A Visit from Candice Olson

Scottsdale, Arizona
Scottsdale, Arizona

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week the DrapeStyle team had the pleasure of meeting acclaimed interior designer Candice Olson, at the Kravet showroom in Scottsdale, Arizona.

 

 

On a beautiful afternoon, during the design center’s “Desert Design Days”, Candice spoke to the group of designers and business owners for about an hour. She spoke about her education and how it led to her early days as a design apprentice working on commercial projects and then eventually starting her own business. After doing appearances on a local design show, she transition into the HGTV show Divine Design, we all loved.

She mentioned that her major influence right now is nature, as she creates new fabrics for “her look” due to come out next year.  She also mentioned that she is working on designing the interior of a car for a major car company in hopes of attracting the number one buyers of this car, women.

 

Classic yet contemporary, sophisticated while accessible, these fabrics represent Candice’s love of everyday elegance. Interior Designer, Author and TV star, Candice is considered to be a pre-eminent design authority. DrapeStyle couldn’t be happier to add her collection of luxury fabrics to our designer collection.

Candice’s extraordinary technique, dynamic personality, and sophisticated style have made her a nationally acclaimed interior designer, author, and TV superstar. Candice’s signature style is one she describes as “a fusion of traditional form, scale and proportions, with the clean, crisp, simplistic beauty of modern design.”

Estate Belgian Linen in Ecru with Schumacher Trellis Midnight Edge-Band

What better time than Valentine’s week to celebrate the love we have for our customers! Thank you for providing dozens of jobs right here in Phoenix, Arizona.

DrapeStyle has been making custom drapesroman shades and pillows in the USA from the very start.  Why is this important?  We not only design here, we manufacturer here.  This means that DrapeStyle is able to control the quality of the products it produces.  The custom drapes and roman shades we produce right here in Arizona are of the highest quality in both fabric and workmanship.  I receive about two or three calls a week, from customers wanting to know where our drapes are made.  I’m proud to say that DrapeStyle’s products are made in the USA.

Need more great reasons to buy “Made in the USA” products?

  • When you buy American made products, the proceeds remain in the U.S. economy.  The money you spend then pays the workers that directly or indirectly created the product you just purchased!
  • American manufacturers abide by strict regulations to protect the environment.  These regulations do not exist in most of the top countries manufacturing and importing their goods into the USA causing massive pollution and environmental abuse.
  • Importing countries have little or non-existent regulations or standards for working conditions.  By keeping our dollars in the USA, we are not supporting these horrible working conditions (long hours, exploitation of children, extremely low wages, etc.).
  • Quicker turn around times.  Everything is here so that means it gets made more quickly, and gets shipped to you more quickly!
Custom Outdoor Drapery in Sunbrella Walnut
We feature Sunbrella Fabrics for all of our Custom Outdoor Drapery and Shades.

Nothing at DrapeStyle is “ready-made”.  Custom draperies take a little more time, cost a little more money, but we think it’s worth it.  And most importantly, all of our drapes, curtains, roman shades and pillows are made from the highest quality materials, right here in the USA, by a team of professionals that have an average of 25 years experience.  We hope you have as deep as a commitment to American-made products as we do.

Baby It’s Cold Outside-Why You Need Interlining!

With the arrival of the cold winter months, having the heat on all the time is tempting although it could be extremely costly and environmentally damaging especially for home with our double insulated windows.

It’s been said that heating accounts for over 70% of household energy consumption while the cost of running an average three-bedroom home exceeds the average mortgage or rent payment.

This figure is likely to skyrocket as winter comes. For poorly insulated or homes of larger sizes; there are ways to maximize what you’re paying for and keep your home warm without having to spend a fortune on heating.

Add flannel or bump interlining to your drapes to prevent heat loss

With poorly insulated or single glazing windows, constant heating is required to maintain a warm temperature in the home as heat can easily escape through the gaps and even the seal of good window frames can degrade over time.

Flannel lined drapes are a great way to save on energy bills as the additional layer can help retain warmth inside a room during the colder weather. With extra layers of flannel or bump interlining, the thicker lining also adds fullness and body to the drapes which creates a more luxurious look.

Similarly, interlining can actually block heat from coming in during the warmer weather. This style of lining is great for keeping your room at a comfortable temperature throughout the seasons. They also have the added benefits of being blackout and noise reducing.

Flannel or Bump interlining is placed between the fabric and the lining. It adds body and insulation to the drape. For an additional fee, DrapeStyle can add either to your draperies. Order samples here to see for yourself what a difference adding interlining can add to your drapes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep your curtains and drapes shut at night

To maximize the heating, shut your drapes so that the warmth can be retained as much as possible. Most studies suggest 18.5ºC or 65ºF as the optimal temperature for sleeping while temperatures below 12 ºC or 54ºF and above 23.8 ºC or 75ºF is said to be disruptive.

