Master Bedroom Velvet & Damask Window Treatments

Brown Velvet Panels with Loose Roman Shades

If you’ve read this blog for a while you probably realize I love to use velvet. Especially silk or silk-like velvet.

Most often I use it as an accent. Velvet make a gorgeous ruffle. If you’ve visited The Gallery you may have noticed velvet ruffles on numerous pillows, table runners and window treatments. This little cafe curtain is one of my all-time favorites.

For Tara’s master bedroom we chose to use this luxurious fabric for our floor length window treatment panels.

Brown, Gold & Cream Master Bedroom

Traditionally, velvet is made from silk but can be terribly expensive. It can also be made from cotton but tends to have a less luxurious feel. At approximately $30/yd this velvet is most likely made from a synthetic fiber such as polyester, nylon or acetate but made to give it a silk-like look and feel.

Loose Roman Shade with Ruffle and Tassel Trim

For privacy and light control we made three matching loose roman shades from gold damask with a shimmery ruffle out of a taupe crinkle fabric and topped with a beaded tassel trim.

The pleated, velvet panels are dead panels (non functioning), 2 widths wide (approx. 100″) mounted on a custom iron rod with metal rings.

Ruffle & Tassels

For the back door we made a flat fold roman shade but with a decorative topper that mimics the detail on the window shades.

I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing the difference window treatments make in a room. Whether custom made or a simple, inexpensive ready made curtains they really cozy up a space.

    Those are absolutely exquisite. The treatments are well done and add so much to the room. I LOVE velvet…always have. I love the feel of it and the way it adds such a feel of richness to an area. I even like cotton velveteen although it doesn’t have the same hand. Gorgeous work! xo Diana

    I had no idea that velvet was made of silk. I must be a fabric geek because I was totally fascinated by your info about the different silks. Love these window coverings, the trim on top of the ruffle is beautiful.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous- if only I had a tiny bit of your talent (and patience) for doing such amazing window treatments.
