Ripple Fold Drapes: A Journey

When we renovated our kitchen two summers ago, we decided to add drapes to a feature window that previously had only had horizontal blinds.  Our kitchen design was very modern, so we didn’t want anything too fussy for the drapes.  I had seen the displays for Ripple Fold drapes in our Fabricana Home stores and had always admired their simplicity and functionality.  I installed the track and created the panels and voila!  The calculations had to be precise, but the installation was simple and the results were beautiful!

DIY: Silk Egg Dye

DIY Silk Egg Dye with Blown Out Eggs
 
Here is another fun Easter project to do just in time for Easter Egg Hunting! Whether you celebrate Easter or not, this is a beautiful and easy project to do with friends and family. I also found that this is much less expensive than buying ties for their silk at thrift stores or department stores. With silk ends, cut offs, scraps or small cuts it allows for a beautiful look and an inexpensive craft. With new silks this project will cost between $3-$5 !

A Refreshing Palette: Robert Allen @HOME Spring 2019

Spring is officially here and with it comes a new, refreshing palette from Robert Allen @HOME.  The names of the fabrics evoke a northern European aesthetic blended with inspiration from Japanese modernity.  Large scale prints capture our attention while smaller scale prints, jacquards and embroidery add a layer of texture and visual interest.  The collection seems tailor-made for a relaxing master suite or casually elegant dining or living space.
