"Balloon Shades, What Fun!"

I love using Balloon Shades to bring attention to small spaces and Nooks.

 Balloon Shades can sometimes be very intrusive, So be sure your window or room is accomidating.

This is a London Shade on a kitchen door.
A London Shade can sometimes be discribed as a cross between an operable shade and a swag treatment.

A Taylored or Boxed Pleated Balloon Shade is a great way to show off a Floral

Can you see how the pattern repeats?

I Blog and Post Pictures and Images of My Own Work

All of the drapes pictured on this blog are window treatments fabricated at The Drapery Shop.   

The one exception are these drapery panels hanging on the Modern Flat Rod.

Some of my favorite pics and images that we have created are those of  Shaped Cornices and Roman Shades.   
Here is a window that features both.
 I always try to convince my clients to follow the shape of the arched windows. 
Or in some instances, to create arches.

I also love the images on toiles.

  It creates visual interest when using a toile in a Boxed pleated valance

Using toile for Roman Shades is always Challenging.
I don't want to be responsible for cutting anyones head off!
