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 fall with such sharp and distinct detail from the rod to the floor.
This room's 16 ft walls would have been cold and restless 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

Zip Rods

Zip Rods allow you to have fully functioning panels on decorative  drapery rods without the busyness and clutter of rings.

Notice the difference?
The picture below shows the drapery on a wood pole with rings.
  Really it's a matter of personal preference.  Both rod styles function well and with both styles there are limitless wood and metal finishes.

Custom Slumber

We had an upholster build and cover this pretty headboard.  
 The Flanged shams are one of our designer favorites.
  It seems to be difficult for clients to find bedding they really like,
so we get many request for custom bedding.

 I love the Custom Shams and Bedspreads we make.

Our workroom and install team are the "Best"

We used a 24 foot extension ladder to install these panels in this marvelous McLean VA home.  The ladder in the photo was used by one of our team members to hold the heavy panels while the guy 20 feet up secured them at the ceiling.

This home is very impressive. The wing back chairs are 6 feet tall.
Interior designer Ginger Rodriguez,  owner of WestBay Interiors   hired us to make and install the super long drapery panels.

Here's the view from the upper level of the home.

 Our design team also serves as consultants for interior designers.  We help work through the details and find the best solutions.
