still gasping for air- holiday rush- aaarrrggghhh- help!-
But I'm going to take a moment to show off one recently installed really beautiful drapery job.
Kim Freeman's client had a gorgeous, impeccably fabricated, heavy, interlined top treatment and draperies out of a classic Clarence House fabric, trimmed in burgundy velvet, but wanted to lighten and update her dining room.
The Before treatment

We removed the top treatment, and took the velvet banding off of the draperies.  The panels now needed lengthening, so Kim spent weeks searching for the exact perfect coordinating fabric for a wide bottom band.
The After treatment
The spotted fabric is sophisticated, pairing perfectly with the classic print, and adding just a hint of whimsy.
A skinny burgundy lip cord between the fabrics defines the line, repeated at the top of the heading. 
The new curtains are pleated into a 2.5" long 2-finger pleat to complete the more modern look.
