You need the right harmony of not just colors but also different textures and elements that surround you.  Think about adding glass partitions, natural stone decorations, wooden floors, bamboo blinds and a few organic textures.  Clean lines, neutral hues, indoors and out.  Balance and harmony create a serene space in these neutral colors.

sherwin williams color of the year

“It’s like gray and brown had a baby.”

You might recall that last year Sherwin-Williams chose “Alabaster” white as the Color of the Year. Well, are you ready for their 2017 pick? Drumroll, please: The big winner is “Poised Taupe,” which isn’t hot or cold, dark or light, but something in the middle zone. Or, according to what Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, told the Today Show: “It’s like gray and brown had a baby.”
The company says the hue is a modern take on a timeliness classic and explained their choice in a statement: “It signals a new direction in society’s ever-growing thirst for beautiful neutrals that bring warm and cool tones together to create one irresistibly versatile color.” We have to say, this color definitely strikes the balance between bold and subtle.

“Neutrals are shifting,” Wadden says. “For five years everybody’s talking about gray ― well, they’re warming up.” So, basically, if you want to stay ahead of the trends, this color is calling your name. Even though it’s not a bright red, blue or other in-your-face hue, it’ll make a statement as soon as guests enter your home. If you can’t picture what this would look like in your home, allow us to help.

In an entry way with wood floors and white trim it comes off as traditional and inviting — but we recommend adding a few colorful accents (like the orange flowers seen here!) to keep the space from feeling stuffy or boring.

Meanwhile, if you want to use it in your bedroom, try to stick with light-colored floors and bedding so the hue doesn’t transform your nighttime escape into a dark cave.

And in the kitchen, this dark neutral will pair well with most existing color schemes (so you won’t have to invest in brand new dishes). Here, a rustic yellow and seafoam green hold their own against the gray walls.

Everyone is loving this color, so I thought I would re-post this article from Elle Decor, by Lauren Smith, originally posted August 31, 2016.

DrapeStyle has many fabrics that would compliment this color scheme.  View our fabrics here, or simply contact us for more ideas and inspiration.  At DrapeStyle we have been making custom drapes, Roman shades and pillows since 2002.

If you have any questions about drapery pricing, please feel free to contact us. We love helping our customers design their dream drapes. Maybe that’s why DrapeStyle has been awarded Best of Houzz in Customer Service three years in a row. We invite you to read our Houzz reviews and join us in the DrapeStyle experience.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

labor-day-weekendHappy Labor Day from DrapeStyle!

Here is a little information about Labor Day, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer.

Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor. “Labor Day” was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, which organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S. states officially celebrated Labor Day.

Designing an Outdoor Room

Designing an outdoor room is a lot like designing a room inside your home. Design principles such as balance, mood, scale, proportion and unity still apply, with the added challenge of managing unpredictable natural elements. While there are many ways to enjoy the outdoors – lounging in a chair by the pool, sitting among your flowers on a garden bench, watching the neighbors stroll by from the rocking chair on the front porch – there is something special about creating a room that is fully considered from a design perspective, but just happens to be outside.

Here are our favorite ways to elevate your current outdoor space into a beautifully designed outdoor room.

Choose a Focal Point

Ask yourself how you plan to use the outdoor room and let your design revolve around the function. Will you entertain in the space? Play games with your children? Dine al fresco? Once you’ve determined the main function of the space, make that the focal point and choose furniture, fabrics and accessories just as you would for an indoor space. For an outdoor dining room, start with a beautiful teak table with dining chairs upholstered in fade-resistant Sunbrella fabric. A retractable awning over the dining space keeps the room cool during the mid-day heat and can be opened after the sun goes down to reveal the stars above.

Take Control of Light and Shade

Part of the joy of being outdoors is feeling the warm sun on our skin and the wind blowing through our hair. But when the sun gets too hot, a covered porch offers the perfect retreat from the elements. A simple covered porch can be elevated to the status of outdoor room with the addition of retractable power screens. A custom-fit power screen made with easy-to-clean Sunbrella shade fabric allows you to enjoy the comforts of an outdoor living room all year long.

