Silk Dining Room Window Treatments

Silk was my fabric of choice when I first began looking at options for this dining room window treatment. The issue was going to be finding the right icy blue-gray to complement the different shades of both colors found in this room.

Fortunately, I found the perfect fabric. A smooth, icy blue, silk called Patiala that provides just the right balance between blue and gray.

Aqua & Ivory Quatrefoil Window Treatments

Charming Living Room

My of my favorite projects is working with clients building a new house. The decision making process can be overwhelming when you’re choosing colors, finishes and fixtures all within a timeline.

My friend Jan has a large Fall centerpiece that I have admired for several years. This year I went to her home and it was completely different. Gone were the oranges, reds & yellow golds and in their place was this shimmering neutral beauty.

But, I will admit, I’d love to find an old farmhouse to call my own that has just as much charm as this one. Charm and character that says welcome even before you walk in the door.

But Sheri would have to design the landscape and maintain the flower beds because my creativity doesn’t venture much beyond the screen door.  Pun intended. :)
