This multi layered very custom application was designed in response to our clients request for a “Baroque-Classical” style window dressing that provided solar control, privacy and blackout features. The treatments on the arched French Doors are Austrian Shades made of silk sheer and are mounted in such a way as to look a part of the wall mounted drapery. The Lambrequin Valance is designed so that it covers the wall space and combined with the swags and cascades made of various contrasting silks, totals eight layers of drapery. The biggest challenge in designing and installing this application, was the limited space surrounding the French Doors. The before and after pictures to the right demonstrate the dramatic enhancement achieved by WPM Designers Evelyne Saul & Larry Mesa that has been featured in several publications.