Use door curtains

I’ve always lived in the South West, so I’ve never thought of this, but it makes since if you live in a colder climate. Use door curtains for maximum coverage and keep the cold air out while giving your home a polished look upon entrance. Although useful and convenient, draught excluders are only able to provide a bottom seal whereas door curtains can cover all gaps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For more information on interlining, see our lining guide or contact us. We are happy to help you determine what would best suit your drapery needs.

Fun Crafts for Celebrating National Button Day

National Button Day is observed annually on November 16. Founded in 1938, the National Button Society recognized button collecting as an organized hobby.

I found this great website that has dozens of crafts you can create using buttons. So celebrate National Button Day by making something you can wear or decorate your home with!

These 26 Adorable Projects Will Totally Change The Way You Look At Buttons!

Whether you’re a sewing master or an all-round crafter, you may be one of the many who have a big collection of buttons stashed away. There’s no way that you’ll be able to use them all up on fixing buttonless shirts, so perhaps it’s time to think outside the box a little. These cute and clever button projects will give you some fantastic inspiration with regards to putting your collection to good use in non-traditional ways.

Button Bowl

Button Bowl

This cute and whimsical button bowl is the perfect way to store your little bits and bobs like jewelry or keys. It uses the same method as the cotton thread balls where you use a balloon to create the shape you want, much like a mold, which is then popped and discarded once everything is set and dried.

Quick Bookmarks

Quick Bookmarks

Everything you make doesn’t always have to be grand or complicated; you can make something as simple as a button bookmark with a paperclip that you know will be put to good use. It’s a quick and easy craft that can really help your school-going kids. DIY Instructions and Project Credit – IHeartNaptime

Simple Wall Art

Simple Wall Art

I just love this fleur-de-lis symbol, although, of course you can go with practically any image or monogram as long as it’s not too detailed or finicky. The best part about this project is that you don’t have to sew the buttons – you can cheat and just glue them on! DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Makely

Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree

If you have a good range of sizes among all your forgotten buttons, then you may be able to make yourself a few of these charming Christmas tree ornaments. If you don’t have enough greens, though, you can either spray paint them or simply embrace the non-traditional colors. DIY Instructions and Project Credit – ModernMinerals

Beautified Button Shoes

Beautified Button Shoes

Whether you want to vamp up an old pair of shoes, or you found a plain pair on sale for next to nothing, a really cute way to do so is to add buttons. You’ll have to take the longer sewing route with these; when considering all the movement of your feet in your shoes, the buttons may just pop off if you use hot glue to attach them. DIY Instructions and Project Credit – StarsForStreetlightsILoveToCreate and Scrapbook&CardsToday

Fridge Magnets

Fridge Magnets

Ok, so here’s a really nice and easy craft that is so simple, yet people don’t seem to think about it – button fridge magnets!

Headband

Easy Autumn Updates

living room drapes that puddle on the floor
Living Room Drapes with a six inch puddle.

Warm colors

As the weather cools you want to be cozy inside, so use warm colors to make your home feel inviting. There’s a bit of psychology going on here. We favor cool colors like blue and green during the hot months because they help us think of water and shady lawns. So during the cool months, use warm colors like red and yellow to conjure up warm fires hot drinks, and cozy blankets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Texture

This is a good way to warm up a space with neutral color palette. Touch a piece before you decide on it-it’s the tactile fell various materials, such as rustic wood tables, scratchy woven baskets, bumpy sisal rugs and soft fur blankets.

Striped Dupioni Silk in Veranda 14 with French Pleat.

 

Pattern

We associate fall with textiles like burlap, fleece an wool not only for their warmth but also for the bold patterns like plaids and stripes that come with them. Plaid is a classic fall choice that turns any room into a fall-friendly atmosphere, whether with throw pillows, blankets or prints on the wall.

Striped Silk Taffeta Drapes

Natural Elements

No fall decor is complete without a few pumpkins, gourds and fall leaves. Go outside and hunt around for bits of nature you can bring inside to display on your coffee table, scatter over your dining table centerpiece or put in a bowl on the mantel.

Enticing Scents

Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, chai-these are the scents of fall. Brew cups of tea to get you in the mood, and place batches of potpourri or candles around your home. You can also make a batch of spiced rum or cider to fill the house with the delicious scent.

Sherwin Williams 2018 Color of the Year-Oceanside

We are loving Sherwin Williams color of the year! Oceanside is a bold, beautiful, deep color that will make a statement in any room in your home!

2018 Color of the Year

A collision of rich blue with jewel-toned green, a color that is both accessible and elusive, Oceanside SW 6496, is our 2018 Color of the Year. A complex, deep color that offers a sense of the familiar with a hint of the unknown, Oceanside, bridges together a harmonious balance of blues and greens that can be found in what’s old and new.

