Showhouse Opens!

At last, the Designer Showhouse of Westchester opened to a gala preview last night!  A guest bedroom by Susan Marocco Interiors was a favorite, exuding her trademark "Approachable Elegance."

A steady stream of visitors sighing with delight rewarded all the hard work that went into creating the room.  The three-layer trim on the draperies and the curved mounting board were a great success.
It was too chaotic to concentrate on taking a good full-room photo!  These will have to do, for now.

The Euro shams are flanged with the silk pleated ribbon that provided the base for the drapery trim treatment; for the pillows, it is folded in half and sewn in.

Fragments from earlier projects provided a hint of contrast to the mostly monochromatic palette, the front pillow also showing off the drapery's three-layer trim treatment. 

The horizontal striped bedskirt peeks out from under the quilted silk coverlet; the asymmetrical stripe is repeated in two pillows, not in place for this photo, but you can see them in one of the above photos.
