As a side note, please disregard the time stamp on some of these pictures! It hadn't been calibrated to the correct date. :) Although, if the east coast looked this sunny and idyllic in January, maybe we'd consider relocating!
|Here is a view of the front of the house. We fell in love with this majestic old tree.|
|And this is a view from a window at the rear of the house. That is the ocean, and just beyond, you can see a little island!|
|Another view, another island.|
|I believe that's a fire pit out on the terrace. Imagine gathering around on a summer evening to watch the sunset, the salty ocean air washing over you. How relaxing.|
|In the distance, you can see the remains of an old pier, and more little islands beyond that. It's really very picturesque.|
Now, for draperies!!
|These panels were hung all throughout the family room. The metal poles were custom-painted to match the other accents in the house.|
|Bay area setting. So much beautiful natural lighting.|
|We made sure to hang all the drapes well over the frame of the window so that, while they're open, you can enjoy 100% of the view. As you can see from the pictures above, that's a view worth preserving!|
|This is an upstairs family room. Again, the window coverings are designed to frame the window without obstructing the view or blocking the light. Clean, simple lines.|
|Here's a closer view of one of the windows from the upstairs family room.|
|This is from the master bedroom-- one of my favorite shots. This picture was included in our last post, but I couldn't resist posting it again with the others.|
|Also from the master bedroom, we've done roman shades for these two little recessed windows, and upholstered matching cushions for the window seats!|
|While we were here, we had to admire the sheer number and scale of the windows in this house. This was taken from the main staircase in the foyer.|
|And this! It's a decorative light fixture. It reminds me of bubbles. A simply fabulous touch.|
We had an absolutely wonderful time working on the drapes for this house. We flew back twice--and even made the 6000 mile round-trip drive once!--and stayed in the coach house (not pictured here, although also on the property). It was a pleasure and a privilege to be involved in this project. We can't wait to encounter another opportunity of this kind.