The color blue evokes a multitude of moods and associations depending on hue, shade and application. Despite this variety, blues are universally perceived as intelligent, honest and interesting—making blue the most beloved color worldwide.

Oceanside’s multi-dimensional, marine-inspired look can create a welcoming statement as a lively color for a front door. Its green-meets-blue tone can also boost creative thinking and clarity of thought in a home office, or invite meditation and introspection into a bedroom or reading nook.

It is universal when it comes to design style from mid-century modern to Mediterranean-inspired, traditional to contemporary.

Using the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® Visualizer, you can explore the Color of the Year and with the swipe of a finger see it on any wall.

Tag your Oceanside Twitter and Instagram posts with #SWCOLORLOVE or upload a photo.

2018 Key color combinations featuring Oceanside

Oceanside’s versatility allows it to play well with many colors. It is a bright counterpart to equally eye-catching colors like Exuberant Pink SW 6840 or Honey Bees SW 9018 or it can rest relaxingly alongside other blues like In the Navy SW 9178 or Adrift SW 7608. It is also the ideal companion for corals and copper metallic tones because of its timeless association with nature.

Window Treatments That Won’t Hide Your Home’s Beautiful Trim

If you have beautiful molding around your window, it is understandable that you don’t want to cover it up. There are several window treatment options to cover and enhance the look of your windows.

Hanging the window treatments above your window will allow to to see the top and the bottom of your window and the molding around it. Hanging your treatments higher also makes your room look larger. Keep in mind the projection of the molding, that is, how far out from the wall does the molding protrude? You will need to purchase hardware brackets that have a projection that will clear the molding. You will also want your custom drapes to have a return about 1/2″ longer than the bracket projection.

Hanging drapery about an inch into the glass will create the illusion that your windows are wider than they are. Skinny windows suddenly become larger because you won’t see where the window begins.

 

 

 

Valances and cornice boards can make short windows appear longer. DrapeStyle can create matching custom valances in any of our 500 fabrics.

 

If you don’t want to cover up any of your molding, you may want to consider having Roman shades made. This will draw the attention to your windows and put the emphasis on your molding. Try selecting a contrasting color for your shades to really make your molding pop!

Measuring guides are available online, but if you’re still not sure about which option is best for your home, or need a little help determining sizes, please contact us and speak to one of our designers for more information.

Since 2002, DrapeStyle has made the highest quality custom window treatments, right here in the USA.  Our Arizona studio employs some of the most talented seamstresses, who have an average of 25 years of experience in making custom draperies.

DrapeStyle has also been awarded the Best of Houzz award for customer service four years in a row.  We love our customers and it shows!  Great customer service paired with the highest quality custom drapes, Roman shades and pillows.  You are sure to find exactly what you need to make your house a home.

Fabric Samples Available from DrapeStyle

 

At DrapeStyle, we’ve been making draperies for 15 years. It’s something we are very passionate about. The first step we suggest customers take, is to order fabric samples.  As we all know, computer monitors can vary in the way they perceive color. We want to be sure you are ordering exactly what you had in mind. By ordering fabric samples, you will be able to see the fabric up close, and in your home’s lighting. A lot of our customers tell me that they tape the fabric samples to the wall near the window they want draperies made! They will live with the samples for a few days and determine which color is best.

Need a little help narrowing down the fabrics? (we have over 600!) Customers are usually drawn towards a particular color or fabric. Do you love texture? I would suggest linen or handwoven linen. Want a dramatic classic look? Take a look at our Dupioni solid and striped silks. Looking for the latest trendy fabric? Check out our designer fabrics; Vern Yip, Sarah Richardson, Celerie Kemble, Candice Olson and more.

 

Once you have determined which fabric works best for you, take a look at our measuring guide. This will help you determine the best length and width for your draperies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which lining do you select? Again we have a guide to help you determine what would work best for your home. But as always, we’re here to answer any questions you may have.

 

 

Think you’re ready to place your order? Simply place your order online or contact us for any questions you may have. You will have your custom made drapery in about five weeks. It’s that easy!

Guide on How to Hang Curtains

This was originally posted by Casa Collective.  This guide has some really good information that would be good to share.

THE NO-FUSS GUIDE ON HOW TO HANG CURTAINS

THE CURTAIN ROD

  • The standard mounting height for a curtain rod is 4″ to 6″ above the window frame.
  • The higher you install the rod, the taller the window will appear. To make a window appear taller, install the rod from 8″ above the window frame to as high as the ceiling or bottom of crown molding.
  • If you have low ceilings and want to create the illusion of greater height, install the rod as close to the ceiling as possible.
  • To allow more light to come in when the curtains are open, the curtain rod should extend a minimum of 3″ beyond the window frame on each side.
  • To make a window appear wider and more grand, extend the rod 3″ to 6″ beyond the frame on each side.
  • Generally, the rod should be no more than 1/3 wider than the width of the window. For example, on a 54″ window you can add up to 9″ on each side (54 x 1/3 = 18) . That means the curtain rod can be up to 72″ in length.
  • If you have decorative trim that you’d like to reveal when the curtains are drawn back, allow at least a 12″ extension on both sides.

