We Know Drapes, Blinds and Curtains.

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Once in a while we get the chance to be part of a really cool decorating or restoration project.  Our most recent was in Paris California at the March Air Force Base.  The Base is well over 50 years old and they had the opportunity to re-decorate the Officers Club.  The Club was, well, it was tired.  But it also had tons of character.  You could sit in the 1950′s era deep red leather lounge chairs and just think of the conversations that Officers must have had in them back in World War II.  I think most of the paint and wallpaper was pretty original and the bar top – definitely.  The Team in charge of the re-model kept all of the that nostalgia and just freshened it up a bit.  They really maximized their budget.

DrapeStyle was awarded the bid to make all of the new custom curtains and drapes.  The Design Team chose a classic sheer curtain style and roman blinds that worked really well and didn’t break the bank.  We’ve done many commercial drapery projects at DrapeStyle but this was our first time doing a Project for the Military.  We really felt proud to have been selected and to have been able to make the new drapery right here in the USA.  I guess at the end of the day it just made us proud to be Americans.

Thank you very much to all of those who serve.

 

 

 

 

 

Go ‘Green’ with DrapeStyle

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Welcome to the DrapeStyle Blog. Why a Blog? Good question and I hope an equally good answer, “Information & Education”. We’ll strive to give you some good ideas and the best honest advice possible, and hopefully we’ll have some fun with it too.

So here we go…the inceptual Blog entry.

Saving Energy with DrapeStyle:

At DrapeStyle we consider ourselves “Green”. We love the planet, we love the environment and we love labrador puppies. We’d like to see them all flourish for generations to come. Now, what we would really love is to be “Green” and maybe save a couple of dollars in the process, that would be worth a bushel full of labrador puppies.

So, the money thing. Can you believe that according to the US Department of Energy, 25% of your energy expense leaks out of your windows. 25%. That’s more than I thought too. So if my average utility bill runs $250/Month or $3000/year of which $750 is wasted through your windows.

DrapeStyle to the rescue! You knew this was coming right? Well, we have the data, so let’s share it with you. The University of Texas at Austin, (we Love those Longhorns), did an energy study. They called it “The Drape Defense”. See why we love those Longhorns! In this study they found, and published, that a well insulated drape can reduce the heat loss of a single glazed window by up to 56%.

The savings are even better in the summer months and hot climates!. According to a study conducted by The University of Florida (Sorry Longhorns), well-made drapes can reduce the amount of heat-gains in your home by up to 33%!
I’m sure you knew this instinctively, but now when the Hubs comes home and you’ve got your new DrapeStyle covering your windows you can just tell him that your saving energy by the gobs!

Love it.
Here are the references so you don’t think we’re making this stuff up.
