Drapery interlining question - I'm having a Roman shade made with lining and interlining and drapery panels like this beautiful arrangement. Should I get English bump interlining? Would a standard flannel be enough? I'm in the Northeast, but I'm wondering if the more heavily interlined drapes will overpower the window area. Thanks.

I would definitely line the drapery with the bump. It will give you the weight and depth of texture without using as much drapery fabric to achieve the fullness.
Good luck

The headboard was from Woodland Industries out of Idaho. It was upholstered in a custom fabric from Robert Allen/Beacon Hill.

It is a stunning bedroom, perfect-love how the skirt of the bed matches the curtains-everything blends well. Brilliant work.

Thank You...the wife wanted a very feminine, romantic bedroom. The husband said 'I will not sleep in a girly room' so I think a nice balance was struck. The bedskirt was made super/extra long so we could give that giant cloud like look to the bed. The walls were done in Venetian Plaster. The dark 'spots' that you see are actually Copper Leaf that was applied between layers of the Venetian Plaster so that it gave a true old world look to the room. It took my faux finishers over 2 weeks to complete the walls. There was a team of 3 working 10-12 hours a day to complete the amazing look.
Thank You for the accolades.

Thank you so much for the inquiry. These drapery were custom made for this client. It is a pale bronze silk that is double lined. There is a cotton lining with a heavy european 'bump' inerlining as well to give the fullness.
Again thank you for the inquiry.

Any drapery workroom would have access to custom rods. Even try JC Penney or a large retailer that has a drapery department.

Actually thus drapery was custom. The fabric was from Beacon Hill Fabrics. But this was a few years ago, do I don't know if the fabric is still available since so many mills have shut down worldwide due to the economy. Good luck!!!
Thank you!!!

Thank You for your question. It was custom made for this room. We had it made by Eastern Accents in Chicago, IL. The fabric is a knobby chenille in an ivory and celery green.

This headboard is available at Nebraska Furniture Mart, in Kansas City. The name is Vineyard by Pinewood International. Can't find it anywhere else around, but they will ship it anywhere. Just ordered it a few weeks ago.

This is a custom headboard that I had made from the Woodland Furniture Company in Idaho. It is approximately 7' tall and 6' wide. the wood is Alder with a dark walnut stain. The fabric is from Robert Allen/Beacon Hill designs. We mounted it to the wall because of it's size and weight, then the bed frame is a traditional "hollywood" frame (the metal ones) that we then screwed to the headboard so it doesn't move.
If you have any additional questions please shoot me an email.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to 5 Ingredients to a Romantic Bedroom
Layer your windows with hard treatments like blinds or shades, along with drapes that have black out lining. This combination will shut the world out so you can concentrate on your romance. Silk or velvet drapes are soft looking.
It's the same idea as before, but this time with thicker fabric shades and scrumptious deep-gold drapes.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 22 Divine Draperies That Indulge and Delight
This is another great example of metallic fabric for drapes. The volume and length combine to give this bedroom a soft, romantic feel.
Light pollution in your bedroom can rob you of much-needed rest and impede your body’s ability to regulate its sleep cycle. Artificial lighting interrupts natural rhythms, confusing our bodies into thinking that they should be awake long after the sun has gone down. This can lead to sleep deprivation, depression, weight gain and increased risk of diabetes and heart disease. Sleeping in a room polluted with artificial light causes fragmented sleep and interferes with your body’s natural production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep cycles and sexual development and may even help prevent cancer. A few things to consider about lighting:The darker the room, the better you sleep. You should not be able to see your hand after you turn off the lights.Be aware of light pollution sources, including streetlights, nightlights, hall lights, clocks, phone dials, baby monitors and electric blanket controls. Move or cover sources within the bedroom and install blackout drapes to block outside sources.Turn off the television and computer at least an hour before bed. These light sources can reset your biological clock and make falling asleep difficult. If possible, keep computers and televisions out of the bedroom altogether.Think of light in terms of layers. Ambient light should provide enough for general tasks; task lighting can reside on the bedside table, a desk or near a reading chair; and accent lighting can highlight artwork, furniture or an accent wall.
