This window treatment falls directly below the cove molding, to keep continuity also notice how the fabric is the same color as the walls.

It's Me! - Award winning Contemporary Dining Room

This silk window treatment was inspired by a dress in Threads magazine, entered in a competition on how to use ruching or ruffles. The window treatment goals were to let in maximum light, but preserve privacy, and to be clean and contemporary, but with interesting detail. Nothing about the window treatment should upstage more important works of art. The pleating was deliberately made irregular, and alternated direction for a herringbone pattern, which moves the eye across the cornice. A smokey crystal bead at the hem of the upholstered cornice creates a dance of light at the bottom, softening the straight lines. Tailored folds instead of pleats allow fullness to the side drapery panels without fussiness. Irregular shaped nail head trim at the top of each pleat connects with the finish of an adjacent mirror over the buffet (seen in other photos). The serendipity of this design was that as you move in the room, the areas of light and shadow in the herringbone pattern reverse themselves, so the very simple and quiet window treatment is quietly dynamic and moving when you discover it. A Hunter Douglas Silhouette shading offers daytime privacy with a view, and closes for nighttime privacy.
