Curtain design in Brentwood Today here we are at the Karysefin’s househere in Brentwood.
We’re going to go upstairs.
What we are doing is an opening for a masterbedroom.
We are also trying to dress up their bed by doing some swags and cascades.
So letme take you upstairs and show you what’s going on.
OK, so this morning our plan is to go ahead and to dress up this window here behind me.
This is a very beautiful bedroom, there’s a lot of work that’s gone into it, a lotof details it’s very ornate.
We are planning to use our dazzling collection.
Our plan is to use our goal is to use our scrolls, our hold backs and our crowns combined.
The picture we are trying to achieve is similar to this.
We are also going to be using swags for the bed.
And one of the things with the swagsis that we are going to use Velcro to avoid having to staple onto the bed.
These are the cascades that we are going to be using on the corner of the bed.
The scrollsare right here.
These are the crystal holdbacks.
And these are the textures we are planningon using for this particular room.
We’ve combined two fabrics in this house and thisis what our plan is.
We just have to make sure that these drapesare handled properly and that they are stored properly so that the client can reuse themat a later date.
It’s really crucial to make sure that thedrapes are handled properly and that they are folded correctly so they can be used again.
We are going to seam fold them which is simply having every on folded where the seams are.
By doing this you don’t have to try and rewrap them while you are on the ladder itwill allow you to hang them up straight in the air.
And you can do this with one personrather than having two people seam folding.
This particular design that we are doing iscalled scarfing.
And with the scarfing because we are using the scrolls, we always recommendthat you cut one of the sides at an angle versus the other side which will be a straightcut.
The reason for this is that we are using the scrolls.
The scrolls are tilting at anangle and we have a right angle and a left angle and this is really important when weare using the scrolls.
Now we are going to slip the pocket into thescroll to see what it looks like.
This part of the job is probably the easiest and mostcrucial parts of the job.
It’s all about how you go about swaging this fabric across.
All you have to do is simply by keeping it flat, and working from the edge of the fabricworking in at an angle, it will give you a very nice deep swag.
As you can observe.
This room since this is an opening between the two we chose to go ahead and use bothsides of the fabric.
And by using both sides of the fabric we are going to have one coloron one side and the second color on the other side.
What I chose to do on this one is adda valance on the drapes so that we could have an attached valance when they gather up.
We simply organize the fabric all evenly.
This is all we need to do to avoid havingto see the bracket and this will get mounted into the ceiling.
What I’m going to do nowis to organize the fabric all evenly across the rod so that when we come to pleating it,it’s all ready to go.
Now I’m going to slip the bracket onto therod.
And snap it on.
OK we’re ready to put it up, lets see what it looks like.
So, what I’m doing now is since we put up all of the swags, I’m going to make surethey stay in place.
I’m going to do this by putting a zip on this and simply pullingthe zip.
The zips will keep the drapes and the scarf from moving anywhere else.
We are getting toward the end of the job now.
I’m starting to dress the drapes.
They lookreally nice.
We put the pleats in and we are making sure they are all dressed up nicely.
While I’m doing this Martin in the meantime is working on the swags.
Yes, Martin is startingto dress up the bed.
See, this will cover the column on the insidebut I think if we go on the inside it should be ok.
We found out that the jabots we were using were a little bit small for this bed.
Andbecause of the complexity we decided to make some samples to make sure that they fit thebed.
We found that the way that we made them there were some corrections to be done sothat was really a smart move in doing that.
Sometimes it’s good to make the mistakesahead of time rather than coming back and doing all over it again.
And we’ve learnedthat from years of experience.
By doing this it allows you to go ahead and make two tripsbut your client will be much happier in the end.
The job went much smoother than I had anticipated.
Although we did have some issues with thejabots on the bed, we made that mistake now rather than later so we will not have to remakethe entire draperies.
The client seems to be happy with the work.
This turned out reallybeautiful.
The colors seem to have really accommodated what we were trying to do.
Our clients have also requested for us to go ahead and do some more flags behind thebed and we are going to come back and complete that.
Overall on this job I think I would give it a 9+ I really like to dramatic look of itand by us adding the extra swags to it and taking it from one look to another look thatreally worked out well.
