|The new treatments|
These photos show two of the four areas we treated. It took some mathematical gymnastics to decide on a common denominator so the sections could be approximately the same size.
The cool, airy treatments, designed by Kim Freeman of Freeman Design Group, were made from curtains from the client's country home that we made in 2008.

Why did I forget to take a close-up!? Well, I've got a close-up of the mock-up, below. The 4"
one-way pleats, all rippling in the same direction throughout all the areas, create a sort of wave illusion which is modern and restful.
For this fabric, a slubby linen blend sheer, we chose a plain-weave lightweight white cotton lining which gives shape to the undulating pleats. While the unlined mock-up was floppy and uncontrolled, the finished product has a serene orderliness.
Our installation team was a model of efficiency and proficiency. They made it look effortless.
On the way out of town I stopped at the Museum of Natural History to catch the Silk Road exhibit before it closes on Sunday. I also finally got to see the Golden Orb Spider Silk Tapestry- awesome!- there's a picture of it in the top right corner of this page. That gold is the color of the silk- it's not dyed!
