Here is a lovely recent installation that I wanted to share. This apartment is in an early historic building in downtown SF made of concrete and converted to condos. The fabric is a wide sheer from Rodolph. Since privacy was not an issue we could keep it unlined for soft light to come through. Since the client wanted a contemporary look, and a grommet heading, we needed extra strength at the heading for this thin sheer fabric. We covered the mesh buckram stiffener with a black lining fabric to add contrast, strength and to hide the inner workings. The result is just what the client wanted, framing the windows, but not overpowering the room.

I have a new favorite hardware look. This is great for close spaces or when a curtain/window is very close to the corner wall. Because the projection is now bent onto the rod, we can use that 3-4" as stack space to help the curtains stack off the window. Presto, this will allow more light and view into the room. It is a clean and modern look.

A client sent a photo of a smocked pillow that I had never seen before.

After a bit of research and practice, we solved the problem. It is called

Lattice smocking, and has a great look. Not the fastest design we ever

made, but I dare say very beautiful and interesting. It could be used on

a curtain heading, the hem of a table cover, or one entire side of a pillow.

It was a fun problem to solve and keeps us growing and learning.

I hope you enjoy it!
