Delectable draperies are not for everyone, but more and more people are loving them. Some thought draperies would block their view or be too heavy! The truth is…draperies done in the right way won’t block a view they will only compliment it, and if heavy is not the look you want there are thousands of fabrics that are very light and sexy! Draperies are IN! Think of your window like a beautiful piece of art or picture. Usually that picture as a frame that compliments the picture and draws your eye to the artwork or painting. Draperies do the same for a window with a view! Simple decorative panels can add a soft frame to a window that has a beautiful view of sky-scraping mountains or a never-ending ocean of blue! This fabric will bring your eye to the window! If you choose a fabric with the colors of nature it will definitely bring the outside in! I could go on and on with how fabulous custom draperies are….and though its rather enticing, I will conclude with this…You never know what your window may be missing until you’ve stepped into the world of draperies and the many possibilities it can bring!

My Client wanted to create a bedroom escape for relaxing and a sense of being in a soothing get-a-way cove! We stared our project with fresh “Mist” honeycomb shades for light-control and energy effiency! We then moved the the bedding for cool comfort. With a silky paisley print fabric, including light blues, greens, and taupes, we designed a custom bedspread and matching pillow shams. With fabric in-hand we chose a palette of blues to cover the walls and create the tranquil, serene, bedroom that we hoped for. In the end it took my clients breathe away.

One very popular type of valance in Anchorage is a Rhythmic valance. This type of valance has several elements that are used repeatedly to create rhythm in the design of the topper! Some of these elements include pleats, jabots, tails, cascades, scallops, points, arches, and pelmets. These types of desins in custom made top treatment are a sassy way to show coordinating fabrics with different patters and designs! It is also a great way to hightlight a bold pattern and keep all the details very simple and consistent! Either way rhymthmic valances are one of the latest in window fashion accessories for your window! At Exciting Windows by Morgan we can help make your home more beautiful with simple or extravagant toppers!

Drapery pleats are the small section at the top of a drapery. A section of the fabric has been folded and sewn into place to create a certain look and add fullness. Pleats create a uniform proportion and spacing along the heading. They allow for smooth operation and for some, a cleaner stacking postion. There are several different types of pleats ranging from traditional to modern. With the help of of a professional window coverings expert, we can help find the perfect pleat for you!
