Always seeking inspiration and growth in artistic styles and influences, Brown Davis maintains offices in Miami Beach, FL. and Los Angeles, CA.

The saturated hues, tropical landscape and design mecca of Miami have influenced a bold aesthetic that resists conformity. It is instead a uniquely American perspective, fusing the traditional roots of classicism, with exuberant, sensual vitality.

Rob Brown a gifted colorist, creates custom palettes that harmonize and balance transitions among eclectic furnishings. As knowledgeable art connoisseurs Brown and Davis have discovered emerging artists that have now become established.

Todd Davis trains his exacting eye on the technical challenges of architectural integrity; classical restoration and contemporary renovation both re-imagine the structural and esthetic foundation upon which everything rests. Building exteriors and landscape design are thoughtfully considered and equally essential to complete their remarkable residential, hospitality and commercial projects situated in Washington DC, Miami Beach, Palm Beach, New York, Los Angeles, as well as through out the United States and internationally.

Both partners have MBAs contributing to their refined project management and fiscal responsibility. Coupled with design intelligence, Brown Davis has earned their most cherished honor: Trust.

I was a window treatment specialist for almost 40 years. Styles come and go, standard fullness changes and local preferences vary dramatically. When I was a young student doing my OJT in a "drapery workroom", the standard for fullness was only double and hems and headings were turned under 1" and then 4". Far less full than todays standard unless you buy your window treatments at K-Mart. But then all things Country came into popularity in this rural area along with gathered cotton curtains up to 5 times fullness and always tied back. Thankfully that style passed.
There was a time when every middle class home hired someone like me to design their window treatments about every 15 years like clockwork. That has all changed with the younger generations as they do the Pottery Barn thing and send their possessions to a landfill every 5 years or so. Notice I refer to the Middle Class. The only Upper Class people in this area, those who still want the luxury of custom window treatments hire designers from more urban areas.
What I am trying to express is that home-owners have the right to decorate their homes as they wish, styles come and go and as a designer, you can only guide your clients in what is appropriate. If they truly want swags or lace or Austrian shades, so be it. But our job is to design them tastefully. I find it truly arrogant when designers feel they must have a "signature" look and refuse to listen to their clients and their real wants or desires. Even Austrian shades or antique satin swags can be designed tastefully..... It's all a matter of skill.

I only worry about privacy in the front of my house, but I'm not that concerned about looks. The back of my kitchen has no curtains at all, the trees provide the privacy in the summer when most people in the apartments out back might be standing around looking at us. The other reason for curtains in my house is in the bedrooms for light control. Here I have the issues of window air conditioners, and the curtains have to be above them.

I have made most of the curtains in my house, or at least adapted bought curtains. I personally don't care for the "puddling" of drapes, but that's because I have 2 blind roommates and cats who think puddled drapes are good places to sleep (actually attempted to pull down a drape in the living room before I replaced them.) I now have tab top curtains in there with pockets, just because I think they are cute. These are one of two sets I bought and the only one I haven't actually sewed to adapt, instead using cute, cheap, broaches to pin it up over the ac and to keep them closed. I would actually love to make my own out of old jeans and have even smaller pockets but that's a chore for a different time.
