Draperies!

And some of the finishing touches are coming in!

Living room drapes

These draperies were custom made by Best Fabric Store, a fantastic operation out of Alabama. We have been using them as a fabric source for a few years now. They also do custom sewing, and with splitting the time between the two houses, working, and commuting, this potential DIY project was contracted out.

We also selected blackout fabric as the lining. The sun can beat through the southern windows and to reduce solar gain (in the summer) and insulate against the chilly night air (winter) a heavier blackout fabric was selected.

A huge thanks to the Best Fabric Store team. We are thrilled with the quality of the workmanship. And a pat on our own backs for our hidden interior design skills (fabric and living room wall color play off of each other very well).

Fabric: Rockin’ Robin with blackout fabric

Color: Driftwood (Coral selected for master bedroom and not shown)

Size: 2 panels providing 1.85X coverage of an opening ~81 inches wide. Each panel was ~83 inches long