Don’t Be Afraid to Accessorize

Adding accessories is the easiest and quickest way to elevate your current outdoor space into a bonafide outdoor room. Decorative pillows in coordinating Sunbrella fabrics make the outdoor furniture just as cozy as your living room sofa, and stylish lanterns serve as reading lamps at twilight. Be sure to incorporate other accessories that you would normally see inside, such as a Sunbrella throw for when the breeze picks up, a Sunbrella rug for softness underfoot and hanging artwork that bring your personality into the design.

No roof? No problem.

An outdoor space doesn’t have to have an awning or a roof to be considered a room. A large slate patio serves as the blueprint for this outdoor living room in the middle of the backyard. Comfortable love seats are arranged in a symmetrical layout to encourage conversation and a large, stone fire pit provides warmth while performing double duty as the coffee table. Side tables add both interest and function, and marine-inspired lanterns serve as living room lamps when the sun goes down.

Happy “Thread The Needle Day”

Black background

Happy “Thread The Needle Day”.  Who knew there was such a thing, right?

Although the statement could have several meanings, I’ve decided to focus on the more literal meaning.  Today can be all about sewing or learning to sew.  I occasionally sew, and maybe this will be the push I need to finish some of the sewing projects I have started.  What about you?  Have you ever wanted to learn to sew?

Before investing in a good machine, it might be a good idea to take a few sewing classes at your local craft store.  This will give you a good idea of the time and patience you’ll need to take up sewing as a hobby.

Large Spools twine

Spools of Thread




Keep an open mind.  Know that learning anything new, takes time to master the task and get good at it.  When I was learning to sew, I can remember having to take my seam ripper to many projects because I sewed together the wrong pieces, or sewed on the wrong side, etc.  Practice, practice, practice.  You can inexpensively practice your sewing skills on thrift store sheets and bargain thread.  Start with simple projects so that you can fine tune your skills.  And if you have an experienced friend that you can go to for questions, that can be tremendously helpful.

White background 2

Make things you like.  If  you have a genuine interest in what you’re making, you’re more likely to stick with it.  When I started sewing, I had a cousin that was a toddler.  That poor kid had the cutest, silliest, outfits made for him.  His mother was kind enough to actually have him wear them (or at least long enough to take pictures and send them to me).  Those photos will be great for embarrassing him later in life.

Search the internet.  Pinterest and You Tube have great ideas and how to tutorials.  I always find visuals much more helpful than written instructions.

Now, if you find that your sewing skills aren’t up to par and you need a little assistance for your window treatment project, contact DrapeStyle.  We have been making custom Drapes, Roman Shades and Pillows since 2002.  Our seamstresses have an average of 25 years experience so you are sure to get premium products, quality craftsmanship and a great price.


How To Care For Your Drapes









How should I care for my drapes?  This is a question I get asked quite frequently.

The best answer I can give is, “Let a professional take care of it”.  With each drapery order from DrapeStyle, you will receive instructions on how to care for your drapes.  You shouldn’t try to clean them yourself.  You do not want to launder, wash or dry clean your drapes. Typical household cleaners can permanently damage the fabric.  You should have your drapes professionally cleaned by a company that has experience with draperies.  Not every dry cleaner knows how to properly clean drapes, so do a little research and locate a drapery cleaner so that you can protect your beautiful investment.


Vacuuming and dusting your draperies can help. Regular cleaning reduces the build up of allergens like dust mites, animal hair and dander, and may offer some relief to those with allergies or asthma.  If drapes are touched often, natural oils in the skin can leave residue that builds up and attracts further dust.  Without proper and regular cleaning, dusty and grimy window treatments begin to look dull and discolored, detracting from the beauty of the window or door that they cover.  Regularly cleaning your window treatments prolongs the life of fabrics and keeps colors from becoming dingy.

bordered-linen-drapery-4Simply put; call a professional.  You don’t ever want to launder or scrub your drapes or roman shades.  The best way to care for your window treatments is to call a professional drapery cleaner who will take your window treatments down, remove the metal drapery hooks, have them dry-cleaned, reinstall the metal drapery hooks, and then return and re-hang for you.

