Palos Verdes

Well, first of all, I am making some design changes to the blog, working on individualizing and improving the layout, the overall look and feel. I'm not a professional, mind you, so it's a work in progress. Anyway, we made a trip to Palos Verdes, CA yesterday to install some silk panels for one of our favorite customers.

Here are some highlights!

Look at the detailing on this material? The texture is amazing and the colors are so rich.

Honestly, these are some of my favorite sheers. The detailed cut-out, pictured here, occurs about 2/3rds of the way down the panel. The stitching is just spectacular and the overall effect is simply stunning.

Here you can see the final scalloping detail, which we've lightly puddled along the hardwood floors. Soft. Elegant.

This is the main room. As you can see, we've done back to back swags with jabots centering each window. What's special about these swags in particular is that they've been rounded at the edges to give the impression of a subtle arching over the window. Typically, swags are attached to a flat board. Also, the panels and sheers puddle lightly against the floor to give a romantic feeling to the entire scene.
This is the material we used in the master bedroom.

You can see the panels here, coupled with gold sheer, and an arched cornice box valance. With the BRIGHT afternoon sunlight streaming in, you can't help but admire how it all seems to glow.
