Choose the Right Lining for Silk Drapery Panels

We used a simple lining and inter-lining to allow these silk panels to stack-back tightly when opened


but we had a different objective for the panel below.  
 Here we wanted to create soft, uniform pleating.

The secret to getting softly rounded folds is choosing the right lining.  You won't have the same results by using the typical lining and inter-lining commonly used with soft silks.

A 2-Story Master

 Our lead installer is a master at 2 story installs.  


Often the rods need to be cut to size before the climbing begins.

 Notice how the ceiling in this master bedroom has varying heights?

We mounted the drapery so that the rods appear at the same height when looking up from the floor.
Let's remove the ladder and...
  Finally the job is completed!  
I love the way the linen pleats cascade softly from the rod to the floor.
This room's 16 ft walls would have been cold and harsh without the talent of 
Interiors by Meryem and the seamstress' and install team from The Drapery Shop.
Thank you for taking a moment to view our blog. 
 Hope to hear from you soon.

The Perfect Pleat

I love the way we are able to bend the rules a bit and bring new life to old design concepts.

Here we've created the Perfect Pleat on dark Wood Zip rods.   The drapes are able to move along the bottom of the rod without the use of rings.

Great Reviews

After creating these color blocked drapery for a client in Fairfax, VA she emailed, “Thanks again for the wonderful job on the drapes!  I absolutely love them.  Now the room is complete.  On a scale of 1 - 10 as to how happy I am with the drapes I’m at  15.

Here We Go Again... Higher and Higher

Sometimes I can't believe the places I end Up.
Psalm Francisco Interior Designs hired us to construct the grommet drapery for this project.
Look, somebody's got to do it and somebody's got to watch...  LoL