Purchasing your drapes and roman shades from DrapeStyle is an investment.  And one of the best ways to maintain the look and feel of your window treatments is regular cleaning.  If you have any questions about how to maintain your window treatments, please contact us, and we would be happy to help you.

Let’s Talk Texture. Handwoven Silk.

With Pillow                                                                                                                                                                                                        Silk is commonly thought to be one of the most treasured and luxurious fabrics in the world. The textile is a sign of high class and refined taste, and has been adored by designers and consumers for the entirety of its long and complex history.

Silk fabric was first developed in ancient China, and China remains the top producer of silk today.  India is the second largest producer of silk but the largest consumer of silk.  Silk is one of the strongest fibers.  It can be weaken when exposed to too much sunlight.


Drapestyle carries several types of silk, including beautifully textured, Handwoven Silk.  Available in 18 colors, our handwoven silk is soft with a touch of sheen.

Handwoven Silk is a bit different than Taffeta Silk.  Where Taffeta Silk has a smooth finish, Handwoven Silk is more textured and has slubs.  Slubs are soft thick fabric nubs purposely set for this desired effect.  At DrapeStyle, sateen lining and flannel interlining are complementary when you purchase silk drapes.  This helps insulate your windows during hot and cold months, protects the silk fabric from sun damage, and adds body and fullness to the drape.

With Bench

DrapeStyle also adds drapery weights to the inside of the bottom hem of all drapes, 1 1/2″ double side hems, 5″ headers and bottom hems, and all striped silks are patterned matched.  It’s details like this that has made DrapeStyle a favorite among designers and home owners since 2002.  And all of our window treatments are made right here in the USA.  Using the highest quality fabrics paired with a talented team of seamstresses and you are sure to love your drapes as much as we loved making them.

If you have any questions about the different types of silk DrapeStyle offers, please contact one of our designers.  We love helping our customer design their dream drapes.  Maybe that’s why DrapeStyle has been awarded Best of Houzz in Customer Service three years in a row.  We invite you to read our Houzz reviews, and join us in the DrapeStyle experience.  You will be pleased.

Blackout Lining for Drapes

Whisper Mulberry Silk, Pinch Pleat












Selecting drapery lining and interlining, including blackout lining, for your new drapes, curtains or roman shades is one of the most important decisions you can make for creating the “Perfect Custom Curtain or Drape” for your home.  By adjusting your lining and interlining choices, you can create specific results for your room.  Whether you are trying to reduce light penetration, reduce external noise, save on energy costs or just wish to create a fuller bodied drape, your drapery lining choice is key.

Properly lined and well made custom drapery and roman shades can provide significant insulating benefits and reduce your homes energy usage.  Blackout lining offers exceptional UV protection.  This will protect your drapes from sun damage and keep your home cooler this summer.  It also provides complete privacy, muffles sound and lasts longer than any other window treatment.Blackout







We often refer to “Blackout Lining” as the “Boutique Hotel Look”.  Blackout lining is almost exclusively used in hotel rooms.  It blocks nearly 100% of the outside light from penetrating the drape.  Blackout lining is a synthetic material which can be very rigid (like in most hotels). There are several types and grades of blackout lining.  At DrapeStyle we use a very specific blackout lining that is extremely flexible and soft.  Blackout lining can be quite expensive.  But if you are looking for nearly complete blockage of sunlight, streetlights and UV protection, it is a great investment.

DrapeStyle only uses Hanes linings and interlinings.  Hanes is one of the oldest textile manufacturing firms in America.  While Hanes is well known for their clothing fabrics, those in the textile industry know Hanes for their high-quality linings and interlinings.  Hanes is recognized as the leader in residential drapery lining products.  Designers insist on Hanes because they know that without a high quality lining or interlining, the sun will fade and destroy any drape quickly.  A high quality lining not only makes the drape look better and feel better but it is critical to ensuring your drapes will not fade or disintegrate from the sun.

