Drapery Side Panels are Sometimes All We Need
This was a very expensive fabric, so the decision was made to just make it into drapery side panels rather than full operating draperies. Once again, it’s hung from custom iron hardware with beautiful finials, brackets and rings.
Drapery side panels can reduce glare, dress a window, and enhance a home’s interior design without the heaviness of full operating draperies. We believe they should always have at least 1 1/2 widths of fabric on each side of a window, especially in a room this tall, but the look is exquisite.
These drapery side panels are pleated with a two-finger top tack instead of the more traditional pinch-pleat. This client started out with them on only the water side windows of this room, but they were so beautiful, they couldn’t justify duplicating them on the other side of the room. We carefully made sure the pattern was exactly the same from one side of the room to the other so it looked cohesive and like they were all done at one time.
As Kitty would say, “Yum!”
