and fully functioning black out drapery panels. I added a contrasting band to the inside of the panels so they could easily find the openings for the bay window panels.

As you can see from the following before picture, they were ready for something new!

50s Kitchen, revamped: Before and After

I had the pleasure of helping my Mom and Stepdad with a complete renovation of the main floor of their 50s home. My grandfather built it in 1956. He was a master carpenter and took great pride in designing and building a beautiful and functional home for his family. My Mom moved back into her family home 6 years ago, and while the home functioned wonderfully, it was certainly in need of some updating. We wanted to create an open space for them to entertain family and grandkids with ease, and use a classic palette to breathe some life into the space. Following are some pretty stunning before and after pics!

I will concentrate on the kitchen in this post and I will share their main bathroom transformation in the coming weeks.