DrapeStyle is pleased to offer blackout lining for an additional $99 per drapery panel.  You may also select blackout lining for your Roman Shades for a nominal fee.  Blackout lining will more than pay for itself when you consider the amount of heat that it will deter from entering your home this summer, and the protection it will offer your other home furnishings.

Tiffany Blue Trending Now…


Just the words, “Tiffany Blue” conjure up thoughts of a little, blue, box, with a white satin bow.  Then your mind starts to dream up the beautiful things that little box can hold.

The color known as Tiffany Blue was selected by founder Charles Lewis Tiffany for the cover of Blue Book, Tiffany’s annual collection of exquisitely handcrafted jewels, first published in 1845.  Also referred to as robin’s-egg blue or forget-me-not blue, this distinctive color may have been chosen because of the popularity of the turquoise gemstone in 19th-century jewelry.  Turquoise was also a favorite of Victorian brides who gave their attendants a dove-shaped brooch of turquoise as a wedding day memento.

Tiffany Blue was later adopted for use on Tiffany shopping bags, as well as in advertising and other promotional materials.  True to the founder’s vision, the Tiffany Blue Box became an icon of luxury and exclusivity.

Pantone (the company responsible for developing the standardized color reproduction system) developed, and closely guards, the formula for the Tiffany Blue color.  No one else can legally use THE Tiffany Blue color.

The Tiffany Blue has been a popular trend, and you can purchase just about anything in this shade, including window treatments. DrapeStyle has several blue fabrics that would work well with this classic theme.  We would be happy to send you fabric samples of any of our beautiful blues, and your first $10 in samples are free.  Everything DrapeStyle makes is custom made, so you are free to design your very own drapes, Roman Shades or pillows in any of our over 500 fabrics.

IKAT trends




IKAT (pronounced ee-kot) continues to be one of the hottest trends in home and fashion today.  Ikat comes to us from places like Indonesia, India, and central Asia.

Ikat is defined as “a method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibers. The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern or design.

What does this really mean?  You can easily add a bit of this fun, global style to your home without breaking the bank!

A tray, vase, rug, footstool or pouff; items like these throughout the room can really add a punch of color and carry through the Ikat theme.

Hover, Break or Puddle? What Length Should My Drapes Be?

Hover.  Break.  Puddle.  You probably know these words but did you know they also pertain to drapes and curtains?


Determining the length of your drapes takes a little thought.  First, ask yourself a few questions:

What is the style of the room you are having drapes made for?  Is it formal or casual?

Does this room get a lot of traffic?  You do have kids and pets constantly running through the room?  Will there be traffic going in and out of the door the drapes will be hanging from?

What kind of flooring is in this room?  Carpet?  Tile?  Wood?  What length will look best with your type of flooring?


Finishing Touch

Not only are drapes like “Jewelry”, creating the finishing touch to your room, but they can provide privacy, help with heating and cooling cost, and make your room and windows appear larger.  So it is important that we make your custom drapes the correct size.

These are examples of drapes that are too short:













What a difference drapes make!  

This is the same sized window; doesn’t the window on the left look so much bigger?














Hang ’em HIGH and WIDE!

This is a trick that designers use to make the space appear larger than it is.  Your room will look taller if your drapes hang 2″ from the ceiling.  Measure 2″ below the ceiling or moulding, to the floor for your finished length.  If your space doesn’t allow you to hang your drapes this high, you can hang the drapery rod 4″ above the window moulding.  Measure from this point to the floor and this will be your finish length.



Next, let’s define a few terms:

Hover or Floor Length-Drapes that meet the floor:

This is the most popular option for customers to select.  Floor length drapes lend a more casual look, and are a more practical option if the drapes will be opened and closed often.  If you are using a drapery rod with rings, measure from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor to get your finished length.

