Where are you located? If in the northern-NJ area, I can help you. If not, find an interior designer or drapery/bedding/ensemble shop, such as a Calico Corners, or a local boutique version of same. The basket-weave effect requires some labor, but can certainly be recreated. I work with several amazing workrooms who would produce this product.

Connie Elaine's Draperies

I made this look for a client several years ago. Basically, I did a tab top style, except the 'tabs' were much wider to accept shirring at the top (taking in fullness where they met drapery). Make sure 'tabs' are long enough to accept number of weaves. I created my weaves with lengths of fabric pillow cased, then scrunched and woven alternately through the tabs. Wrap the ends behind panels and tack into place. You could also do large bound buttonholes in the panels then weave through those. Good luck!

What shade did you use? Can you see the room from the outside? And does it protect the furniture from the sun? Also is it a 3 day blinds product?

Fred Albert added this to Room of the Day: Elegant Transitional Style in a Traditional Setting
The aqua fabric was so delectable, Fine didn’t want to distract from it by introducing any other colors. “Using layers of the cream and the blue really worked beautifully and really made the blue stand out,” says the designer, who kept pattern to a minimum so her star wouldn’t be upstaged. Echoes of the aqua speckle the carpet and are repeated in the benches and the throw pillows adorning the sofa, which was covered in a child-resistant indoor-outdoor fabric from Holly Hunt.To brighten the space, Fine placed a creamy oversize ottoman in the center of the room, covered with a faux leather from Robert Allen. The piece doubles for both seating and serving. “It’s really stylish,” Fine says, “but you can wipe it with a sponge.”Sofa: Dakota Jackson; painting: Michael Mazur; ottoman: A. Rudin

Use your style notebook to help keep you on track. When you find yourself waffling about a decorating or design decision, take a moment to flip through your style notebook or Houzz ideabook and use it as a litmus test. Would the item you are thinking of purchasing or the paint color you are thinking of using fit in seamlessly with the images you have selected as being totally and utterly you? If not, consider moving on.How to Create and Use Ideabooks

4. Long, full curtains. Curtains hung high (nearly flush with the ceiling) that are long enough to create a hint of a puddle on the ground can make nearly any room look grand. Also, don’t skimp on the total width of the curtains — using twice as many panels will give them a luxuriously full, custom look.Custom Draperies 101

20. Elegant Transitional Style in a Traditional SettingThe style of this living room ventures away from the traditional brownstone architecture with light, bright and family-friendly furnishings, textiles and colors. Cool feature: 12-foot-high aqua silk draperies that steal the show. See more of this room
Bryan Anthony added this to The Drapery Diary: Tab and Tie Tops
You may have noticed a trend already: that sheer fabrics look especially divine as tie-top draperies. The soft flutter of gauzy textiles complements the natural looseness of the ties, and the ties themselves benefit from not having to pull lot of weight. Choosing a lighter-weight fabric preserves the many seams in the header and ensures that your drapery will stay in tip-top shape for decades.Designer tip: Sheer draperies look their best at “three times fullness.” This means that to cover a 48-inch window, for example, you’d use 144 inches of fabric width. Yes, it costs more to use this much fabric, but if you’re going to the expense of having something custom made, it pays to get exactly what you want the first time. Well-made, properly lined draperies can last for decades.

4. Aqua. A paler blue than turquoise with a slight green undertone, aqua is a tropical pastel that adds a soothing, warm vibe to any space.Here, aqua draperies and textiles give a townhouse living room an elegant, beachy feel. Although a muted blue, these minimal accents still pop against the pale neutral background.