WIDTH OF CURTAINS

  • If the curtains are just framing the window and won’t be opened, you only need 1-1/2 times the width of the window.
  • To ensure that the curtains look full when closed, the combined width of the panels should be 2 to 2-1/2 times the width of the window.
  • For more fullness, opt for three times the width.
  • Always round the number up when determining the width of your panels. And when in doubt, go for the wider width.

LENGTH OF CURTAINS

  • Floor length curtains should just skim the floor or hang a 1/2″ above it.
  • You could allow a break of 1″ to 3″. This break is similar to what they do for trousers. The style is great for helping to compensate for uneven floors.
  • To create a more extravagant puddling effect, allow for an extra 6″ to 9″ in length. Tuck the fabric underneath and “poof” it up. Keep in mind, each time you vacuum the floor you’ll have to readjust the puddling. And if you have pets, they love to curl up on the extra fabric.
  • To determine the measurement of floor length curtains, measure from the top of the rod to the floor. Then subtract as necessary to allow for hanging hardware. If you plan to puddle the curtains on the floor, add the additional inches needed to do so.
  • In kitchen and high traffic areas, consider choosing a curtain length that skims the window sill.

 

MORE TIPS

  • Cafe curtains should be installed halfway up the window and be parallel to the fixed horizontal mullion (the vertical bar between the panes of glass). The length should just skim the window sill.
  • It’s easier to hem curtains than to make them longer, so always round up your measurements.

Tiebacks, Tassles, and Holdbacks Oh My!

Holdbacks to pull back draperies

 

 

Holdbacks go by several different names including medallions, tie backs and rosettes. No matter what you call them, they’re a great addition to your window treatment. Holdbacks alone can be use to create elegant swag treatments, or use them along with your drapery rods as tie backs.

When you think of traditional holdbacks tassels might come to mind. Available in any color and size, tassels are a classic way to complete the look of your drapery. Fabric tiebacks can also be used to pull back draperies and let the light in. Order fabric tiebacks in matching or contrasting colors or patterns to add interest to your draperies.

Many times drapery hardware will have matching holdbacks, or medallions. Available in wood, iron, or composite material, these are a great way to finish the look and pull your drapery out of the way.

Holdbacks, or medallions, can also be used to hang valances or drapery that will be decorative, instead of functional. Easy to install and inexpensive, you can create a unique look by using holdbacks to hang your window treatments. Or use a combination of the above.

Or if you’re looking for a unique look, get creative! Re-purpose a pretty door knob or use a remnant of rope or ribbon. For kids rooms you can tieback drapes with a stuffed animal, flowers or garland.

Trim your windows with decorative or functional tiebacks, tassels and holdbacks for a finished designer look.

Window Treatments for Bathrooms

Window treatment for your bathrooms. Everyone needs them, most likely you will need privacy for this space. So it’s a good thing there are so many options! Here are just a few:

Roman Shades

Decorative, inexpensive, and literally 1000’s of fabrics to choose from. Available in any color, you are sure to find a color or pattern to match your bathroom. And with so many possible styles, Roman Shades are so versatile that you can take your bathroom from smooth and sleek to classic and traditional.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vinyl Blinds

You can have the look of wood blinds in your bathroom. Where moisture is a factor, vinyl blinds are a great way to get the look you want. They won’t crack, warp or mildew so they are a perfect solution for the bathroom. Different finishes are available and you can even add a pop of color by adding decorative cloth tape.

 

Cafe Curtains

Beauty and privacy are possible with cafe curtains while letting in the natural light. Your view will remain while gaining light privacy by adding cafe curtains to the lower half of your window.

Vinyl Shutters

Classic shutters offer a stylish, elegant look. Shutters are also available in vinyl so they won’t crack or warp like wood. You can even use them like cafe curtains and use them on the bottom portion of your window.

 

Valances

Valances are a great way to add a pop of color to your window. Select a pattern or color that complements your bathroom’s color scheme. If privacy isn’t an issue, they can be used alone. Or, use them with a blind or cafe curtain. Valances can also make the window (and the bathroom) look larger. By having the valance mounted on the outside of the window, and higher than the window, you create a larger looking window resulting in a larger looking room.

 

If you are looking to dress up your bathroom window, or need a bit of privacy, give DrapeStyle a call. We can custom make drapes, curtains, Roman shades and valances to suit your needs.

Big or small, all bathrooms windows could use window treatments. Our seamstresses have an average of 25 years of experience so DrapeStyle is your go to place for all of your window treatment needs.