Trouser Break-Drapes break like a pair of trousers-one inch of fabric on the floor:

Trouser break drapes offer a tailored, but more casual look with that designer touch.  Take the measurement from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor and add one inch.  All fabrics look great with this look.



Minimal Puddle-Drapes “puddle” or gather slightly on the floor:

Beautifully tailored looking drapes with a minimal puddle.  This look adds softness to a room for a more cozy feel.  Take the measurement from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor and add 1-3″ to create this look.

Moderate Puddle-Drapes with a more substantial amount of fabric gathered on the floor:

Take the measurement from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor and add 3-6″ for a moderate puddle.  This style is more appropriate for rooms with less traffic, where you won’t be cleaning the floors often.  This lends towards a more formal look, and drapes that puddle can really help with heating and cooling loss!

Opulent Puddle-A large amount of fabric gathered on the floor:

A more formal, luxurious feel.  Measure from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor, and add 6-8″ for an opulent puddle.  This style is usually used in formal settings, perfect for drapes that won’t be opened and closed often.  For a romantic look, silk fabrics look beautiful when puddled on the floor.














Special circumstances

If you are designing outdoor drapes, you may want your drapes a couple of inches off the ground.  Keep in mind that on your patio, water may puddle, dirt and leaves may collect, so by shortening your drapes two inches you will prevent the bottom of the drapes from getting dirty:

What is a Width?

What is a “Width”?  This is probably the question I am asked most often from customers.


You ordered fabric samples.  You taped the fabric samples to your wall next to the window.  You lived with those samples taped to your wall for two weeks, and finally decided on a color.  Now you’re ready to order your drapes.

Quantity, check.  Fabric, check.  Pleat, check.  Length, check.  Width…..width?  Do I need 1 width?  2 and a half widths?  What IS a width?

You are online, ordering drapes and you hit a snag.  What is a “width”?  This is the question I am asked most often.  A width refers to the width of the fabric used to make a drape or curtain.  Usually, when you roll the fabric off a bolt, it is about 54″ wide.  1 width starts out at 54″ wide.  The sewing begins by gathering and tacking the pleat.  Then we create 1 1/2″ side hems with blind stitching.  Then we sew 3 1/2″ overlaps-you want the drapes to overlap in the center, so light does not shine through.



These pictures are examples of drapes that do not have overlaps, they are not wide enough to completely close:



Emily-Henderson_Design-Mistakes 2










DrapeStyle also creates 3 1/2″ returns-a return is a piece of fabric at the end of the drape that returns back to the wall so that light does not shine through the sides.  So what started as a 54″ wide piece of fabric, is now a 26″ wide drape with French Pleats.

Here are some examples of returns:

So based on all of these details, NOW how many widths do I need?


DrapeStyle has this easy formula we use to determine width:

Length of drapery rod (in inches) + 16″ = X

X divided by the # of drapes = how many inches wide each drape should be.


Ask yourself how wide is your window?  Or better yet, how wide is the drapery rod you are going to hang your drapes on?  If your window is 48″ wide, you will probably want to extend the drapery rod at least 4″ on both sides of the window.  So your finish width is 56″.

Take the finished width, 56″, and add 16″ to account for hems and overlaps.  56″ plus 16″ equals 72″.

Take this number, 72″, and divide it by the number of drapes you would like.  Usually the number of drapes is 2.  So 72″ divided by 2 equals 36″. You want each drape to be at least 36″ wide.  This will ensure that the drapes will have adequate coverage and it will be 2 times fullness.  Fullness refers to the additional fabric needed to make the pleats full and rich looking.  At DrapeStyle, we think that 2 times fullness looks great.  You want your drapes to look, full, luxurious, and rich looking.  Not wimpy, and you certainly want to be sure that the drapes are made wide enough to close.  After all, you paid for the drapes to block out light and add a little privacy, right?


Here’s a chart to help you:





Or, when you are entering your information online, next to the width you select, it will tell you how wide the drape will be:
