Let the Decorating Begin!


Testing the blue color on the ceiling.
Sarah loves it.  
 "Holy chic! This paint color is GORGEOUS!"

Sarah has chosen a simple Navajo White for the walls and gloss white for the base board, chair rail and crown molding.

Next, deciding on a window treatment style and fabrics for the window and chairs.  Keeping in thought the poolside cabana, white drapery with black accents, such as an inset banding following a geometric design was an option. 

Sarah shares her thoughts on the window treatment design...  

"I like classic black and white.  A solid color drapery was certainly an option, but when I saw the black and white geometric print from Greenhouse Fabrics, I knew it was the perfect choice for floor length drapery panels" 

What about the drapery design?  Sarah shares her concern for keeping a balance between the old and new. 

"Our home was built in 1942.  It is a Colonial Cape.  It features traditional moldings and hardwood floors.  I don't want this room to look like it landed from outer space, it has to look like it fits.  I chose to keep my traditional furnishings and mirrors.  I also opted to go with light walls and classic white woodwork"

Simple white slipcovers for the chairs will fit in perfectly with the Colonial style of the home but there will be a twist... chunky black zippers will be used in the center back and black vinyl seats will make the chairs easy to clean for this busy family.  Rowley Company's Laurie Medford has started creating a pattern.

In addition to the window and chair fabrics, Sarah has also chosen a solid red which will add a pop of color in a warmer hue as an accent color.

The fabrics were selected, the order placed and Greenhouse delivered in two days to the workroom here at Rowley Company.  We are excited to begin sewing!
