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!
