Best Coral Smile!

I call this Valance  "Best Coral Smile" We made the valance  to mimic a relaxed Roman shade for a little girls room.  The drop in the center seems to just smile at you.  It's such a Happy  window covering.  
The relaxed Roman valance requires very little fabric.  You can actually get by with 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 yards.  Give us a call 703-551-2929 to take a look at our remnants and bring a smile to your room.

The Drapery Shop with Stanley Martin Homes

The Drapery Shop had the pleaser of partnering with Stanley Martin Homes.  We created all of the lovely window coverings in their Lindsey single family home model, Bradlee Square, Manassas VA.
In the morning room we used a navy, aqua and white paisley from Premier Prints.
I just love the perfect pleating!

The study pictured below is calming and comfy with mint and white fabric and paint.

The family room drapery are ivory with cobalt bandings

A Master at Drapery Installs

Our master installer is also our master drapery maker

Here Chris is adding extra support to ripple fold ceiling tracks.
Quite often Chris will run through and hang the rods and I'll be on an additional ladder hanging the drapery as he moves on to the next window.


 We install 90% of the window coverings we make.

Belgium Linen Drapery Panels

I love the way this rod travels around the room seamlessly but the less than perfect finish on the imported linen troubled me a bit.

Belgium linen has to be handled very carefully.  It seems as though it will wrinkle out of spite just because you LOOK at it.  Ugh!  
I've since learned that clients expect the imperfect finish and they like a little wrinkling.
