These curtains are beautiful and long! What's the length of these curtains? My house has an arch like this one that I'd love to put a couple curtains over. There are those times when you need to get some privacy and I can't exactly stick a door there. Thanks for the image. https://www.lushescurtains.com/

Hi Jessie, Thanks for the comment. I believe those are around 9' long. The curtain rod is approx. 10" above the top center of the arch. That is where you would want to place your rod to determine the overall height/length of your curtains.

Hi. Thanks for the question. Those are beautiful draperies. Unfortunately, I don't think I can give you any tips on their construction, other than they are made out of a cushed velvet fabric that lines both sides of the draperies. We just told our drapery people what we wanted and they custom made them (and the hardware) for us. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Maybe someone out there will read this and have more insight for you.

These drapes are very easy to make, they look like there pinched pleated. Which is simple and hemmed. If you don't know how to make them, its hard to type here but, you can use "YouTube" once your on youtube.com make sure you type in the seach engine how to make a pinch pleat drapery panel, they're really easy. I make them all the time. Sound as though Tommy above, says there done in the same fabric on both sides, easy...

Benjamin Moore paints. I believe Entry by staircase was China White and Media room...this side of the curtains was Muskota Trail.

Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to 15 Ways to Make Your Home Speak Spanish
Velvet Curtains (Cortinas de Terciopelo)I always love to see velvet curtains in Spanish interiors; they add to the drama of Spanish architecture. Even more contemporary translations look great on windows and entryways. Additionally, velvet pairs naturally with ironwork.
Christine Ciarmello added this to Quiet, Please! How to Cut Noise Pollution at Home
Draperies. Draperies can be both sound absorbing and sound blocking. For sound absorption, look for heavy materials such as velvets and wools. And if there’s a mass-loaded vinyl layer, even better.
Summer Baltzer added this to 7 Ways to Add Mediterranean Elegance to Your Home
5. Fabrics. Cotton, wool and silk textiles adorned every room of a Mediterranean home. Elegant drapes, pillows and rugs were sometimes made with heavier wovens to mimic the look of tapestry. Get this look: Purchase a few yards of a heavy, printed tapestry-inspired fabric to hang on your wall. This simple project just requires a sewn pocket hem on the top side of the fabric to suspend it from a wrought iron curtain rod.
Judith Taylor Designs added this to How Low Should Your Drapes Go?
For an opulent look, really push the length overboard. This method is most often used to reinforce a sense of history in a traditional or historical home.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to Fabric Focus: Decorating With Touchy-Feely Velvet
Drapery. On the other hand, for drapery, the nap should run from bottom to top. So, if you run your hand along the drapery panel from the bottom toward the top, it should follow the smoother nap direction. The vertical orientation of the drapery panel allows the pile to open up and fall in the other direction a bit, so it interacts more with the light. If the nap is oriented downward, the velvet can appear flat.More: Upholstery That Stands Up to AnythingDecorate With Grain Sacks for Quick Farmhouse Style
Jess McBride added this to The Art of the Window: 10 Ways to Love Draperies
1. To set the scene. Draperies can frame more than just windows. Luscious silk panels flank the archway in this Hollywood Hills, California, home, punctuating the transition from one room to the next and offering a hint of mystery, as the masses of fabric obscure all but a sliver of the picture-worthy vignette that lies ahead. Notice how the rod mimics the color and thickness of the railing. Designer tip: When the curtain rod spans a wide archway or window, a bracket every 4 feet is necessary to hold the weight of all that fabric. Sometimes a bracket in the center is unavoidable.
