I am lucky enough to count many of my clients as my "favorite clients". My very first client is one of these...we have continued to work together on projects throughout her home since 1995.
We haveredone her childrens' rooms several times, moving from almost-nursery style, to juvenile looks, to youthful styles, to teen rooms. It is fun to watch the progression of the kids' rooms and the styles, colors and themes that they like and how they change.
This valance was designed and fabricated by a friend of the family. The homeowner wanted to add some stronger color and style to the treatment and to coordinate with a new quilted Pottery Barn coverlet in a pretty kiwi green color.
The photo is the "before" shot of the pair of windows.
By adding an overlay with custom embroidery and coordinating cording, the bedspread is tied in and the valance (stationary roman shade) has some added weight and detail.
The photos below show a young boy's room - he loves basketball, and more specifically, the Houston Rockets. We used a purchased plaid comforter as our base, and incorporated the Houston Rockets theme. We ordered these wonderful and large Rockets pennants, and mounted them on a black backdrop, blackout lined to prevent light bleed-through and fading.
Centering the valance is a custom embroidered pennant with the boy's name positioned vertically and a "swooshing" basketball flying through the net. Contrasting banding and cording mimics the Rockets banners for unity and balance.
Below is the completed room which features some of his sports memorabilia on display. He was happy with his room, as was his mom. It was a fun project that I enjoyed working on. Kids rooms are always great to plan and coordinate, and I love working with themes and incorporating custom embroidery too.
