~~ Powder Room



This small powder room needed an elegant treatment for the window. Let me say that I really dislike bathrooms without windows, just doesn't seem right.

Anyway... the window was fairly large for the room and faced the driveway. We put up a grasscloth weave woven shade in a black/dark cocoa color. The trim is stained a reddish color and is the same throughout the home. We mounted two tab brackets for the swag to rest on. The fabric is a shimmery gold with a slight small pattern noticeable in the weave.

We lined the gold fabric with a black knowing that the back would show some. Having an expert installer guarantees beautiful results. It takes time to position the fabric and create the swag effect.

And having an expert workroom is just as important for I often 'overthink' and she brings me back to earth!
